Mayor's New Year's Eve Message
December 31, 2020
Dear Village Folks:
I have to start again by thanking our Department of Public Works for handling difficult weather. Dave Halvorsen and his crew had to leave their families on Christmas Day to clear trees, limbs and debris from our streets and to deal with some flooding. Thanks, guys!
I also want to thank Central Hudson for restoring power in the Village and around the Hudson Valley. Many Village residents were without power on Christmas day.
So, another casualty of the pandemic: The Village’s New Year’s Eve Ball Drop – no public gathering to welcome the new year. But the Cornwall-on-Hudson Special Events Committee will create a virtual countdown that will be live-streamed via its Facebook page.
Thanks for your patience and understanding as we dealt with the virus during this difficult year. Condolences to families who lost loved ones. Please continue to stay safe as the vaccines become more available.
On behalf of the Village Board and all Village employees, I wish you health and prosperity in 2021. Happy New Year!
All the best,
