Congratulations to all the students of Warwick Valley High School who presented their senior projects this week.  Each student does extensive research, selects a mentor and presents a project on a subject of their choice.  The students are graded by panels of community members on content, presentation and the skills of the presenter themselves.  There was an amazing array of projects, and the kids were outstanding.  Hats off to the teachers/advisors who run the program and the very talented students who have very bright futures.  Well done!

This past week I attended a meeting of the New York State Workers Compensation Alliance, on which I serve, and after an extensive interview process we selected a new Asset Management firm.  Since joining the Compensation Alliance the Town of Warwick has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in premiums.  Our new Asset Manager will ensure these savings continue for our member supported association.

Orange County will hold a public hearing on an update to the County Economic Development section of the Comprehensive Plan.  The hearing will be held on June 4th at 3:15 p.m. in the Emergency Communication Center, 22 Wells Farm Road, Goshen, N.Y. 

The Town Beach, located at the end of Windermere Avenue in the Village of Greenwood Lake, is now open weekends for your enjoyment.  The beach, open from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., is staffed by certified lifeguards and provides picnic areas, as well as restroom and shower facilities.  Daily passes are available at the gate, and both resident as well as non-resident passes are available through both Town and Village Halls.  Call the Town Clerk at 986-1124.  The Town Board has committed to keeping the cost for residents the same as last season.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
