“100% Volunteer – Serving our Community Since 1868”

Dear Neighbor,

2020 was certainly a year to be forgotten for all of us. The COVID pandemic wreaked havoc on our entire country, state, and community. Through it all our fire company continued to meet the emergency needs of its residents whenever called upon. Alas, there is light at the end of the tunnel. As the COVID vaccine continues to be administered on a daily basis, our community has begun to regain some normalcy as part of our daily lives. With this in mind and as summer approaches we are happy to announce that we will once again host the 70th edition of our Annual Summer Firemen’s Fair July 21st thru July 24th this year on the grounds of the Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary School. This year’s fair promises to be very special in light of what we have all collectively faced this past year.

You will begin to see our advertising signs in the area beginning on or about July 1st. Set-up will begin Saturday July 17th with opening night of the fair on the 21st. The start time on Wed., Thur., and Fri. will be 6pm and closing time each night is 11pm. The final day of the fair, Saturday, will open at 4pm and close at 11pm following our grand fireworks display. We will host area summer camps on Wed. and Thur. between 9am and 1pm. Each night of the fair will include the typical carnival rides, games of chance, food and live music. Break down and clean- up will take place on Sunday July 25th with carnival ride removal from the grounds continuing for a couple of days thereafter.

While this annual summer event is much anticipated and enjoyed by the vast majority of our community, it can present some minor inconvenience and disturbance to some in our village. Particularly for residents such as you who reside in close proximity to the fair grounds. We do not this lightly and appreciate your understanding and cooperation. With this in mind, we would like to provide you the following contact information should you have any questions or concerns regarding this year’s fair. You may feel free to contact either of us.

Dear Cornwall-on-Hudson residents, neighbors, and friends:

Apologies for last week’s radio silence. Was upstate in attendance at annual conference held by the New York State Conference of Mayors (NYCOM). I certainly absorbed a lot of information via technical briefings and presentations, and Lake George was a most stunning location to convene. But, always good to return home to Cornwall-on-Hudson.

Reminder that on this upcoming Monday, June 21st, immediately before the regularly-scheduled business meeting of the Board of Trustees at 7:00 p.m., we will conduct an overdue tribute to the longest-tenured mayor in Village history – Edward C. Moulton, Jr. – by dedicating the Village board room in his honor. Mr. Moulton served COH as mayor for 26 years and was responsible for moving Village Hall into our current facility in 1992.

At Monday’s meeting, the Village Board will also unveil our new state-of-the-art livestream system for remote access to monthly Board meetings. Transparency, ease-in-access are important to us. Here’s YouTube link to view in real time (or go back and watch later) including Moulton dedication ceremony and recognition of Village resident who helped save Dobbs Ferry police officer’s life following stabbing: https://youtu.be/HxY-IGHbmH0

Also, on the Board’s agenda for Monday: Resolution to approve purchase of police body camera system for COHPD officers, announcement of Donahue Farm Steering Committee appointments, Board of Fire Commissioners appointments, MRTA (Marijuana Law) discussion, and Chestnut Street and Mill Street Water Main Replacements update.

Around the Village: Facelift at Village Hall continues – check it out! Sidewalks are being replaced as necessary, within the budget. Selected road re-paving (and pothole repairs) set to commence soonest. Capital Improvement Plan geared towards necessary critical infrastructure repairs under Board consideration and pending an engineer review.

Dear Cornwall-on-Hudson residents, neighbors, and friends:

Was truly humbling and awe-inspiring to take in the crowds along the parade route and witness the gathering at the Veterans’ Triangle during Memorial Day observances last Monday. As President Lincoln so eloquently spoke of while honoring the fallen at Gettysburg – our nation owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to the men and women who “gave the last full measure of devotion.” God bless them all and rest their souls.

Reminder that on Saturday, June 5th, Girls on the Run Hudson Valley Chapter will be holding a small 5K Race which commences at 8:45 a.m. and should conclude around 10:00 a.m. The race begins and ends at COH Elementary School. Would be great if some residents could help cheer the runners on and if motorists proceeded with caution in area.

Per Water Superintendent Michael Trainor: Residents can be kept informed by subscribing to the Village’s messaging system. Simply text to 99411 and enter the keyword COH12520. Enrollment affords you emergency alert notifications, as well as other general use information regarding Village services and other matters requiring public dissemination.

The Village Board will be grappling with a myriad of issues this month; to include provisions of the Marijuana Regulation and Treatment Act, our Short-Term Rental Law, standing-up of the Donahue Farm steering committee, training our police in body cam implementation, livestreaming of our Board Meetings, and a Capital Improvement Plan that seeks to tackle necessary infrastructure repairs and upgrades. We plan to be “live” for our June 21st Business Meeting (instructions forthcoming on how to observe from a provided link on our website and Facebook page. At that same meeting, former Mayor Edward C. Moulton, Jr. will be honored as the Board Room is dedicated in his name.

Heat wave closing in. Will be in the 90’s all weekend. Stay cool and hydrate if outdoors.

Let’s all be our brother’s and sister’s keepers.

My very best wishes to all,

James A. “Jimmy” Gagliano
