Mayor’s Message [Governor’s NY Forward Project Awards and Water System Award Edition]

Dear Residents and Friends of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson,

It’s OFFICIAL! Governor Kathy Hochul’s Office has just issued a press release identifying the municipal, non-profit, and private sector “transformational” Mid-Hudson Region project award selections. The Cornwall community – which includes the Town and the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson – were blessed with a bounty of $4.5 million in reinvestments as part of the New York Forward grant award we received in February of 2023. Our Village-Town collaboration, coupled with the long hours and due diligence exerted by our handpicked Local Planning Committee, a plethora of committed volunteers (special shout-out to EDAC’s Steve Jones and Jason Burnham), our community planner, and the Village’s and Town’s engineering firms all served as the clear-cut margin of victory. Now, as they oft say, the hard work begins in earnest as we seek to put contracts in place and shovels in the soil. Stay tuned for exciting details soonest.

Secondly, I’d be remiss in not recognizing our Cornwall-on-Hudson Water Department under the leadership of Superintendent Mike Trainor for their recent New York State award recognition as “2024 Water System of the Year.” Staffed with only nine employees – the aforementioned Superintendent Trainor, Water Maintenance Leader Daniel Nye, Chief Water Plant Operator Donald Bryde, Assistant Leader Richard Smith, Heavy Equipment Operator Joseph McCormick, Motor Equipment Operator Luis Delacruz, and Water Maintenance Operators Daniel Dimitrov and Jason Sergeant, along with P/T Clerk Stephanie Xagoraris -- our crews perform yeoman’s work on behalf of residential and commercial water customers within the Village and Town, as well as the Cornwall Central School District. This honor reflects on their professionalism and the pride they exhibit in their daily duties to deliver pure, clean drinking water to all of us.

On behalf of your Village Board,

James A. “Jimmy” Gagliano
