Town Board Approves Reduction of
Speed Limit on Rte. 94
Warwick Town Supervisor Michael Sweeton announced that he received a notice from the NYS Department of Transportation honoring the Town’s request to reduce the speed limit on Rte. 94 from 380 feet west of Galloway Rd. at the Village line to 500 ft. east of Covered Bridge Rd. for a distance of 2.9 miles down to 45 mph.
“That would make the speed limit a consistent 45 mph through this congested area which makes a lot of sense. New signs will go up as soon as the state can get there” said Supervisor Sweeton.

Vince Copello, chairman of the Friendly Visitor Program (FVP) in Warwick, reported that in the month of May 352 neighbors received volunteer services, 248 hours were provided by volunteer members, and the FVP program currently has 62 volunteers who provide services to 118 neighbors.
