Supervisor's Update- September 28th, 2018

It's hard to believe we are headed into October-- where does the time go? It feels like just yesterday we were getting ready for last weekend's many events. But now, with another week under our belts, check out all the excitement from last weekend.

 

On Sunday, I headed over to Fable Farm on Route 134 for the Farm Fest event, and I was in good company-- the place was packed! There was something to do for the whole family, with all kinds of artisans, food vendors, and music. You could also grab a ride around the farm with Tony and Mike if you wanted to let someone else do the walking for a while.

 

Although the skies looked a little foreboding at times, we stayed dry and enjoyed checking out all the local vendors (including our friend Keith Gordon of CLAC fame, who was selling his pottery). I even shared a pizza from the Hudson Oven Pizza Truck-- it was the perfect snack to hold me over until dinner.

Supervisor's Update- September 21st, 2018

Today was a fun day in Ossining as we celebrated Car Free Day with our neighbors throughout the Hudson Valley. Did you notice less traffic on the road than usual? How about more folks taking the bus, or riding their bikes? You may have seen me out there riding to work this morning, and many others using Lime Bikes, a company who has been piloting the use of these rental bikes thoughout our community all week. You may have even seen some of Ossining's finest out there showing us how it's done.

 

We are still navigating some unchartered territory with the United States Postal Service, since we have been hearing from quite a few folks that they did not receive their 2018/2019 school tax bill, which was mailed on August 21st. Our Receiver, Holly Perlowitz, and staff Patti and Martha, have been doing an exemplary job of helping folks who need their bills re-printed, and I want to thank them wholeheartedly for stepping up for our taxpayers.

 

 

Holly will be posting the following document around Town in both English and Spanish. We are trying to reach as many folks as possible-- if you have any ideas, please let us know!

Supervisor's Update - September 14th, 2018

I would like to begin with a message from our Receiver of Taxes, Holly Perlowitz.  Please share this message with your neighbors, especially those that may not use e-mail, so we can spread the word as best as possible:

 

2018/2019 School Taxes are due on September 30, 2018.  September 30th is a Sunday, so payments can be received in our office through Monday, October 1st without penalty AND those mailed with a USPS postmark as of October 1st will also be accepted without penalty.

Bills were mailed to our taxpayers (who pay their taxes directly vs. through a mortgage company) from our printer on August 21st.  The vast majority of taxpayers received their bills, but we have been getting some calls from other taxpayers who did not receive their bills.  The Tax Office can e-mail a duplicate to any taxpayer who has not received a bill. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR TAX BILL please contact the office by sending an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling 914-762-8790.

NYS Tax Law states that penalties must be assessed if payments are not received on time for whatever reason, even if the taxpayer does not receive their bill in the mail.  As we have discovered this tax season, municipalities cannot control the mail and property owners are expected to know when taxes are due.  Unfortunately, municipalities have no authority to waive any penalties assessed – so please make sure to pay your taxes by the date they are due!

We have been actively working with the USPS to identify the problem that has caused non-delivery of bills and have notified Senator Schumer’s office regarding these mail issues as well, so you should know they are being aggressively investigated.

 

I would like to thank Tax Receiver Perlowitz and her staff, Deputy Receiver Patti Cunningham and Martha Quitisaca for their due diligence on behalf of our taxpayers and for always providing excellent customer service in the Tax Office!

 

The Town Board will be meeting on MONDAY this coming week (September 17th) at 16 Croton Avenue for a work session.  Following this week's public hearings on current local laws being discussed, the agenda for the work session will include discussions on possible revisions to the two of the three local laws currently under consideration  --    pdf Leaf Blowers (30 KB)  and pdf Accessory Apartments (148 KB) .  The  pdf Solar Codes (244 KB)  local law will not be discussed at this work session, due to some scheduling conflicts with our Town Planner, David Stolman.  Although work sessions are not an opportunity for the public to weigh in, I hope you will tune in to follow the Town Board's careful consideration of public comment we have received thus far.  The public hearings on all three local laws will continue at the next legislative session.  If you have comments you would like to submit to the Town Board in the meantime, including related to the Solar Code legislation, please e-mail them to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Supervisor's Update- September 7th, 2018

We have a very exciting evening ahead of us! The Town will be concluding our 2018 Summer Concert Series with a DJ Dance Party at the Ossining Waterfront. Ossining's own DJCatch1 will be spinning some tunes for us on this cooler (and thank goodness, drier) rescheduled date. The dance party will begin at 6:30PM and go until about 8:30PM, so be sure to join us down at Engel Park. We may have some surprises in store, so keep your eyes peeled! Also, (although you will probably not be sitting down much), we have two new food trucks coming to Ossining today, in case you'd like to grab dinner. Sloppie Joe's and Spicy Restaurant (famous for their green-sauced wings) will be there to serve you and give you energy enough to dance the night away!

 

We will also be hosting a very special Mind, Body. Spirit Ossining event at 5:15PM-- Rebel Yoga Studios founder Tasia Sabatino will be guiding her signature "Rebel Flow" right at Engel Park. Be sure to bring your own mat and water for this funky Vinyasa-style yoga class, and this one's on us!

Supervisor's Update- August 31st, 2018

Another wet start to the weekend here in Ossining, but never fear-- it looks like the skies will be clear (if cloudy) for tonight's concert at the Waterfront. We will start at 7PM with a performance from Ossining's own Culture Hound, followed by the Old Mill Singers performing at 8PM. We will also have our friends from Gyro Uno and Three Little Pigs food trucks down at Engel Park, along with the Homespun Merry-Go Round, so enjoy one of the last summer concerts with us tonight.

 

 

This was scheduled to be the final show in our series, but you may remember that we had a pretty brutal rainout a few weeks back. We are excited to celebrate the first week in September with a rescheduled DJ dance party at the waterfront NEXT Friday, September 7th, where Ossining's DJCatch1 (you may know him as Hopeton Lemon) will be keeping us on our feet from 6:30PM until...? Come shake off the first week back in your Fall routine with us! Gyro Uno, along with the Three Little Pigs Pizza Truck, will be there to help you carbo load and keep that energy up!

 

Before the dance party, join us for a very special Mind, Body, Spirit Ossining program-- Rebel Yoga Studios founder Tasia Sabatino will be leading her signature "Rebel Flow" class down at Engel Park beginning at 5:15PM. This free class is open to yogis of all levels and will get you feeling light and limber heading into your weekend. Bring your own mat, along with a bottle of water-- a sweat towel wouldn't be a bad idea either!
