Winter Storm Jonas- Preparations for Saturday, January 23rd

The Town’s personnel are prepared and ready to fight the first real storm of the year. While predictions seem to be anywhere from 2-8” for this area, we expect the plows will be out at some point- please remember to keep cars off roads out of harms way of plowing and salting apparatus.

As a reminder, do not push snow into the street or clear off your cars in the street. Also, please clear off any hydrants in front of your home.  

If the storm should cause a power outage at your home or in your neighborhood, contact Con Edison immediately at 1-800-75-CONED to make sure you get into their queue, even if you think your neighbors have already done so. Speaking of your neighbors, please be sure to check on the people around you, especially the elderly, and make sure they are safe and warm too!

The Joseph G. Caputo Community Center at 95 Broadway serves as our community warming center. At this time, the Community Center will be open regular Saturday hours tomorrow (9AM to 10PM), but we will keep you posted if these hours are extended.

We appreciate your cooperation to make sure everyone stays safe!

Supervisor's Update- January 19th, 2016

Thank you to the Ossining community for such a warm welcome into my new role as Town Supervisor. It has been a busy two weeks since my term began, but I wanted to share the speech I gave at the Town's Reorganizational Meeting on Tuesday, January 12th, as well as a link to the video of the Inauguration Ceremony held on January 1st.

I hope both will give you some insight as to where I think our community is headed and how, as Town Supervisor, I believe I can get us there!

 

"Thank you again to the community for supporting me and allowing me to serve and represent you. I am so pleased to work with our newly formed Board, Councilwoman Kim Jeffrey, Councilman Northern Wilcher, Councilwoman Karen D’Attore, and Councilwoman Liz Feldman. As your Town Supervisor, I am excited to be working with you on ways to improve upon all of the good things that are currently happening in the Town, as well as to take a look at some of the challenges and work on turning them into opportunities.

I have spent my first days in office taking stock of what good work the Town has accomplished and what was in the planning or interim stages.  I have been on an informal listening tour with Town departments and department heads to hear from employees of the Town what has been going well, what has been challenging, and soliciting visions, feedback and suggestions for ways to capitalize on their expertise to improve our systems.

I hosted a department heads staff meeting and traveled around our Town offices to meet with the Town Assessor, Tax Receiver, Building Department, Highway Department, Clerk’s Office,  Park’s Department, Senior Nutrition Program, Dale Cemetery, our Planning Consultant, our Environmental Advisory Committee Chair, Village Mayor, Village Manager, Village Engineer who also serves the Town, our Director of Information Technology, our Finance Department, and our Police Liaison.   I also met with or communicated with residents who had ideas, visions and/or concerns.

This week I will be traveling to Albany for Training along with Councilwomen D’Attore and Feldman.  I have also been invited to attend the Governor’s State of the State and budget presentation in Albany as well. As we all know, there will be announcements about some large initiatives, which will most likely include incentives for additional government efficiencies and infrastructure projects and economic development. I am hoping to come back with some action items so we can proceed to develop a plan , together, which will best serve our community for many years to come. 

Please feel free to reach out to me by email or phone, the website is townofossining.com, and my email is listed there as well as our phone number, 914-762-6001. 

Finally, there are some public meetings coming up which might be of interest including the Town Planning Board meeting scheduled for January 20th at 7:30pm at the Operations Center.  Our First Town Hall Meeting is Tuesday, February 2nd at the Library, at 7:30pm, topic to be announced.

Other upcoming events include the Cooperative Scholarship Fund of Ossining is hosting their annual Martin Luther King Jr. fundraiser this Saturday, January 16th at 3pm in the Ossining High School Auditorium followed by a delicious meal.  On Monday, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I encourage everyone to volunteer for our national day of service, in honor of this great leader who carried with him for all of us a message of peace.  Go to www.volunteernewyork.org and pick the type of service you would like, and you can find organizations to match. Some are over the weekend, so you may want to figure that out soon.  Please do participate, and participate in government by communicating with me and with our board about how we can best serve you."

 

Please call or email me with any questions, concerns or compliments at (914) 762-6001 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I look forward to working with all of you!
