Village Of Sackets Harbor

June 08, 2010: 2010 June Mayor's Report


The Village Board selected Don Dimonda as its citizen of the year.  Don consistently donates his time to Village concerns and supports many of the local initiatives so important to our Village.  Please take a moment and thank Don for his leadership and organizational support of the Galloo Island Wind Farm Project as well as his spearheading the LDC clean up of the Augsbury Oil Farm property.


Currently we have a new sewer plant under construction and paid for with funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  Until recently, the Board has been working under preliminary approval for the same funding for a new Drinking Water Plant.  The ARRA funding has been withdrawn but the Village Trustees will continue to work with USDA on this project, in hopes of reinstating a similar funding program and completing the work on the Water plant.


George McCulloch informed the Board that funding has been obtained the funding to bid the rehabilitation construction on the Christ Episcopal Church in the Spring of 2011.  This is excellent news for one of our Village’s most historic and beautiful buildings.


Stoodley Park Tot Lot continues to see improvements with new picnic tables and benches, plus plans for an entrance garden facing E. Main Street.  The park is especially built for toddlers with smaller sized swings and equipment; please remind your older children to respect the facilities, be mindful of the neighbors and pick up their trash.  The lot closes at dusk and because of some incidents with vandalism, will be closely monitored by Village Police.


One last reminder - the beautiful Spring weather has brought rain and sunshine to our lawns and the grass and foliage are growing, growing, growing.  Please remember that lawn and lot maintenance is required by law and grass must be kept less than 10 inches tall.
