BALLSTON – The Town of Ballston has reached a contract agreement with Teamsters Local 294, the bargaining unit representing the Town’s 11 Highway Department employees.
Under the terms of the new three-year contract, the Town has agreed to a two-percent annual raise, and the parties agreed to new terms regarding compensatory time.

It helps keep costs under control for the next three years.”
