Town of East Greenbush
“Go confidently in the direction of your DREAMS. Live the life you’ve imagined.”
With local high school students scheduled to celebrate the achievement of their success, I would like to congratulate all students who are graduating this weekend. This is an accomplishment that will allow for a future of possibilities. To local college students who have graduated in the past month, and to all of our community members moving up this year, congratulations. You are the future, and from everyone at Town Hall, we wish you the best of luck.
On June 4, 2014, the Town held the Spotlight on Youth awards ceremony for youth in our community. Award recipients are nominated by a teacher or administrator for their hard work, dedication and for what they contribute to the community. This year we had a great group of students that we presented awards to. Congratulations and best of luck to each of you, keep up the hard work.
I would also like to acknowledge Officer Dan Keegan on his retirement from the Town of East Greenbush. As a member of the East Greenbush Police Department since 1991, we are grateful for your hard work and dedication throughout the years. You will be missed among the ranks, best of luck in your future endeavors.
Each month I try to keep everyone up to date on projects in our community. Currently, the biggest project that we have going on in Town is the Waste Water Treatment Plant project. This project is currently in progress and we continue to remain on track with Phase 1. To see more on this project please check our monthly update (Link). For residents in the Prospect Heights neighborhood, you should have already received a notice regarding the Slip Lining project taking place in your area over the next seven weeks. This work, along with the WWTP project will help the Town move on from any issues we have experienced in the past.
If you have driven past the old KFC or the old Planet Fitness location you may have noticed some renovations or work being done. Starbucks, which is under construction in the old KFC building, and Peebles in the old Planet Fitness location are both currently under construction and we hope to see them opened by this fall.
With summer here, I would like to remind everyone to be cautious with the heat and humidity. Be mindful of your pets and elderly neighbors. Teach your children the importance of water safety and the rules of the pool. We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable summer. The start of summer also means the start of our summer camp program. I would like to thank Jessica Lansing, and her staff, for their hard work in organizing the summer camp program. It looks like the youth attending the program will have an enjoyable summer with all the activities planned!
