Town of North Greenbush News

It’s been a busy month here in North Greenbush. Supervisor Joe Bott would like to thank the Memorial Day Parade Committee for their work for the largest celebration in history to honor our deceased service men and women. Special thanks to Deputy Supervisor Kelly Hoffman, Councilwoman Jessica Merola and Kathy Allen for their efforts in organizing the parade. Thank you to all of our veterans who participated, the community groups, bands, emergency services personnel and especially our police department who assisted in keeping the parade route moving and safe. 

The morning ceremonies were a solemn reminder of the number of service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you to members of the American Legion and Clerk Janice Kerwin. A reminder our Summer Concert Series starts Sunday, June 26th at 6pm behind town with “Harmony Rocks”. At the recent town board meeting, summer camp staff were approved as we begin what will be a wonderful experience for our campers. 

The board approved the installation of two electric vehicle charging stations behind town hall. This will also assist the town in getting closer to Bronze Status for our climate smart designation, headed by Councilwoman Merola. We are looking for a laborer in the water department; please visit our website if interested. 

The Route 4 traffic improvement project is almost complete. The Route 43 water project will resume in the upcoming weeks, pending delivery of water pipe delivery. A friendly reminder to watch for our trucks as our highway crews are out performing work this summer. 

As always, please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about news happening in our town.
