Mayor Drew Fixell began the meeting with a moment of silence for Elizabeth "Libby" Scarborough Mascia, the founder of the child-care center in Tarrytown that now bears her name, who died Sept. 15. She was 91.
Village Administrator's Report
Michael Blau reported that the largest of the commuter parking lots across from the train station will be repaved. The work is scheduled to begin Friday, Sept. 21.
"The village is working on creating alternate locations for parking and a flyer designating temporary commuter parking areas will be provided to all cars in the commuter lots," said Blau.
Information about alternate parking during the repaving project will also be noted on signs and on the village web site.
"It had to be done sooner or later," said Blau. "I'll take the hit," he said in reaction to the pained look on the faces of some Trustees who obviously anticipated more backlash from commuters already frustrated with the disruption of parking.
Blau went on to say that the repaving of village streets began last Thursday. The following streets have or will be repaved: Walnut, Browning, Embree, Front, and portions of High Street, Benedict from Loh to Martling, and Altamont from Rosehill to Fairview.
"Cooperative bidding with the five villages in the Town of Greenburgh for the repaving of village streets has significantly reduced our paving cost and enabled the village to pave more streets," said Blau.
As a result funds now exist to also pave Hanford Place.
Public Hearing - Alarm User Permits
No one spoke during the public hearing to change residential and commercial security alarm permits from one to two years. The Board quickly passed the measure along with a change to the alarm fee schedule for a two year permit, instead of one. Fees did not increase.
The Board voted to hire RBC Wealth Management to provide investment services for the Length of Service Award Program for the fire department.
The Board awarded a contract to a Connecticut company to repair a "piped stream" under Central Ave. The culvert is part of the storm sewer system. Bids ranged from $112,000 to $197,000. The project was awarded to the lowest bidder.
