General News: Notes from the Village Board Meeting

May 26, 2019

Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Board of Trustees Business Meeting 05/20/19
By Hannah Comitz

Public Hearing:
Parking on Mountain road is has become an issue which is a hazard to many people. A member from the community is glad to have this issue addressed. The Palisades Interstate Park Commission owns those trails, so none of the trailheads or paths will be removed. There are different abilities and direction signs that are being considered to help guide the public. The public hearing was closed and no parking or standing will be allowed on Mountain road.

Monthly Department Reports:
The village clerk, Jeanne Mahoney, made it a goal to obtain WIFI for the village hall. Two possible bids were obtained and this system will soon be put in, which gives four WIFI access points throughout the building.

The Police Department had been able to make improvements using multiple grants that they have received. The village received a grant from the NRA which helps with training and equipment fees. The village also received a grant that allows for bulletproof vests to be purchased.

The boat docks at the river front were placed back in the water recently.

Resolutions:
The Black Rock liner project had two bidders. There was a tie for the bids for the first time ever that the trustees could recall. The project was awarded after the board had multiple discussions over the benefit of each bidder.
