Dear Village Residents,
In an effort to improve Fire Safety in the village and to prevent the unfortunate scenarios and tragedies that were of the past two residential fires in the village, we have initiated in affiliation with the American Red Cross a Special Fire Safety Training and Smoke Detector program.
Upon registering for this very important program, the Red Cross will schedule a visit to your residence and will provide essential fire safety training and important and useful techniques to utilize during the event of a fire, which can save lives and help you and your loved ones avoid tremendous monetary and property damage.
The Red Cross will also provide Smoke Detectors and assist you with the installation free of charge!
To register to the Fire Safety Program please click on the link below, or call the Village Hall at 845.782.2600 and ask to be registered to the program.
We have to be vigilant and do everything in our capacity to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all residents as the old adage says: An ounce of protection is better than a pound of cure!

Summer Road Work
Curbing is underway on Sears Road as we prepare to re-pave Sears Road, Green Road, Michael Court, and Galveston Drive. We have been planning this project for over a year and have carefully budgeted and funded this undertaking. Large projects like this do not happen overnight— so much goes on behind the scenes before ground is broken. Thank you to our engineers and financial advisors for making this happen! (more…)
