New York City Water Infrastructure Project

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that it will begin work this month on a $1 million project to repair a culvert that carries stormwater under the Catskill Aqueduct in Millwood. The project, located in the vicinity of Shingle House Road and Hidden Hollow Lane, will be completed by the end of fall.

Planning for the 2019 Memorial Day Parade Has Started

Today we had the first meeting regarding the Memorial Day Parade, to be held on Monday, May 27. We will have a new Grand Marshal of the parade as James McCauley is stepping down, and Peter Gaudet will be the new Grand Marshal. This is really a changing of the guard after Jim’s 20 plus years of volunteer service to the Town.
