Mayor Dwyer’s Column

Greenwood Lake Mayor

Snow Procedures

        Earlier this year, I recall hearing from several sources that this winter would be among the worst in recent history. Some of us believed it while others did not. In any case, we as a community must work together to deal with snow storms, as well as any challenging occurrence in our Village. Here are a few of my tips and suggestions of ways in which we can all work together during a snow event:

  • Do not shovel your snow into the roads.
  • If you are able-bodied, please clean the areas around nearby fire hydrants and also check on neighbors and loved ones
  • Try as best you can to clear off the roof of your home
  • Driving with snow covering your vehicle’s roof is not only dangerous to you  it is illegal
  • Storefront home and property owners along Windermere are required to remove the snow in front of their property within 24 hours of a snow event. You will be fined if you do not.
  • Please, if you are aware of any nearby storm drains, clean them out. This year will most likely be a flood year, so be prepared.


Village Receives Grant for Park

        I am happy to announce that the Village of Greenwood Lake has received a grant for upgrading Town owned property at the WaterfrontBeach. We will be installing porous pavement at the beach to assist with drainage and ensure that parking is more efficient with drawn parking lines. The Village Board, in working with the Town of Warwick and State Senator John Bonacic, was able to achieve great progress toward improving our parks within the Village.

    The grant money is fantastic, but isn’t cheaper to pave the lot ? With the money saved we can buy benches, and we need more lighting at the beach.

      This will be a paved the lot. We are not using porous pavers. The drainage is such that we could not just pave that lot without doing major underground work. This is actually the cheapest and most effective way to pave the lot (porous solution). The Town Supervisor and I have already installed more lighting at the beach.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts and concerns.
