Dear Village Folks:

 

So, Cornwall-on-Hudson will have a new administration come April 5. Jim Gagliano will become mayor and Bill Braine will become a trustee. Dave Carnright will continue as trustee. Good luck to the Village Board!

 

The Village Board will hold its Business Meeting Monday, March 22. The board will set a public hearing for a proposed short-term rentals law for its April 19 Business Meeting. The draft law will be posted on the Village website soon.

 

Spring arrives Saturday with temperatures around 60. Have a great weekend!

 

Sincerely,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

Dear Village Folks:

 

I’m happy to confirm that online payment of utility bills (water, sewer and garbage) will begin in April. More details will be available soon.

 

The board passed the Police Reform Plan at its March 8 Work Session. The board made a few minor changes. I sent the plan to Albany the next day. Again, thanks to the members of the committee. 

 

We also discussed the proposed short-term rental law at the work session and suggested some changes. We hope to post the proposed law next week. The Public Hearing on the proposed law will be postponed to our April 19 Business Meeting.

 

The Village Election is Tuesday, March 16, from noon to 9 p.m. at Village Hall.

 

Enjoy the spring-like weather and have a good weekend.

 

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

Dear Village Folks:

 

The next Village Work Session is Monday, February 8, via teleconference. The agenda includes the Police Reform Plan. The Police Reform Committee has worked over the course of three months and I believe the plan is appropriate for a small Village like ours that has a low crime rate. I am grateful to the 13 members of the committee. The Village must file its plan in Albany by April 1.

 

We will hope discuss the proposed short-term rental law. We plan to hold a Public Hearing on the proposed law at our March 22 Business Meeting.

 

The Village Election is Tuesday, March 16, from noon to 9 p.m. at Village Hall. Registration day is tomorrow, Saturday, March 6, from noon to 5 p.m. at Village Hall.

 

The weather has been back and forth, typical of March. But warmer days are coming and spring will soon be here so we can get out more often.

 

Have a good weekend!

 

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor

Dear Village Folks:

So, the Village Board approved my signing the contract for the Donahue Farm property Monday night and I signed it the next day. The 47-acre property now belongs to the residents of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson. We’ll form a planning committee in the near future and start working on how to best enjoy this beautiful place.

The purchase culminated a whirlwind of activity in January and February during which the Village annexed 39 acres in the Town of Cornwall to help the Village manage the Black Rock Water Treatment Plant on the property. The Village will save $60,000 annually in town and school taxes.

The Village has also sought and received permission from the Palisades Interstate Park Commission to create a hiking trail on its 45-acre parcel along Rt. 218 that runs down to the Hudson River. The Village’s Riverfront Committee has begun meeting with the New York/New Jersey Trail Conference for guidance in developing a trail.     

And all three parcels will benefit from the 2020 Comprehensive Plan, also passed in the last two months. The plan, the first one in 60 years, will provide a roadmap for the parcels and the rest of the Village.

These developments will greatly enhance the quality of life for all of us.  

Enjoy your weekend!

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor
