ALBANY – Cashless tolling will go live on the New York State Thruway’s ticketed system during the overnight hours of Friday, November 13, into Saturday, November 14. The conversion will take place simultaneously at 58 tolling locations across the Thruway’s 450-mile ticketed system.
The official switch will take place in the overnight hours to limit the impact on traffic. At the time cashless tolling goes live, cash will no longer be accepted as a form of payment at toll booths and printed toll tickets will not be handed out.
To support this transition, NY E-ZPass has released a new TollsNY mobile app to help drivers manage E-ZPass accounts, find and pay Tolls by Mail invoices, and get important account alerts for tolls accrued at Thruway, MTA, and Port Authority tolling sites.
Governor Andrew Cuomo said the project will save time for motorists, as well as reduce traffic, cut greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality along the Thruway.
“Cashless tolling is already improving traffic flow, allowing motorists to get to their destinations easier and quicker without having to stop to pay a toll,” said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. “Less idling also complements our clean energy goals, reducing pollution for a cleaner and greener environment. We encourage all drivers to get an E-ZPass across the state, with a new mobile app to help manage accounts and alerts to make it easier for New Yorkers.”

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.

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,

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.
