Last call for senior citizens in our Town to get their tickets to our annual Senior BBQ to be held this year on Tuesday, August 27th (Rain Date: August 28th). 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. 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.
Last Thursday at about 4:00 p.m. calls came in that there was a loss of water in the Wickham Water District, the Town’s largest water district. Our crews that were called in from DPW and the Water Department were on site in less than 40 minutes, and as these things go it was a break in the main line that also included several homeowner service taps and a hydrant. After a delay, caused by a late response by those responsible to mark where the natural gas line was located, our crews worked as a team to efficiently locate the water pipe, cut out the damaged sections, fashion the repair pieces, cut out bedrock to make it all fit, test the line and restore service to over 400 homes by midnight. Although it was wet, dirty work and they had worked all day, the crews did their jobs with skill and dedication. Thank you to these good public servants.
Our “HeatSmart” campaign continues with a “Sip & Learn” event at the historic Baird’s Tavern on Main Street in the Village of Warwick. This is a chance to learn about heat pump technology, geothermal heating and cooling systems, as well as saving energy. The event, sponsored by the Town and its Villages, will be held on Thursday, September 26th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be food, and the first 25 people to register will also receive a free drink! To register call (914)-302-7300, ext. 1, or visit HeatSmartNY.com.
The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
