Week of January 19, 2019

On Monday we celebrated the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with our friends and neighbors at the UAME Church on McEwen Street in the Village of Warwick.  The spirit of this moving remembrance and celebration of Dr. King was uplifting, inspiring and truly motivating.  It reminded me of what a great nation this is and that the efforts of just one citizen can make a tremendous amount of positive change.  Let the lessons and example of how Dr. King persevered in his mission to improve our world be an encouragement to all of us.  Happy Birthday, Dr. King!

If you are a landowner who files yearly for an agricultural exemption, you should be aware that New York State has now required that a long form be on file with the Assessor.  If you are not sure if one is or what you should do, I urge you to contact Deborah Eurich, the Town Assessor, as soon as possible so you do not miss the deadline to file.
