Hunter Youth Commission

In January 2018, a small group of community members met at the Mountain Top Library. Mr. Nate Jones, a community member discussed a vision to establish a non for profit youth forum on the mountain top. He elaborated on the need to provide additional physical activities for the school age students, such as, but not limited to: soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming lessons, youth sport camps, skiing/snowboarding etc.

At the closure of the meeting, the group in attendance decided that we need to construct a steering committee. The steering committee of approximately 8-12 community members would begin the processes of establishing a youth commission. We are looking for dedicated community members who are team oriented to help this process.

* The steering committee is not the actual Youth Commission. The steering committee would complete all the legwork/logistics to make this happen.

If you are interested, please contact Nate Jones via email at email hidden; JavaScript is required. All who are interested will be asked to fill out an application. If selected: a background check via Greene County Sheriff’s office will take place.

Thank you!

Humane Treatment of Dogs / Town of Hunter Tether Law

The New York State Department of Agricultural & Markets (Ag & Markets) regulates the treatment of animals, including pets. Although Ag & Markets law require that a dog owner provide adequate food, water, shelter and veterinary care, the law is sometimes interpreted in a manner that does not protect a dog that is kept in poor and/or dangerous conditions from harm.

In 2015 the Town of Hunter adopted a law that requires humane treatment of dogs that are tethered outside. Please become familiar with the law, posted below. It is important that dogs be protected during the summer heat and humidity, and also during the winter, when snow, wind and frigid temperatures can cause not only discomfort but severe injury and/or death to a dog.

If you have reason to believe a dog is being neglected, mistreated or abused in the Town of Hunter, please contact the Town of Hunter Police, the Greene County Sheriff, the New York State Police, or the Columbia Greene Humane Society.
