Tedisco, Walsh Pass New Legislation to Allow County DA’s Office to Hire Beyond Saratoga County; B-Spa To Milton Conservation Easement Land Transfer

BALLSTON SPA— Sen. Jim Tedisco (R,C-Ballston Lake) and Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C-Ballston) this week announced new legislation that they sponsored had final passage in both houses of the legislature.

The first bill waives the Saratoga County residency requirement for Assistant District Attorney positions in Saratoga County, the idea being to expand the pool of eligible applicants for the position. The legislation allows those who reside in adjoining counties to Saratoga the opportunity to apply for the job. 

“We need to support our district attorneys and ensure they have the tools they need to recruit and retain the best and brightest prosecutors to serve residents in Saratoga County and protect our communities. That’s why this legislation is so important,” Sen. Tedisco said in a statement. The exemption does not apply to the office of first assistant district attorney or chief assistant district attorney. 

The second bill sponsored and passed by Tedisco and Walsh is for a conservation easement land transfer of the Woods Hollow Nature Preserve from the Village of Ballston Spa to the Town of Milton., with the Woods Hollow Nature Preserve to continue to remain protected and forever undeveloped, and the land to now be owned by the Town of Milton.

“The sale is critical to the future of Woods Hollow, as it will require the addition of a conservation easement that will ensure it remains forever undeveloped, and it makes future maintenance of the large parcel more certain as it is likely to be better maintained by the Town in which it resides moving forward,” Ballston Spa Mayor Frank Rossi, Jr. said in a statement. 

Both bills now move to the governor’s desk for review.
