Special thanks is due to the fire department for their efforts in making Fire Prevention Day/Week the success that it was. Chief William J. Graham and our fire department do an outstanding job protecting our lives and homes.
With the installation of 1,145 feet of estate style fencing near completion, the Recreation Department staff have designed and installed 14 perennial beds containing over 400 perennials that will provide a sequence of bloom throughout the growing season. In addition, 2,500 daffodil bulbs will be planted at the base of the fence in the beds connecting the perennial beds for what will be an outstanding show of color in the spring. This enhancement to the St. Paul’s Recreation Complex was made possible through Senator Kemp Hannon’s office in the form of a reimbursement grant from the state in the amount of $90,000.
As of Monday, Oct. 5, the village began issuing railroad parking permits for the 2009/2010 year. The annual fee is $150 (this equates to approximately 60 cents per day).
Permits may be obtained at the Village Business Office, 351 Stewart Avenue. Residents who already possess a 2008/09 permit will receive a renewal application by mail, which may be returned to the village either by mail or in person. Please review the information provided and correct any erroneous data and/or complete any missing information. A copy of your vehicle registration must accompany your application and check. The 2008/09 parking permits will be honored until Oct. 31.
