[Busy Week of Updates and Village Clerk Retirement Edition]:
Dear Residents and Friends of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson,
Lots going on this week. Our newly-appointed, part-time Village Treasurer, Ms. Gabrielle Ferrier begins her employment with the Village on Monday (today) and tomorrow (Tuesday) the County will host the Democratic Primary Election at Village Hall, 325 Hudson Street, between hours of 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Only registered Democrats are allowed to vote in this election.
On Wednesday, the Village will host the second Local Planning Committee meeting – between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. -- as part of the NY Forward grant process. Residents are encouraged to attend (there is also an opportunity to view the livestream link to be posted on our website and Facebook page). We are moving into the project submittals period. Check out www.cornwallnyf.com for announcements, information, and answers to all of your questions.
Thursday, the Orange County Clerk’s Office will send its Mobile DMV unit to Village Hall parking lot. Hours of operation: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and then, following quick lunch break, again from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. This is an excellent opportunity to get enhanced driver’s licenses and handle a myriad of other matters right here in Village Hall’s municipal parking lot.
Finally – it is with deepest regrets that I announce that Village Clerk Jeanne Mahoney’s final day at Village Hall is this Friday. She served this community, along with numerous editions of Village Boards, and four mayors humbly, honorably and with distinction. We will host an Open House on Friday between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Stop by to pay a water bill, procure a waterfront parking permit, grouse at the mayor, and most importantly – wish Jeanne well after her 29 years as a loyal Village employee. She will be missed. Effective Monday, July 3, 2023: Deputy Village Clerk Doris Wickiser will assume the interim Village Clerk duties and Secretary to the Planning Board Meagan Gschwind will rotate up into the interim Deputy Village Clerk role. As always, Clerk Suzy Yarmus will be the glue that binds the front office together.
On behalf of your Village Board,
James A. “Jimmy” Gagliano
