Very exciting news from the Town and Village of Ossining...
We have added to the extensive list of shared services between the Town of Ossining and the Village of Ossining.
We continue to enjoy shared service with Briarcliff Manor for Fire Service for some of area of the Unincorporated portion of the Town of Ossining.
We will save $250 per month for engineering administration as well as benefit from Paul's knowledge concerning reports that must be submitted, his expertise in getting projects completed in a cost effective, quality and timely manner.
Another advantage to using Paul Fraioli compared to an outside consultant is the institutional knowledge of Ossining that he can provide.
We believe we will save money during this 2012 year by being pro-active as we go through the list of issues that exist in the Town's infrastructure. We cannot predict what monies will be saved until we review the infrastructure projects and see what the engineering costs will be to develop the projects as well as the implementation and successful completion.
We have interviewed some outstanding engineering firm and will be contacting one to use for Planning Board items and will continue our relationship with F.P. Clark for planning needs.
Looking forward to an exciting 8 months... and beyond if everything works out as predicted.

Town & Village of Ossining Announce New Intermunicipal Agreement for Engineering Services
(May 7, 2012) The Town and Village of Ossining announced today that they will enter into a new Intermunicipal Agreement under which the Village of Ossining would provide engineering and related services to the Town, initially for calendar year 2012.
The Town of Ossining has traditionally hired a private-sector engineering firm to supply planning and design services and oversight for major infrastructure projects, as well as consulting on day-to-day work within the Town. Under the proposed IMA, Village Engineer Paul Fraioli will administer these services for the Town, and all solicitation for projects will be coordinated through the Village Engineer’s Office.
The Agreement will also make provision for the Village to provide basic contractual oversight and implementation similar to that currently provided the Village. The Town is also considering an engineering consultant to provide consulting services to the Planning Board, as needed.
This agreement represents an additional example of intermunicipal cooperation and resource sharing which will result in improved services while reducing costs for all residents.
