Park dispute from page 1 for $210,000, after a dispute erupted about what buildings in the parkâ€™s festival space should be demolished. Warren County has owned 62 percent of the project, with the town and village each starting out with 19 percent. The village â€˜s share doubled to 38 percent with the sale. When the new town board, under the leadership of new town Supervisor Dennis Dickinson, sought to reclaim its former share, the village balked, citing that it wanted more clout. Village trustees also said they were wary of the townâ€™s shifting positions on ownership. Village officials insisted thy wanted to hang on to their 38 percent, and suggested the county ought to relinquish part of its ownership. Then at last monthâ€™s county board meeting, a straw poll showed the prevailing opinion was for the county to dump its entire stake. Those involved in the project, however, said such a move could stymie the project and dry up state and federal grant funding, by showing a lack of solid local support. June 5, the standoff was all but resolved as the decision was reached for all entities to hold even shares. â€œThis is a great arrangement,â€? Lake George Village Mayor Blais said after the vote. â€œWeâ€™ll be bringing the town back in, and weâ€™ll only be dropping five shares.â€? Dickinson said he was happy with the new hefty, equal ownership stake, even though it would be costing his taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars up front to buy back in. â€œIâ€™m excited,â€? he said. â€œI canâ€™t believe this change in direction came this fast.â€? Chester Supervisor Fred Monroe, who chairs the park's ad-hoc committee, estimated that the town would need to pay from $560,000 to $620,000 to buy back into the project â€” about $700,00 or so in initial acquisition costs plus subsequent development expenses, minus about $140,000 the town had left invested in the effort, which would be repaid to the Town.
