Week of December 22, 2014

This is a special time of year. I may be biased, but it is especially magical here in the Warwick Valley. Our three villages and many hamlets are beautifully decorated to entice you to linger among the many charming shops and fabulous restaurants. Local service organizations, like the Warwick Rotary, Warwick Lions and the Ecumenical Council are marshalling donations of food, as well as gifts, so that those in need have a better holiday. The generosity of the people of Warwick know no bounds, which adds to the special nature of this place. On behalf of the Town Board and all our employees, I wish all our residents a very Merry Christmas, Happy Channukah, and Happy Kwanza.

The work to replace the culvert on Bowen Road has been completed with paving and guardrail work finished this past week. The job was well done by the contractor, local firm Allied Excavating, and completed on time, as well as on budget. This leaves only two remaining culverts that were damaged by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. FEMA has approved one, Jessup Road, which is now in design, and hopefully will approve Brady Road soon. This work will be completed next spring. While we are frustrated by the delay, when complete and paid for by our federal tax dollars, the Town will have two structures that will serve us for 50-100 years.

A reminder that our recycling hauler, County Waste, will collect your recycling the day after the holiday if your pick up day falls on the holiday.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, December 30, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
