Supervisor’s Message – May 26, 2016

 On Saturday (May 28), the Memorial Day Parade will start at 10:00 a.m.  The parade will take off from East Greenbush Bowling Center and end at VFW Post 7338 on Hays Road.  Memorial Day is a day for honoring and remembering those who gave their lives in service to our country.  It is a tradition that began in 1868 as Decoration Day when a group of Civil War veterans decided to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers.  The East Greenbush parade is an exciting event featuring the participation of numerous civic and community groups and, of course, the many residents who come out to join in the festivities and help commemorate our nation’s greatest heroes.

 The second meeting on the quality of water in Hampton Manor was held this week.  There’s a link below for Manor residents to complete the survey designed to gauge the nature and extent of water problems and ascertain opinions on the best way to move forward.  If you live in the Hampton Manor Water District, please take a few minutes to complete the survey.

We’re currently engaged in a significant revision of the Town’s Zoning Ordinance and Building Code to strengthen our ability to effectively enforce Town regulations and begin the process of cleaning up derelict properties, reducing the number of illegal signs, and ensuring that property owners comply with ordinances that emphasize the importance of maintaining the aesthetic appeal of our neighborhoods and commercial zones.

 The Town Board is preparing a major new initiative aimed at revitalizing Columbia Turnpike.  This Rapid Action Plan will include incentives for redevelopment and a strong program of code enforcement.  We will be contacting home and business owners on 9 & 20 to inform them that their properties will be inspected and code violations will not be tolerated.  Next week the old Weathervane building will be demolished, thus marking the beginning of a new program for improving the commercial and visual appeal of our Main Street.  I want to thank the owners of the Weathervane property for their cooperation and civic-mindedness.

 Two Town Hall legends – Tim Boel and Joe Cherubino – retired this month after more than 34 years each working for the people of East Greenbush.  Thanks Tim and Joe.  We wish them both good health and great fortune in their retirements.
