9/19/23 Board Reports
Department of Public Works (DPW)
I would like to thank DPW for their efforts in preparing our Village’s two 9/11 Ceremonies. Without their behind-the-scenes work, we would not have such beautiful remembrances. I would also like to thank Village Clerk Susan Walsh for all she does to make sure our Remembrance is flawless.
The Highway Department has been sweeping and maintaining all Village roads, with potholes being filled, and faded street signs in various locations being replaced. Crews have repaired a damaged pathway in Centennial Gardens. The Parks Department maintained and weeded all Village parks, pocket parks, parking lots and all commercial areas.
The Sanitation Department has collected 70 tons of household waste, as well as 10 tons of paper, 7 tons of comingled plastics, and 15 tons of bulk rubbish. Our mechanics have been hard at work preparing our machinery for the leaf season along with general repairs and maintenance of all DPW and police department vehicles. The Maintenance Department cleaned and maintained all Village buildings and began hanging brackets and banners of our wonderful Veterans for display around the Village. Take a moment to really look at the banners…they are beautiful and a wonderful way to pay tribute to our Veterans.
Four Village Studio (4VS)
This week the 4 Village Studio will feature various shows, such as: Author Corner with Stephanie Larkin presenting Deborah Burns and “The 7 Days – A Classic Nursery Rhyme Made New”; Wes Houston Presents, Wes presents Bryan Gallo, singer, songwriter, & artist; Uncorked with Rex Whicker – Mr. Whicker pairs his family’s automobiles with deserving wines; FPFD – Red Alert with Larry King, AEMT featuring Tenitris McInnis, Special Agent presenting “Federal Law Enforcement and the Fire Service; and lastly A Flashback of the Antique Road Test which was recorded in 2016.
The main line work originally planned for last weekend was cancelled due to an MTA manpower issue. We expect work on the main line this coming weekend as well as the weekend of 9/30. The Village Board and Village Administrator Gerry Bambrick are working diligently to come to an agreement with the MTA regarding our outstanding issues with our 3rd Track MOU.
