OSSINING, NY — May 6, 2019 — A number of us are in Cooperstown right now attending the Annual NY Conference of Mayors (NYCOM) Meeting. The workshops and programs we attend address municipal challenges ranging from the mundane to game changing ideas. This experience is about building relationships and bringing home what we learn from leaders across NY to improve Ossining. NYCOM is a non-partisan organization that provides its member municipalities with training and support services throughout the year, as well as representing the needs of municipal governments to Governor Cuomo and Albany legislators.
At last week’s legislative session the Village Board appointed Karen D’Attore to be the new Village Manager. Ms. D’Attore appointment begins on June 10. Click here to read details about the exciting news.
Open Office Hours with the Mayor will take place tomorrow from 10am-12Noon in the Board of Trustees office on the first floor of Village Hall. No appointment is necessary, and all are welcome to discuss any topic, concern or idea of interest to you.
Have a burning question or idea, at any hour of the day or night?… Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Board of Trustees (email@example.com) or Acting Village Manager Paul Fraioli (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This week’s work session opens with a continuing discussion of the engineering and design of a generator to be installed at the Holla Hose fire house. Click here to view this week’s full agenda.
Work sessions are forums when the Village Board meets with staff and experts to become informed on potential action to be taken, and generally is not open for public comment. However, the public is invited to attend in person or to watch the meeting on television, the village website, or YouTube.

Prepping to Pave!
If you’ve driven down Underhill Road recently, you’ve seen the Public Works Team preparing for the upcoming paving season. A preliminary step to resurfacing this roadway is to raise the grade of the manhole covers so that they will be flush with the level of the roadway when it is paved this spring.
