Another busy week in the Town of Ossining: the 3rd floor of 16 Croton is in the process of creating the 2016 Town/County tax bills, our Parks staff is hard at work finishing up the Shinehouse at Cedar Lane Park, and all of our departments are shifting into Spring mode.
The Village of Ossining hosted us for their first official "Lunch and Learn" program this Wednesday, where the topic was Managing the Work/ Life Balance. It was great to see so many of our employees taking time to learn about how they can better balance their roles as mothers and fathers, parents, children, students, and friends with the growing pressures of work, and the presenter had some wonderful ideas of how to take better care of ourselves. We are all looking forward to the Lunch and Learn next month, as well as the other components of this wonderful Employee Wellness program.
We spent some time on Thursday working with our project managers from MUNIS, the new accounting software package that the Town and Village will be moving to later this year. It is exciting to see how many of our processes will become easier with this new software, and how much more accessible our data will be to the public once we get up and running. We are aiming for a launch date this Fall, stay tuned for more details as we get closer.
I want to take the chance to invite everyone to our second Town Hall Meeting of 2016, which will take place in the Budarz Theater at the Library next Tuesday evening at 7:30PM. After a quick Special Meeting, we will move into some exciting topics. We are scheduled to have a presentation from Sunshine Children's Home, who will get us up to date on their proposed expansion plan for the site on Cedar Lane. We will also hear from the new owners of Snowden House in the Village, who are asking for an extension of the existing PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) program on the site. Glenn Weinberg will be joining us to explain some of the positive effects our homeowners will see now that Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is here, and finally, we will hear from Julie Roche of Burbio, a company who has proposed a new way for Ossining to manage our community calendar. Even better news? They plan to handle it free of charge. Come hear about the exciting projects we are working on in the Town, or come to ask a question to or raise a topic with the Board. These are your meetings, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Tonight is the last chance to see the Ossining High School Drama Club's production of "In the Heights"- the show is fantastic, and while tickets are still available for reserved seats, most seats are free. Join me at the final performance tonight, or maybe I will see you at some other events around Town this week.
