DEC crews clean up oil spill in Boonville

Crews were in downtown Boonville on Tuesday cleaning up oil that had spilled from a container. A DEC spokesperson stated that a tractor-trailer was carrying a 300 gallon container of new synthetic oil for 2-cycle engines when the container ruptured & spread a thin layer of oil on the road for some 7 miles until it came to its destination in Boonville. Some of the oil was recovered after the truck had stopped. The DOT & Boonville DPW spread sand on the road as traffic conditions were slippery in places. The DEC added that the incident was more about traffic safety than an environmental hazard. Boonville Police & Environmental Conservation Police assisted at the scene with traffic control.

Governor unveils agribusiness initiative

Governor Cuomo announced several initiatives to assist new and early-stage farmers, and encourage the continued growth of
agribusiness across New York. The New York State New Farmers Grant Fund, which will support beginning farmers and encourage farming as a career has been launched and is now taking applications. In addition, State Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball will be convening a working group to examine the barriers to establishing an agricultural operation and the assistance that is available. Partnering with Empire State Development, the working group will consist of agency representatives, lenders and financial institutions, land resource specialists, and select groups or individuals that represent the new, beginning farmer. Agriculture is one of the most important economic drivers in New York State.
