Supervisor's Report April 12, 2016


 This Thursday evening (April 14) is the date for the annual Take Back the Night walk to raise awareness of the very serious issue of domestic violence.  Like all communities, East Greenbush has suffered dearly from the tragedy of domestic violence.  The annual walk is organized by the Family and Friends of Liza Ellen Warner and supported by the family and friends of Nikki Hart.  The loss of these two young women is incalculable to their loved ones and profoundly diminishes the life of the whole community.  The Take Back the Night event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Onderdonk Park and will be followed by a walk around Hampton Manor Lake at 7:00 p.m.  One antidote to the solitary darkness of domestic violence is the solidarity of an entire community determined to come together to bring the issue out into the light. Please come and join us if you can.  Few issues are as important as this one.

 I want to remind you that the public hearing on the sewer rate increase will be held tomorrow (April 13) at 7:00 p.m. at Town Hall.  The details on the proposed increases can be found here on the Town website.  I urge you to attend and be heard on this important subject.

 On April 23rd there will be a Park Clean-Up Day in Hampton Manor Park from 10 a.m. until noon.  Join volunteers from the East Greenbush YMCA, Regeneron, East Greenbush Kiwanis, East Greenbush Rotary Club, East Greenbush Girl Scouts and Town employees for painting, raking, and a general sprucing up of the Park.  One highlight will be the placement of the new Gazebo.  Bring gloves, rakes, and garbage bags to join in this Earth Day activity.

 The Department of Environmental Conservation has stocked the pond at the Town Park with 500 Rainbow Trout. If you like to fish, here’s your chance.
