Many Thanks for Civic Pride

        On behalf of the Village Board I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s Independence Day Parade. I will attempt to thank all individually based on my recollections: Thank you to our Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance Corp, Elks Lodge, Lion’s Club, American Legion Color Guard, Ladies Auxiliary, Sons of the Legion, Knights of Columbus and members of Holy Rosary, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Members of GWL Hardball, all of the viewing public, and I would also like to thank the Village Board, Village Attorney and our visiting elected officials, Warwick Supervisor Mike Sweeton, Deputy Supervisor Jim Gerster, Councilman DeAngelo, Village and Town Judge Nancy DeAngelo, Deerpark Town Supervisor Karl Brabenek, and Woodbury Judge David Hasin. And of course, the guest of honor, GWL Citizen of the year, Sue Toscano. Thank you all so very much for all you do to make our community great.

Village Receives Hydrorake Permit for North Arm

        I am very pleased to announce that last week the Village of Greenwood Lake received approval from the DEC for wetlands remediation to clear channels in our North and West Arms of Greenwood Lake. We anticipate that this project — $100,000 in Grant Funds – will be done in mid- August.

        In addition, I am please dot announce that the herbicides have had a tremendous impact on our lake. As one resident posted on Facebook, which has become more and more common over the past two weeks, people are finally swimming, paddle-boarding and rowing freely and safely in the calmer, weed-free waters of our no wake zones on GreenwoodLake. And in conclusion, I am happy to report that the Egrets are still happily enjoying a wonderful fishing-hole perched atop nearby docks in the East Arm.

    I’ve lived in Greenwood lake for 3 yrs now and my favorite part is the firework display. Once again it was fabulous. Thank you to everyone involved.
