Village Fights O&R Rate Hike
The Village of Greenwood Lake adopted a resolution joining forces with the Orange County Association of Towns, Villages and Cities to fight O&R’s proposed gas and electric rate hike. The rate hike will not take effect until 2016 if approved. We will keep you advised as to the progress of this fight.
Young Scout Uses Training to Save Dog
Among our many incredible organizations, there is the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts are a dedicated group of individuals engaged in preparing our youth for productive and meaningful lives of service. The Scouts are trained in survival, civics, ethics and a number of other valuable life lessons. Among them, ice training and rescue. Well, on January 25th, 2015, that particular skill came in handy. Young Scout and GWL resident, Connor Brennan, 11 years old, used his Scout training to save the life of a dog that was stranded after having fallen through the ice. Connor’s training kicked in and the young Scout saved the dog’s life at our Town Beach while out with his family. I would like to personally commend Connor, his proud parents and the great training provided by the Scouts. Job well done!
