America celebrates 246 years of independence this July 4th.  This grand experiment of government “of the people, by the people and for the people” has not been without its faults or stumbles.  It has, however, endured and slowly but surely became stronger, fairer and more just.  Alexis de Tocqueville wrote “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.”  Today, America is certainly not without faults, but it has repaired many and is still the place where opportunities abound.  Here in the Town of Warwick, our Village of Greenwood Lake will celebrate this great day on Saturday, July 2nd, with a parade at 11:00 a.m. and music starting at the Waterfront Park at 2:00 p.m., followed by fireworks at dusk.  Happy Birthday, America!

Orange & Rockland will be conducting power line maintenance in both the Town and Village of Warwick, starting June 22nd.  This work, conducted by Nelson Tree, is necessary to prevent power outages due to downed trees.  In the Town this work will be on Warwick Turnpike, Route 94, Route 17A, Bellvale Lakes Road., Blooms Corner Road, Pine Island Turnpike, Kings Highway, Belcher Road, Wisner Road, Cascade Road, County Route 1, Union Corners Road, East Ridge Road, Prices Switch Road, as well as associated side streets.

Residents who wish to have the Times Herald Record advertising vendor stop throwing those plastic bags of advertisements in their driveway can notify the vendor by either calling (844)-231-2000 toll free or emailing  They assure me this will make it stop.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, July 14, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
