Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and giving thanks. As I look at our Town I see so much to be thankful for. We have an abundance of beauty, breathtaking vistas and amazing recreational opportunities. We have three incredibly vibrant Villages and seven extraordinary Hamlets that are the heart of the Town. We have police, volunteer fire and ambulance services that keep us safe. We have a world class hospital to keep us healthy. We have the largest farm economy in Orange County that supplies us with fresh food and farm experiences. We have exceptional educational facilities to nurture the next generation of citizens. We also have countless entrepreneurs willing to risk their time and money to build their dreams here in our Town. Most of all we have an engaged citizenship willing to roll up their sleeves to do the work necessary to maintain the specialness that is Warwick. Much to be thankful for indeed. Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
It’s that time of year again. I would like to remind residents of the Town’s snow regulations:
The parking of vehicles is hereby prohibited on all highways and other public property of the Town at any time during inclement winter weather from Nov. 1 through Apr. 1 of the succeeding year. Vehicles in violation of this article will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Any property owner who fails to remove snow and/or ice from sidewalks adjoining his property within 24 hours after a snowfall and any person who throws, shovels, plows or places snow or ice onto a public street, highway or right-of-way shall be guilty of a violation and subject to a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 days, or by both said fine and imprisonment.
The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thurs., Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, located at 132 Kings Hwy. in Warwick.
