RAY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - With a winter storm approaching, the state Adirondack Park Agency has postponed a public hearing on plans to restore two Adirondack fire towers.

Wednesday’s hearing has been rescheduled for April 2 at 6 p.m. at Adirondack Park Agency headquarters in Ray Brook.

The fire towers are on Hurricane Mountain near Keene and Saint Regis Mountain near Saranac Lake. Plans call for maintenance of the steel structures in compliance with the State Historic Preservation Act. New signs will be installed in and around the towers to tell the history of fire towers used by forest rangers in the Adirondacks.

The Department of Environmental Conservation will inspect the structures and do any needed repairs. Full access is planned for both towers.
