Updated Draft of local law [PDF]
The village board, the village code enforcement officer and the attorney for the village have devoted much time to drafting a lighting law. We have reviewed laws in a number of municipalities, including the Town of Warwick; the City of Black Diamond, WA; and the Town of Charlestown, RI; and have discussed the issue with many people, including village residents. This is a complex issue and we appreciate your patience. Linked here [pdf] is the revised draft lighting law. The board will hold a public hearing on the proposed law at 7 p.m., Monday, January 28, 2019, at Village Hall. [view entire resolution] We welcome your comments.

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson has introduced a new format for its water bills. A postcard has replaced the perforated envelope that residents of the Town of Cornwall as well as the village receive.
The new format is a step toward a paperless system that will simplify paying village water bills.
“As with any new procedure, we are working to smooth out any difficulties,” Mike Trainor, Village Water Superintendent, said. “We appreciate customers’ patience as we work through the challenges of the new format.”
The name, address, account number and amount owed appear on the postcard. Part of the process includes changing account numbers; the old account numbers are on file. The postcard has a return stub that can be separated and mailed or dropped off with payment. Other municipalities, including the towns of Goshen, Monroe, New Windsor and Warwick, use the postcard format for its water bills.
Some residents have provided feedback on the new system. Some are concerned that postcard format shows their information. Few people see the postcards, however, and the data is public information. For those who are late with payments, the words “PAST DUE” will not appear on the postcards. Others are pleased that they no longer have to open a challenging envelope.
Options are available for those who would rather not receive postcards and prefer other ways to pay their bills:
“If anyone has any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at village hall (845-534-4200),” Trainor said.
5. That a public hearing be held by the Village Board on January 28, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Village Hall located at 325 Hudson Street, Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, with respect to amending Chapter 172 of the Village Code
