The Town has adopted the NYS Unified Solar Permit which is a clear, concise form for those wishing to install solar panels on their home.  This process is designed for installations of 12kW or less and offers an expedited review.  If you are considering solar to power your home, you may download the permit here.  For more information you can also visit www.ny-sun.ny.gov.

I would like to congratulate our two K-9 officers, Police Officer Kevin Halsey and Police Officer Vincent Cossentino, as well as their canine partners “Nicky” and “Tank” for their performances at the recent Region 7 Certification Trials of the U.S. Police Canine Association.  Officer Halsey and “Nicky” placed 1st overall in the open division.  Officer Cossentino and “Tank” placed 1st in the novice division.  Both received other honors, as well.  Great job to these exceptional teams, who have also had many positive impacts in their regular duties here in Warwick.  Well done!
