Dear Village Folks:

Having been dealing with COVID-19 for more than half a year, we need to remember the importance of wearing masks when we’re unable to maintain social distancing of at least six feet.

Mask wearing and social distancing helps stop the spread of COVID-19 and sends a strong message to all you meet that you care about their health.

 

So please continue to comply with wearing masks and social distancing. We want to continue to keep the rate of COVID-19 low.

 

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department recently received a traffic enforcement grant from the NYS Governor' s Traffic Safety Committee, as part of this enforcement grant Cornwall-on­ Hudson PD will be participating in the New York State Governor's Traffic Safety Committee's, Distracted Driving Initiative, between October 08, 2020 thru October 12, 2020. Cornwall-on­ Hudson PD officers will be on assigned patrols looking for violators who are utilizing their cell phone while operating a motor- vehicle.

What is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system - anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.

Consequences of Distracted Driving?

Using a cell phone while driving creates enormous potential for deaths and injuries on U.S.

roads. In 2018 alone, 2,841people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. Among those killed were: 1,730 drivers, 605 passengers, 400 pedestrians and 77 bicyclists.

Census deadline is September 30

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson still needs to push to respond to the Census 2020. The deadline is Wednesday, September 30.

The village has reached 73% mark with a week to go but is still far from 100%. If you have internet access, you can respond here: my2020census.gov/login. If you don’t have the census mailer, you can go here: my2020census.gov/app/intro/state. If you prefer to respond by phone, or have questions, call: 844-330-2020.

Census results will guide lawmakers regarding where to distribute more than $675 billion in federal funding to infrastructure, schools, firefighters, hospitals, libraries and other vital services in Orange County.

Census data also informs how federal funding will be used toward hundreds of programs in the county, including Medicaid, Head Start and block grants for mental health services.

Let’s be counted, Cornwall-on-Hudson!

John and Jackie Gioia at the Band Stand in 2020

Friday, July 24, 2020

 

Village Folks:

 

Thanks for complying with the COVID-19 protocol when you come into Village Hall. Lots of people are coming in to get permits for Donahue Memorial Park. With my desk near the receptacle for the drop-box, I can hear items being deposited and know that the drop-box has become an easy way to pay bills 24/7.

 

The next Bandstand Concert is at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 28, and it features the village’s very own duo, John and Jackie Gioia. They play folk rock and often perform in the village and the Town of Cornwall. They entertained online for the Cornwall Independence Day Celebration and they helped usher in the holiday season at the village tree lighting ceremony at the bandstand in December.

 

Lots of people have attended the first three concerts. The grounds at the village bandstand are tight, however, so as we continue to deal with COVID-19, it is important to wear a mask when you can’t social distance.

 

Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a statement Tuesday that bars are still not open. You can have alcohol only when you’re dining. Please keep that in mind when you’re attending one of the village’s restaurants. The governor shut down four restaurants in New York City and Long Island this week because patrons were not complying with social distancing, or wearing a mask when they couldn’t social distance. 

 

The Village Board combined its work session and business meeting in July and will do so again in August.  

 

Stay Healthy!

Village Folks:

 

So, Village Hall has continued to run smoothly since we re-opened our doors on Monday, July 6, and visitors have complied with safety plans. The drop-box is always available to pay bills 24/7, located on the drive-through side of Village Hall.

 

The next Bandstand Concert is at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 21; it features The Drizzle, a quartet playing funk, soul and R&B. Lots of people at the first two concerts. Please wear a mask when you can’t social distance.

 

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson got a reminder about the 2020 census this week. The village is doing well at just over a 67% response rate but we are far from 100%. If you have internet access, you can respond here: https://my2020census.gov/login. If you don’t have the census mailer, you can go here: https://my2020census.gov/app/intro/state. If you prefer to respond by phone, or have questions, call: 844-330-2020.

 

The Village Board is combining its work sessions and business meetings in July and August. The July 20 Business Meeting will be held via teleconference. 

 

Stay Healthy!

Village Folks:

The Mid-Hudson Region entered Phase 4 of Governor Cuomo’s re-opening as of Tuesday, July 7. Phase 4 includes opening outdoor arts and entertainment to 33% percent capacity, and professional sports without fans. Amusement parks, bowling alleys and movie theaters still are closed.

Village Hall re-opened its doors Monday, July 6. We’ve seen a bunch of people come in to get riverfront permits and to pay water bills. Visitors have complied with safety plans and proceedings have gone smoothly. The drop-box remains a convenient way to pay bills 24/7.

 

It was great to see lots of people at the bandstand Tuesday, July 7, for the first summer concert. The next concert features Midnight Slim & Laurieanne at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 14. Please honor social distancing and wear a mask when you can’t.

 

Thanks to the Public Works Department for dealing with the torrential thunderstorm Wednesday, July 8. The village received more than four inches of rain between noon and 3:30 p.m. and experienced extensive flooding. Thanks also to Storm King Engine for pumping out some basements.

 

The Village Board will combine work sessions and business meetings in July and August. The July 20 Business Meeting will be held via teleconference.  

 

Stay Healthy!
