Hinsdale Voters Skeptical of New Project

A revised capital project didn’t go over very well with voters in Hinsdale.
At a public hearing Hinsdale Central School District officials presented early details of their new capital project plan, they say won’t cost to taxpayers anything and is $2 million cheaper than what voters rejected in April. But voters criticized the $4.8 million proposal. IT still includes buying about 14 acres of land next to the school building to build an athletic complex and nature pavilion.

Watch out for more rain. And more rain could mean flooding across the state.
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch through 3 p.m. today in Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. Storms could have heavy rain across the region today. While the flash flood threat many diminish for a time this afternoon, another area of low pressure moving across the area will create another potential for flash floods. Urban areas, small streams and areas in steep terrain will be at highest risk.
