Week of August 1, 2015

Tickets are now available to the 2015 Senior Citizen BBQ, to be held this year on Tuesday, August 25, from 11.00 am to 4:00 pm at Union Corners Park. This is a full day of fun, music, give-a-ways, hot dogs and a full chicken dinner. Many community leaders will be on hand to serve you at your seat, so you can fully enjoy the day. Tickets are free to any senior who is a resident of the Town of Warwick and are free of charge, thanks to many sponsors from our community. Tickets are available through your senior club or for pick-up at my office, 132 Kings Highway.

With the expected hot and humid week ahead, please keep an eye on your elderly neighbors and don't hesitate to call the Police at 986-5000, if you would like us to check on them. Many seniors do make good use of one of our area libraries (Albert Wisner Library, Greenwood Lake Library or the Florida Library) to stay cool during the day. The Town senior center is also available from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm Monday-Friday but is also available to be opened after hours by contacting the Warwick Police Department at 986-5000.

August is “Backpack Snack Attack” Back to School Month in the Town of Warwick. Backpack Snack Attack is a not-for-profit outreach program of the Warwick Reformed Church which provides food on weekends and during the summer to needy children in the Town of Warwick public schools. Funds raised in our community will stay here, and any amount you can spare will be greatly appreciated. Look for canisters in our local merchants or at special events held throughout the year.

Please be advised Jessup Road from Sargent Road to Distillery Road will be closed for the replacement of a culvert damaged during Hurricane Irene. The work is expected to be completed in four weeks. Please follow posted detours, and leave extra time in your travels.

New utility installation on State School Road will begin on or about July 29. The road will remain open but anticipate delays, and please be careful of the work crews. Once complete, the new business/technology park will be serviced by new electric, natural gas, telecommunications service, as well as municipal water and sewer.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 7:30 pm in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
