Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack

SCHODACK – I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This report, published every month since I took office in 2016, is an example of my commitment to keeping residents informed of the activities of the Schodack Town Board. All Town Board meetings can be viewed live or at a later date at: https://townhallstreams.com/towns/schodack.

I hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy. For continued updates on how COVID-19 is impacting our town services, please visit: www.schodack.org.

On Memorial Day, we privately honored our military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. While the annual Memorial Day Parade in Castleton and the Music in the Park series were cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions, I look forward to resuming these important community events next year.

During May, the Town Board approved the 2020 Road Program. Roads scheduled to be resurfaced with hot-mix asphalt are: Best Road, Brookview Station Road and Silver Bridge Road. Crack fill/single chip seal treatments will be applied on Bunker Hill Road, Kingman Road and Rohloff Road. Thank you to our Highway Department workers for their dedicated service to maintaining over 100 miles of town-owned roads.

As the Capital Region enters Phase 1 of reopening, it is important that we remain vigilant in protecting ourselves and others by continuing to follow social distancing guidelines and wearing masks in public. Thank you to the everyday heroes who kept our communities safe, healthy and running throughout the worst of this crisis.

Recently, I joined other local elected officials and school district leaders in volunteering for the Town of Schodack and Schodack Central School District food drive to benefit The Anchor Food Pantry. These are very challenging times for many local families and we are grateful for the tremendous show of support by our residents.

Please continue to stay safe, everyone.

– Tracey Rex, Schodack Town Board
