Just a reminder to Village Residents: as we periodically put information in our Newsletters, and on our Website regarding Stormwater Management updates, Chapters 305 & 306 of our Village Code outlines requirements and procedures pertaining to Stormwater Management and Erosion and Sediment control, as required by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The required Stormwater Management MS4 Annual Report for the period ending March 2016 is available on our website, as well as in the Office of the Village Clerk. The MS4 report will also be available at the Annual Meeting for residents to view. Residents are encouraged to review these documents, and if you should have any questions please do not hesitate to call.
The compensation proposed in said budget for the Mayor is $15,000 per year and $7,500 per year for each Trustee.
Attorney Sikowitz, Mayor Scordino and the entire Board thanked Treasurer Valerie Fronzo, and the entire Treasurer’s Department, for working so diligently on this proposed budget. Although many items have increased due to costs imposed on the Village, we are able to maintain the tax rate at 14.93%, without discontinuing any services to our residents. For the third year in a row, there is a 0% increase.
Mayor Scordino opened the meeting to the public; no one approached the Board:
