Joint boards discuss Somerset's newest park preserve
It is official: The site of the old Somerset landfill is now called "Parnell Prairie Preserve." The name was announced at the joint town and village of Somerset meeting last week.
"We decided not to put 'park' in the name because then people will think of ballparks," said Lenny Germain, town supervisor and member of the preserve committee. "Parnell" refers to the family who originally owned the 50-acre parcel.
