Patti Meagher has lived in Lake Clear for 37 years. She’s worked for the Town of Harrietstown for 12 years as Deputy Town Clerk and Deputy Tax Collector and Court Clerk. She retired from that job this past summer. She says Lake Clear hasn’t changed much in the 37 years. We spoke with Patti about Snowmobiling, her thoughts on the rail trail, and the issues relating to the Town Hall. During our conversation she also comments on the Airport as well as the industrial park. During a recent interview with the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Meagher says She’s ”retired and have some time to do some things that are interesting to me aside from raising a family and working every day,” she said. “I’m interested in what’s going on in the town and how things are being handled.”
Meagher said the airport has “taken a front seat” for the town board while other areas that need to be addressed have been overlooked.
“There’s repairs to the (town hall) building that probably should have been done a long time before now, and now they’re a more critical issue,” she said. “My focus is to put more emphasis on the entire town rather than just one area.”
Meagher said she doesn’t want to see the airport closed, but she questioned some of the projects the board has planned for the facility. She cited a plan for a general aviation terminal, which the town has now abandoned, calling it a “terrible idea for the taxpayers and something we didn’t need.”
