The Village is handling COVID-19 well. We are fortunate to have caring residents and dedicated employees. Contact us at 534-4200 or [email protected] for Village business.
My thanks to Storm King Fire Engine Company for helping the Easter Bunny tour the Village on Easter Sunday - for making us smile and lifting our spirits. The teachers and staff at Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary are tentatively planning to have a car parade throughout the Village at 2:30 Friday, April 24.
In case you haven’t heard, St. Thomas and the Cornwall Presbyterian Church in the Village, and other churches in the Town of Cornwall, are holding services online.
Following the installation of the new gas lines, repairs to Hudson Street will begin Monday, April 20. Be aware of changes in traffic patterns and parking.
We still don’t know when the Village election, originally scheduled for March 18, will be held. As I mentioned last week, the annual re-organization meeting, which generally occurs the first Monday in April, must take place after the election. Until then the Village is holding over all current officials, both elected and appointed.
The Village Board will hold its monthly Business Meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, April 20, a virtual meeting, as it did its March 23 meeting. The public may watch and speak during public hearing and public comment segments. Directions on how to participate will be available through the Village’s Facebook page and website (www.cornwall-on-hudson.org). I ask that if you do wish to speak, please be brief and understand the unusual format. And remember, you can always call or email me.
Of course, health professionals and first responders are always on our minds in times like this and we thank them for their sacrifices. Let’s also be grateful to our farmers, farmworkers and food preparers.
As you have probably heard, Governor Cuomo has issued an executive order that we must wear masks in public when are unable to maintain the distance of six feet. And he has extended the pause button until Friday, May 15.
So, let’s keep on keeping on. Let’s remember our families, friends and neighbors and lend a hand, or an ear, during these tough times.
