Week of October 4, 2015

The opening of Wickham Woodlands was a huge success and the park has been busy every day since.  Thank you to the citizens’ committee, headed by Councilman Russ Kowal, who were charged with turning some of the more readily achievable ideas, generated at the Town Visioning Session, into reality and planning the day.  Thank you to the Bruderhof Community for their presence with face painting and carriage rides.

Thank you also to the Beautiful People Adaptive Sports folks, as well as Warwick Little League for partnering in some great baseball games; Dial-A-Bus drivers, Donna and Debbie, for transporting residents around this great site.  I am especially grateful and proud of the outstanding job done by the Town DPW and Parks Department for really turning a rather wild, overgrown area into a spectacular, pristine passive park for our residents’ enjoyment.  As mentioned that day, this is just the beginning.  Citizens are encouraged to imagine the possibilities and share them with my office.   Hopefully, you’ll agree to work on an area or project that interests you so we continue to enhance and improve this wonderful new addition to our park system. 

The final Household Hazardous Waste day of the year will be held on Friday, October 23, for farms and businesses and on Saturday, October 24, for Orange County residents at the Fire Training Center, Route 17M, New Hampton.  Farms and businesses must register by October 12 by calling 291-2664.  This is your last chance this year to safely dispose of all those old pesticides and chemicals under your sinks.

A Public Hearing entitled “Amending the Town Code Chapter 164 Zoning” has been continued to October 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, October 8, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
