NY - Lloyd to end suit against bridge-walk group

Postby railtrailbiker » Wed Nov 24, 2004 6:44 pm

After a long dispute, the Town of Lloyd has agreed to withdraw a lawsuit against Walkway Over the Hudson regarding building code violations.
And the nonprofit group that owns the 6,000-foot Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge has agreed to pay a $250 fine as part the settlement with the town. The town sued the group in the late 1990s after members defied a court order that barred them from using the Lloyd side of the bridge. On that side, the group, under different leadership at the time, constructed buildings without obtaining permission from Lloyd. ''We dropped the lawsuit because they're abiding by the building code,'' Lloyd Supervisor Bob Shepard said. The agreement also stipulates the group must get a building permit for structures in place while it removes part of a shed and a makeshift restroom. ''We do have cooperation with the town,'' said Fred Schaeffer, chairman of Walkway Over the Hudson's board of directors.
