Village of Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer wrote the following in his column that was published in the Jan. 4 issue of the Warwick Valley Dispatch.
The sanitation contractor will be picking up Christmas Trees every Monday and Thursday in January. The trees will be given to the Breezy Point Inn for their annual bonfire on the lake during the Winter Carnival. The Winter Carnival, sponsored by the Breezy, will be during President’s weekend (Feb. 17-19). Check the Breezy’s website http://www.breezypointinn.com/ for more information.
Last Call for Drawdown Efforts
Effective Sun., Jan. 1, the dam on the south end of Greenwood Lake will officially be closed (mostly closed). The rate at which the lake fills up will depend on weather conditions and precipitation. At this point, if you plan to do any work, you must do it now.
