The Dix Town Board called a Special Meeting Feb. 7 to discuss concerns — both their own and those expressed by various of their constituents — regarding the planned Woodstock 50 concert weekend planned in August at Watkins Glen International.
The meeting, poorly promoted and attracting only a handful of people, was urged by board member Dominick Smith after concerns from various residents prompted him to seek more information. WGI is located in the Town of Dix.
On hand to answer questions was Schuyler County Legislator Phil Barnes, whose message to the board was be patient until all of the necessary information is obtained.
Toward that end, he said, the Legislature at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11, in the County Building will have on hand high-ranking members of the New York State Police to outline plans for the Woodstock weekend. Up to three such officials might be present, Barnes said, according to information available late Thursday afternoon.
