Francois Weigel was honored by Rhinebeck Village Mayor Heath Tortarella and the village board Aug. 12 for his 40 years of service on the Zoning Board of Appeals, 37 as chairman. “This has been an easy job because I’ve got such a great board,” said Weigel, noting the board members’ dedication to the village. He also had special praise for the hard work of Planning and Zoning Clerk Karen Macfarlane. Weigel stepped down from his post in July. ZBA member Allan Dekrey has been appointed interim chair.
With spring around the corner, village representatives are meeting to discuss outdoor dining options once again.
