Troy Mayor On Water Line Replacement, Downtown Development And County Executive Race

Aug 6, 2017

The City of Troy recently replaced a more than century-old water main that ruptured in January of 2016. Before the line was repaired, 8 million gallons spilled into the streets of Lansingburgh, affecting customers in not only Troy but in 9 surrounding communities.

WAMC's Lucas Willard spoke with Troy Mayor Patrick Madden about the work to replace the line and other issues facing city residents, including the development of One Monument Square and the Rensselaer County Executive race between Republicans Chris Meyer, the deputy county executive, and state Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, and Democrat Andrea Smyth.
