As a matter of fact Shelburn was part of the Community Development Block Grant or Home Investment Partnerships Program. Here you find out how to obtain more information regarding these funds.

you act as if every kid in town, other than your own, run the streets at all hours. we may have a few bad apples, but so does every town. for the most part the youth of our town are great kids.
I was no way insinuating my kids were the only good kids, as with any, my children have their faults. Have you ever walked the streets of Shelburn past 9 p.m. on a weeknight? There are way too many kids walking these streets, the majority of them up to no good. I agree with you every town has bad apples. For the most part the younger children are great kids, I'm talking about the teens that vandalize peoples property, and the city's property. For instance, the city park. Many people have no idea how much money and time is invested into that small park so that our children have a place to play basketball, or play on swings, or even have a family cookout. Every time there is something new added too the park, these teenagers go and tear it up. The sad thing about the whole situation is, the younger children are observing this and seeing that nothing is being done about it, so they assume it alright. There are tons of kids (older and younger)in this town that have no respect for anyone, nor themselves,or anyone's property and we have no one else to blame except the parents that don't give 2 cents what their children are doing, because their too busy to take of their children or too busy dealing with their own personal addictions or habits. I personally don't mind the part of Shelburn I live in, there are good people all the way around me, but no matter which way you turn there is trashy homes and yards. I think this town could do a lot more to clean it up. We do have ordinances in tact, but you have to have a town council and town deputy that is willing to enforce it and that's where the problems come in. I do realize that there are families that struggle to make a living, and can't afford to have a new home or a new car, but how hard is it to maintain a clean yard. I moved to Shelburn because I could afford to live here, it was better than paying rent every month.

linda dear, you really should learn how to spell before posting things for the public to read. you really should try proof reading before posting. you don't make a lot of sense. the town gets rid of employees who actually work not only on the clock, but off the clock also. what does your husband do that he doesn't get paid for? is he on the park board? does he help with anything that's on a volunteer basis? i know, i bet he'll plan clean up day this year for old fashioned days, right? heck he couldn't even pass the test to run the sewer plant. how hard can a sh*t test be? you can run off at the mouth, but lets see you get out here and start helping to better our town. heck maybe you could just clean up your own yard over there on trailer trash road. since you speak of not talking until you have walked in someone else's shoes, does that mean we will see you on the park board and helping out with clean up day and volunteering for other things around town? good christians just kill me.

Yes, I've been out and about after 9pm many, many nights. I was born and raised in this town and happen to love it. Outsiders like you should stay away if you think so poorly of our town. Every town and city in the world has both nice and trashy homes. It just happens that in little towns the trashy ones aren't as few and far between as they are in bigger towns and cities. You make it sound as if you live in a ritzy neighborhood and if you happen to go to the wrong part of town you'll be stabbed, shot, raped, or killed. Be careful, those teenagers are notorious for that. These kids are not bad kids, they just need love and guidance. I know most everyone of these kids. There are only a few that are actually out destroying things. Just because a kid is out after dark doesn't make them a criminal that's destroying the town. If you're so worried why don't you form a neighborhood watch that takes turns making your rounds checking on the park and town. You can complain about, so get up and help stop it. Our town marshall is a good guy. He's always been there for me when I've called him. As a matter of fact, he has gone out of his way for me. Do you personally know him? If not, go introduce yourself and get to know him. Then give me your opinion on him. Have you ever thought of trying to meet some of these troubled youths you speak of? Maybe even mentor them. Help them learn to become good people. If they have no one who cares, they won't care either, Then they will become lost youths. You are blaming everyone else, but you are part of the problem also if you see kids who need help and you choose not to help. Children are everyones responsibilty, not just their parents and the police. You are quick to point your finger and blame everyone else for all the problems around here. You are just as guilty if you know of some troubled youth you don't at least try to reach out to, or maybe you could go offer to help some of these "trashy" people, as you call them, clean their yards. Form a neighborhood or town watch group, see if a local church will allow you to use it's facilites to do something to get these horrible teenagers off the streets and help them. I'm just so mad that you speak so badly of these kids. I try to help as many out as i can. Guess what, they appreciate it. I'm only one person though. What have you done other than look down on these kids and this town? My guess would be that you are a hipocrit church goer that is suppose to love everyone, but you actually only care about those that you believe are equal to you. Well my dear everyones equal no matter what they do, who they are, their skin color, whether they live in a nice home, or a trashy one, whether they be clean or dirty, rich or poor. People like you are a big part of Americas problem. You think you're better because you live in the good part of shelburn. Well honey shelburn is shelburn. If you live here you're either one of us or in the wrong town. Your kids are better because they are not out after dark. That's very wrong. The kids you see out just need some love and guidance. I can assure you they are all good kids. You act as if they are beating the elderly, raping the women and children and burning down the town. Lady you are pathetic. Sorry you had to settle for Shelburn. That must mean you have Champagne taste and a budweiser budget. Get over yourself.

Resident of shelburn you are right about one thing.
Shelburn did get a housing grant like you said, BUT it was also back in 2001 and it went to 11 different families for a total of $250,000.00. I happen to know most of them personaly and seen the work. If you would have checked into that site a little bit more you would have seen that and might not look like a total fool on this forem right now. So please do us all a favor and refrain from posting any more B.S. until you have all the facts thank you!

what i heard from several of the homeowners is that the work on their homes was started, but never completed. why is that? did the contractors doing the jobs not get paid? i have no idea, but somethings wrong with the picture. before you tell others that they look like a fool, maybe you should learn to spell....just a suggestion. wouldn't want to be calling people fools if i looked like one myself.

seems as if everyone runs off when people know who they are or call them out on things. thats part of the reason this town is in the shape its in. if more people would step up to the plate radther than just sit around and run their mouths and bitch we may get things changed for the better. i guess it's easier for them to just sit on their butts and complain. if you don't put forth your best effort to help change the things you bitch about, then you absolutely have no right at all to bitch. get off your bitchy asses and get involved in helping to change our town. show some love and pride instead of greed and hatred. oh, and some of you need to take a look in the mirror at your own hipocritical selves and quit judging others. only god can judge me or anyone else, and i damn sure know none of you are even close to being god. satan maybe, but not god.

We have a crazy system going on around this town. We pay for things we don't get, we never know when they'll have a board meeting, the town keeps child molestors and idiots, but fire those who actually know what they are doing. Then some how a man who makes very little working for a small town builds a $500,000 home. Hmmmm..... Then the town board president hires his wife to sit at the water office and keep Alice Ann company. Why on earth do they need two people working there all of a sudden? My water bill has gone up $20 dollars over the last three years. This is crazy. Then I pay for a storm water project that does not even work. Most of the town stays as flooded as it ever did. It's terrible that the town can screw us any way they want. I'm sick of it, but I've tried talking to the village idiots with no luck. We need change!!!!!!!

Guess you heard wrong. They were arrested in Shelburn. One was from New Lebanon, and the other was from Sullivan. Try getting your facts straight before making yourself look stupid.

yes i suppose your wright they care.
How much more money they can make and how they can take more from the little person. Easy for you to say is your water bill 200.00 a month. Are you paying back the grant that shelburn received,no. Which has not help the town people. look up what a grant is.
As for the lamb kid everyone makes mistakes. as far as i can see all the bashing is nessasary the town is falling apart and i think most all board members need to be replace,start fresh. New people bring new ideas and prob change.
