Thank you for your patience during our routine hydrant flushing of the Village.

Village Adopts Budget for 2016/2017

One of the many goals I set when I ran for Mayor was to keep taxes affordable and spend our hard earned tax dollars as efficiently as possible to provide the essential services which our residents rely on. I am proud to say that as your Mayor, working with our dedicated Village Board and staff, have done exactly that. In a short 3 years, this Village Board and administration has been able to keep taxes under control while investing resources into our aging infrastructure, youth services, lake maintenance and improvements, revitalizing our parks and grounds, beautifying our main street and re-writing our comprehensive plan for the Village. In 3 years, we have added over $100,000 into our fund balance (savings account) through efficient spending practices and the ability to come in under budget consistently. I assure you, however, this Board is not of a mentality to cut, cut, and cut. We are spending a dollar as you would in your home, the way I do in my home – with consideration for how far a dollar can go.

Some plans that we have for this upcoming budget year are: Sediment remediation project in North West arm of the lake, Waterstone road sidewalk project, replacing deteriorating sidewalks on Windermere Avenue, installing a passive boat launch for public use on the north arm of the lake which will also serve as a Village gateway park, a handicap accessible wetlands trail connecting the dog park with Victory Acres and the Town Park. This Village Board is able to provide ALL of the essential services of previous years, create new programs and upgrade our infrastructure by increasing taxes slightly less than 1 quarter of 1 percent year over year. This equals an increase in taxes of $.13 per thousand dollars of assessed value.

Important Event Date Changes

With the change in Little League’s opening day parade and scheduled games to Saturday, April 16th, we have also moved Clean Sweep to the following Saturday, April 23rd. The Greenwood Lake Little League parade kicks off from Chase bank at 9:00 a.m.. The parade concludes at Lions Field followed by games all day.

Clean Sweep will be held Saturday April 23rd at 9:00 a.m. and will go all day. As previously mentioned, we are encouraging as many people who can to help us with shore cleanups. This can be done from a kayak, row boat, canoe or even a paddle board (for the experienced paddle boarder)! Anyone who would like to participate by boat should meet at the Waterstone Gazebo at 9am. Anyone who would like to help by land should be meeting at the Greenwood Lake Senior Center. We will provide bags, gloves and locations if you do not have a location of your own.
