As promised, we will start sending out updates more frequently because of the time sensitivity of some of our current projects. The Town Board takes their job very seriously, and truly believes that we must think in terms of business and not personal feelings when controversial topics come before us. We also understand that as elected officials, our role is to take into consideration all consequences (positive and negative) to all parties in every situation. We also understand that we are responsible and elected by the entire Town of Ossining to limit their liability and keep them safe.
The Town Board will not tolerate verbal nor written abuse of the staff of the Town, our consultants or anyone who contracts with the Town or serves on a voluntary basis. If anyone has an issue or has proof of an incident or wrong doing of any person associated with the Town, please submit it to the Supervisor’s office with the appropriate proof and we will take the appropriate action, including but not limited to presenting the case to the Town Board of Ethics.
Also, our families did not choose to be elected officials nor take on the responsibilities of any office within this community. It is inappropriate and immoral to attack them with judgment, hearsay or criticism based on our actions as elected officials.
Don’t forget about our:
Town Hall Meeting

Ossining Public Library
Next Town Hall Meeting: Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

I apologize for (yet another!) lengthy update, but we have so much to share! The Town Board believes that having facts available to you on every issue is crucial to the operation of a functioning government, and while you may not have the time to read the whole update at once, we encourage you to save it and refer back to it should questions arise at a later date.
Town Hall Meeting Recap: Tuesday, July 16th, 2013
We covered a wide range of topics at the Town Hall meeting this past Tuesday, from an update on the SRO at the Middle School to a discussion on our population of coyotes; we discussed our infrastructure issues and shared updates on their progress, examined the Town’s finances for the first half of 2013, and even covered some new concepts and ideas for the future of Louis Engel Waterfront Park. As we’ve spoken about in prior meetings, we know more storms are coming, and we need to prepare for them in every way possible, including taking every step to improve the stability and safety of our buildings.
“People underestimate their capacity for change. There is never a right time to do a difficult thing. A leader’s job is to help people have vision of their potential.” -John Porter
There is so much going on here in the Town of Ossining that the time flies by, and my need to update you on our progress becomes something like an obsession. I hope this breakdown of issues, opportunities and accomplishments brings us up to date!
And, don’t forget to join us for the Town Hall meeting this coming Tuesday night (October 1st) at 7:30PM, at the Ossining Public Library. These are your meetings, but below are just some of the items we’re working on that may be discussed!
