Stop The Tax Shift:

The New York Conference of Mayors has launched a public education campaign to defend property taxpayers from tax shifts that may be pushed from the state onto cities and Villages. This campaign will deliver a unified message through a new NYCOM-designed single-issue Web site, www.stopthetaxshift.org. State and local officials, the media and the public will be able to utilize this site to understand the direct connection between state actions - e.g., state aid and state mandates - and New York's real property tax burden.

Local officials and private citizens will also be able to use the Web site to deliver this message directly to state leaders, legislators and opinion-makers.

Recycling Dumpsters:

For the convenience of Village residents, recycling dumpsters are available Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 4:00 pm at the DPW Facility, located at 50 Shore Road. Any questions please call the DPW office at 534-7600.

Unwanted Phone Books:

Please find below the links to two websites intended to help stem the tide of unwanted phone book deliveries. 

Yellowpagesgoesgreen.org is an organization working to educate consumers and promote the green movement to eliminate the unsolicited delivery of Yellow and White Pages books. This site is aimed at starting a national movement to solicit the White/Yellow Pages industry to proactively stop the delivery of books or to begin moving legislation to mandate the stoppage of this activity. This movement should be similar to the National No-Call Registry that have stopped and/or decreased the number of unwanted solicitations telephone calls to consumers.

PaperlessPetition.org will expedite an end to this needless environmental waste, educate consumers on free and easy alternatives, and shed light on the growing inaccuracy of readership statistics that drive advertisers to still invest in this antiquated medium.

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson does not endorse nor advise any action to be taken by any individual however provides the above for informational purposes.


NY-Alert Now Available:

NY-Alert can warn people of extreme weather, hazardous materials spills, road closures, terrorist attacks and much more.

But you won't get the warning if you don't register. To enroll, visit the system's Web site at www.nyalert.gov, then click the "sign up" option along the left side.

Your local emergency managers will be able to contact only your home phone if you do not register your cellular number, fax number or e-mail address.

Registration is broken up by county, town and the variety of alerts a person wishes to receive. Public safety officials said some parents are signing up for alerts in the town where their children are attending college, just to stay informed.

The above was reported by the Times-Herald Record on Sunday April 27, 2008.  Click HERE for the entire article.
