Clerk's Corner The latest updates and news from the Village Clerk
From the Mayor: On July 19th local scouts, parents and village, town and county representative will be volunteering their time to help clean our streams of debris and overgrowth. Residents are encouraged to participate and/or provide water or snacks to the volunteers. We are aggressively pursuing a more comprehensive solution to the groundwater issues but every effort helps and ultimately benefits our residents. Please mark this date on your calendar and come out in any way you can to support these scouts and their leaders who give up their time and energy on what will likely be a hot July day. Please also take a moment to thank John Kennedy for having his office coordinate this project which was very successful last year.
