Stuyvesant is located in the northwest corner of Columbia County on the eastern bank of the Hudson River. It is bordered by Rensselaer County to the north, the Town of Kinderhook to the east, and the Town of Stockport to the south.
A town of approximately 2,300 people, Stuyvesant is an agricultural community dotted with single family residences and small businesses. The predominance of farming within the community has left its rural character much the same as it's been for over the last 100 years. Stuyvesant's bucolic landscape belies the fact that it is located less than 20 miles south of the state capital of Albany, New York. Centrally located in the state and the region, the town is approximately two and a half hours from both New York City and Boston.
Two documents were uploaded to the Website this morning. The 2014 Standard Workday Resolution has been posted in the Document Center under "Public Notices" to satisfy the legal requirement of 30 days of public posting.
Supervisor Knott discussed the 2014 Town Budgets Comparison Report at the recent Town Board meeting. There was a request to have the information included on the website. That document can be found in the Document Center, under "Town Board" -- scroll to the bottom of the page -- after the sub-categories.

As I have been kept busy with Town and County issues, it is now past time for an updated newsletter. Here are some highlights from the last several months of local government.
Last June the town once again hosted “Big Truck Day” which is sponsored by the Kinderhook Library. It was for the second year a great success. The event is scheduled again for this year on June 21st 2014, hope you will all plan to join us.
