After more than three hours of discussion and public comment, New Paltz’s elected officials essentially opted to delay a March 19 public referendum on the merger of the village and town. Dec. 6’s emergency meeting featured a tense exchange, complete with a threatened walkout from town Councilman Jeff Logan -- and a debate during which both Mayor Jason West and Supervisor Susan Zimet looked at times red-faced, angry and annoyed. Citizens who showed up for public comment complained about a lack of transparency in setting up the meeting -- notice of which was sent out only two days earlier on Dec. 4.
