Week of August 2, 2021
After a few setbacks in getting approval to open the pools at the former Kutz Camp, I am pleased to announce that the pools have opened to Town residents only, starting Saturday, July 31st. Since we want residents to experience this great addition to our recreation facilities, there will be no charge for use of the pools the rest of the season, which ends on Labor Day. The pools are open 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Time in the pool area is limited to two (2) hour blocks/day (10:00-12:00, 12:00-2:00, 2:00-4:00, 4:00-6:00) for this season so as many of our residents as possible can enjoy them. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Proof of residency is required. You are encouraged to bring your own chairs. There are also areas for picnicking, as well. Please come out to experience this wonderful new addition to our recreation’s opportunities, and imagine future possibilities!
We were made aware of a scam where a well-dressed man went to a resident’s home, posing as a Water Department employee from the Town, explaining to the resident that they need to get into the home to test the water. Please be advised that Environmental Consultants, who handles the water for the Town, would always show identification. If you have doubt or questions, please call the Supervisor’s Office at 986-1120, and we will confirm with Environmental Consultants. Do not open your door to anyone who shows up in an unmarked white truck and who does not provide identification. Should you encounter this, please alert the Police Department at 986-5000.
It is that time again for senior citizens in our Town to get their tickets to our annual Senior BBQ to be held this year on Tuesday, August 24th (Rain Date: August 25th). This event is FREE to any senior citizen residing in the Town of Warwick, thanks to the generous donations of so many community service organizations, our Veterans’ groups, the Warwick Valley Rotary and the support of many volunteers. Our seniors will be served hot dogs for lunch and then a complete chicken dinner, prepared by local chef, Mike Coleman, of Mike’s Custom BBQ. A fun-filled day kicks off at 11:00 a.m. at the Town Park on Union Corners Road. This event is free to any senior citizen in our Town, but you do need a ticket which can be obtained through one of our seven senior citizen organizations or by stopping by the Supervisor’s Office in the Warwick Town Hall, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Mark your calendars, and don’t miss this opportunity to have your community say thanks for all you have done to make this a great place to live.
The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway. Meeting can be viewed live on the Town of Warwick YouTube channel.
