Tupper Lakers stay despite impending road closure
April 29, 2011 - Jessica Collier
Word is that state Routes 3 and 30 between Tupper and Saranac Lake are about to be closed due to flooding near the Crusher.
It was brought up at the hearing as a concern, but everyone decided to continue with the session today instead of stopping. They want to keep things going, rather than delaying the tight schedule set for this two-week set of hearing sessions.
Several Tupper Lakers decided to stay rather than get home before the road is closed. It would appear that Mayor Mickey Desmarais, Bob Fuller, Elaine Yabroudy, BG Read, Don Dew, Jon Kopp, Fred Schuller and Dan Spada of the APA all decided to stay. There's a two- or three-hour detour they can use to get home, but most of them are talking about just parking their cars before the road closure and having someone come pick them up after they wade through the water.
Desmarais said Deputy Mayor Tom Snyder is meeting with Franklin County Emergency Services officials about potentially declaring a state of emergency in Tupper Lake and otherwise holding down the fort at home.
I've offered my couch to them, too, but no one seems to want to take me up on it. I wouldn't, either.
