MONROE - Dozens of protesters worried about the Village of Kiryas Joel’s proposed land deal attended a rally in Monroe Sunday afternoon.

The group picketed for several hours today at the intersection of Route 17M and Still Road.

They are fighting against a request made by the Hasidic community to take over 500 acres of land from Monroe.

They say the request, if approved, will impact taxes, water and traffic.

The land that would be moved inside Kiryas Joel's borders has a total assessed value of $9.2 million, less than 2 percent of the town's total property value.
