Schenectady County manager extends housing state of emergency

A state of emergency is being extended in Schenectady County, as concerns about the housing crisis there continue.

We’ve reported on the dozens of migrant families now living at the Super 8 motel in Rotterdam – which prompted Schenectady County manager, Rory Fluman to issue a state of emergency order, back on July 24.
He said residents of the motel were “illegally removed,” to make way for migrants.
The order, signed again Friday, is now scheduled to remain in place for another 5 days.
