Schodack Supervisor’s Report for May 2021

SCHODACK – After a lot of hard work and planning, I’m pleased to announce that the Town Hall is now open to residents without appointment. My thanks to my fellow Town Board members for their assistance in getting us to this point and to Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin and his department of health for offering vaccinations to all of our employees. While we still encourage people to call first and see if their needs can be met without them having to come in, we feel opening the doors and allowing our residents full access to their Town Hall is an important step in returning to a state of normalcy post-COVID.

Our Spring cleanup weekend will be held on May 13th, 14th, and 15th at the Transfer Station from 7:00am-3:00pm. In addition to the normal rate, certain items will be accepted at a discount. I encourage everyone to check the Transfer Station section on our web page and make use of this opportunity to get some spring cleaning done.

Registration for our Summer camp is underway now through the end of the month. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and limitations from our hosting partners, we have had to modify how camp is going to work. In order to accommodate cleaning protocols, camp will only be half-days this summer. We understand this is not an ideal situation for many and we wish things were different as well. In an effort to make up for some of the lost opportunities, our Recreation Director Sheila Golden has organized a series of additional camps that will take place at our Town Park for various age groups opposite their scheduled summer camp times. For more information on these camps and how to register, please visit our youth recreation section of the Town’s web page. Again, we know this situation isn’t ideal and we look forward to a normal camp next year, but we thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to provide our youth with some summer activities in spite of COVID.

To all the moms out there, I want to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day!

North Greenbush Update from Supervisor Bott, Deputy Supervisor Hoffman and Councilwoman Merola

NORTH GREENBUSH – Happy Spring! Supervisor Joe Bott is proud to announce our Annual Memorial Day Ceremonies on Monday, May 31st. We will begin our first wreath laying ceremony at Bloomingrove Cemetery at 9:45 am, then to Bloomingrove Monument at 10 am, “Bucky” Egan Monument at 10:15 am, St. Jude’s at 10:30 am, American Legion at 10:45 am, Evergreen Cemetery at 11 am and Town Hall at 11:15 am. All are invited to attend. This tradition of replacing the American Flag with a new flag each year is a solemn reminder to our veterans who gave so much for our Country. New veterans banners and a few that were damaged during the winter will be hung before the upcoming holiday. Supervisor Bott, Deputy Supervisor Kelly Hoffman and Councilwoman Jessica Merola attended the Earth Day Clean-up at Snyder’s Lake. We attended Opening Day Ceremonies at Classie Lassies Softball. Joe welcomed residents, coaches and volunteers. Kelly has been supporting the league for almost 20 years and welcomed the players and thanked board members for their commitment. We joined the St. Jude’s community in attending their Annual Awards Dinner, presenting Kristine Hoffay, Joseph Kruczlnicki and Mr. and Mrs. John Dalmata with commendations as this years award recipients. The Rte 4 traffic improvement project is on schedule with the intersection at Bloomingrove being complete in 3 weeks. Next intersection is Rte 4 and Winter while simultaneously working on a temporary road at Rte 4 and Williams in preparation for construction of the roundabout. The Rte 43 water project has been awarded and construction will start shortly. Joe, Kelly and Jessica continue to work with the Lake Association to address the future of the jewel of North Greenbush, Snyder’s Lake. Maintaining a healthy body of water takes commitment and we are working together to address a long term Lake Management Plan. More to come on this exciting initiative. Be well and enjoy Spring!
