It is hard to believe we are at the end of another week-- 2018 has been a whirlwind! I want to start off with some bittersweet news-- today was the last Friday at work for our Town Highway Foreman John Martin and Town Highway MEO/ Senior Man Rick Planamenta. You may recall that two weeks ago today, we were headed to their combined retirement party at The Briar's, where the Town Board gave them proclamations and recognized them with some kind words about their combined nearly 50 years of service to the Unincorporated Town.
The Teamsters were also there to send these guys off in style, and we had a great time together.
Both Rick and John grew up in Ossining and live locally, so we know they will be nearby. Make sure you congratulate them on a job well done if you see them around! Their last day will be Tuesday the 30th and, poetically, we are expecting a snowstorm on that day.
With the departure of these guys, we have an opening coming up in our Highway Department-- if you take a look at the Town's Homepage, you can see the details of the position and what is expected of applicants. We will be accepting applications through close of business on Friday, February 2nd.
