* Queensbury Town Board, Monday evening
* The board unanimously approved a local law banning the use of lawn fertilizer within 50 feet of the shoreline of Lake George and requiring any lawn fertilizer used between 50 and 200 feet of shorelines to be phosphorous-free. Representatives of the Fund for Lake George and the Lake George Association spoke in support of the law and suggested even more stringent regulations.
