Week of November 27, 2016

Both Brady and Taylor Road culvert projects are complete, and both roads are now open.  The Brady Road project was a long time in coming since it took a fight with FEMA to get their approval to make the repair necessary to construct a lasting solution.  Please be aware that the intersection has returned to its previous traffic pattern of a stop sign where Cascade Road meets Brady Road.

The NYS DEC has issued a general permit for work in Greenwood Lake during the current drawdown.  This permit covers maintenance dredging, repairs of existing bulkheads, debris removal and replenishment of beach areas.  Each individual property owner does need to file an application with the DEC.  The application information can be found at http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/79144.html

The Village of Florida will hold their tree lighting, with the Florida Fire Department, on December 2nd at 4:00 p.m. in front of Village Hall, and there will be a special guest handing out treats.  On December 4th the Village of Greenwood Lake will be decked out in all its holiday splendor with a Christmas Fair followed by a tree lighting at 5:30 p.m.

It’s that time of year again.  I would like to remind residents of the Town’s snow regulations:
The parking of vehicles is hereby prohibited on all highways and other public property of the Town at any time during inclement winter weather from November 1 through April 1 of the succeeding year.  Vehicles in violation of this article will be towed at the owner’s expense. 

Any property owner who fails to remove snow and/or ice from sidewalks adjoining his property within 24 hours after a snowfall and any person who throws, shovels, plows or places snow or ice onto a public street, highway or right-of-way shall be guilty of a violation and subject to a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 days, or by both said fine and imprisonment.
