And with I-84 and New York Route 17 both running through Wallkill, the town makes tens of thousands of dollars in fines yearly that are applied to the town budget.</p><p> Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:04:39 +0000 Hank Gross 56389 at http://wamc.org Town supervisor concerned with potential state budget impact on local courts
