Mayor Dwyer’s Column
Greenwood Lake Mayor
By Jesse Dwyer
The Village Election will be held Wednesday, March 18, 2015 from 12pm – 9pm in the Senior Center. Please be sure to exercise your right to vote and have your voice heard. This year, the seats up for election are Mayor, Trustee (2) and Village Justice. Be sure you are informed of the platforms before voting. A blind vote is more dangerous than a no vote in my opinion.
Good Times for a Great Cause
This past weekend I had the honor of being the Irish Whisper’s Guest Bartender for the afternoon. This fun event raise nearly $600 for the GWL Lions Clubs Youth Programs. Thank you so much to the great local business owners Joe and Maureen Anthony for all of the contributions to the betterment of our community.
Continuing Budget Workshops
The Village Board and administration continue to work on the upcoming budget. This year, we are working with a 1.68% tax cap levy limit as well as the requirement of having a government efficiency plan in place by July. The Board has, however, been proactive with these measures and have taken such action to ensure that our government runs as efficiently as possible and we are pleased to present the government efficiency plan over the next couple months.
