It is with deep regret that we report the sudden passing of our fellow Town colleague and Ossining native Cheryl Timmons who has been our Assessment Clerk since 1988. Her passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts and in the Town Assessment Office as Cheryl devoted her life to making sure that Ossining residents, especially our seniors, received the highest level of service that one could possibly give. Her smile and infectious laugh will be dearly missed by all who knew her. 

Wake service will be on Monday 2/27/23 from  5 PM to 8 PM at Clinton Funeral Home, 21 Parrot ST, Cold Springs, NY 10516.

 The Funeral Service will take place on Tuesday 2/28/23 at 10 AM at Our Lady of Loretto, 24 Fair ST, Cold Springs, NY 10516.

In lieu of sending flowers, the family requests donations to the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in Beacon, NY. Cheryl was well known for her love of animals and had a special place in her heart for ARF. More information about the foundation can be found here: 

**The Tax Receiver's and Assessor’s Office will open at 1 PM on Tuesday 2/28/23 as staff will be at the funeral service for Cheryl.**   

Updates from the Supervisor’s Office

Please keep an eye on the weather early next week as winter weather may finally be arriving in our region.

Early this week, Town staff and Council Members attended the Annual Association of Towns Meeting in NYC. We were able to learn about many policy updates and grant opportunities for towns in New York State as well as opportunities to collaborate with other municipalities about issues common to all of us. It was also a great opportunity to meet up with our fellow municipal colleagues, many of which we have not seen since the COVID pandemic started.


Please note that it is Petition Season for candidates to get on the ballot for the 2023 Election Season. District leaders will be circulating throughout the community collecting signatures.
