First and foremost, I would like to thank the residents of South Nyack for their trust and confidence in electing me as their Mayor. The Board and I fully intend to keep the characteristics and integrity of our village intact during and after the building of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
While in office only a short time, we have been able to negotiate with New York State and TZ Constructors, LLC to keep the electronic toll booths permanently in Westchester and only temporarily on the Rockland side during the construction period. This has been mainly due to the diligence and perseverance of our newly formed South Nyack Task Force.
Our vision for the future is economic sustainability for our village. We cannot continue to rely solely on the property taxes of our residents. Exit 10 has been a mess and unappealing in our residential community for decades. We are looking to the State to assist us in securing funds for a feasibility study of better uses of that area.
On a final note, both the Board and I intend to keep you updated on any and all happenings that concern our village whether it be the bridge construction or local happenings.
