Column: More August projects and changes

As is my custom, this will be my last column until post-Labor Day. Given the time frame, I think it is apropos to highlight village projects and improvement activities that will be taking place within the coming weeks—or in essence, what to expect to see in the village upon your summer return. Village government goes […]

Column: Support local businesses and be mindful

At the Village Board of Trustees meeting in July, the trustees and I adopted zoning and parking changes with the goal of increasing local shopping, services and dining traffic. On the zoning front, we have updated a process to streamline the course of opening a business in the village. In addition, we expanded the types […]

Column: The history behind the Fourth of July

The recent holiday weekend prompted me to reread the Declaration of Independence. Its true brilliance and timeless nature never ceases to fill me with awe and pride. Many communities have a public reading of the document at some point over the holiday weekend. I believe this tradition is something worth pursuing for our village. The […]

Column: March with us on Memorial Day

At this year’s—our 95th annual Memorial Day Parade, we are reviving a tradition of asking our village veterans to march with us. The village has no organized veterans associations, unlike the American Legion Post and VFW in neighboring Eastchester, whose members have long joined us in our parade. We hope this year to combine forces […]

Column: What your DPW does for you

The beautiful stretch of spring weather serves as a perfect backdrop for our beautifully flowering village. It is only fitting then that I write about the functions of our Department of Public Works which is greatly responsible for the care and quality of this village streetscape. Just 17 strong plus a foreman, (down from a […]
