From the Mayor's Desk
The job the DPW and staff did clearing our roads was a net positive this year but unfortunately, we have been informed by several homeowners that plowing may have caused minor property damage – primarily stonework and mail boxes. If we can confirm said damage occurred, the Village will cover the costs. Because the Board of Trustees is concerned with the safety of our DPW employees, residents, and property, we will track the work requirements of the employees tasked with snow removal. I will introduce a Resolution this evening for Board review, requiring for the first time, a detailed Daily Drivers’ Log to be kept by Mr. Voss, DPW Supervisor.
The continued public hearings on Introductory Local Law D1-2018 (short term rentals) and Introductory Local Law D2-2018 (non-utility pole devices) held on 3/21/12018 were closed. There will be a 15-day period after the close of these public hearings to allow for written submissions from residents. Deadline date for submission is 4/5/2018. No vote is currently scheduled on either Local Law.
Our Budget analysis for 2018-2019 is underway. There is a line item this year that could substantially increase our property taxes (Milfoil management). That said, the proposed budget will be available to you in the near future, followed by a Public Hearing. In advance, we are happy to discuss our general approach. At your request I can touch on it this evening.
I hope you will attend.
