Supervisor's Report through 9/24/2014


From the desk of:

                   Keith A. Langley, Supervisor

                                    Town of East Greenbush


It’s hard to believe that September is almost over, and that fall is upon us.  I hope that everyone has had a safe and happy start back to school.  While everyone has been busy adjusting to school routines, my office has been hard at work preparing for the annual budget for the Town of East Greenbush, among many other daily tasks.

Patriot’s Day to me, is an important day of remembrance.   I was happy to be invited back to the American Legion to memorialize the day with some of our Town’s veterans, volunteer fire fighters and residents.  What happened on September 11th, shook our country to the core, but the people came together and have proven that we have unity and strength in our country.   Thirteen years later, it is humbling to see communities still coming together to remember.  We must always remember.

On Saturday, September 13th, our Community and Recreations Department hosted the annual Saturday in the Park event.  Both Jessica and Tracie put a lot of hard work into organizing this event, and despite the weather, it was still a pretty successful day.  Lots of vendors stayed and even the bands played to try to make the most of the rainy Saturday.  I hope that everyone that came out had a good time, and we look forward to nicer weather next year!

At September’s Town Board Meeting, held on September 17th, the Board accepted the resignations of two stellar employees, we are sad to see them go.  Sergeant Michael Smith, a police officer with the East Greenbush Police Department since 2002, has retired from our police force for a new venture.  We greatly appreciate Sgt Smith’s dedication and hard work during his time with the Town.  Best of luck to you and your family!  Joe LaMountain, has served as a laborer with the Department of Public Works since 2004, helping people at the Transfer Station, and always provided great customer service! We wish Joe a happy and long retirement! The Town is saddened to see both of these men go, but happy to see that both are looking forward to what life has in store for them!

I am very happy to announce the grand opening of the newest Peebles location in the Town of East Greenbush.  I was fortunate enough to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony with representatives from the Town, County, Chamber of Commerce and many members of the community.  I look forward to Peebles becoming a staple in our community.  I hope that our residents enjoy having a retail store such as Peebles in our community, saving them from having to drive over to the mall!

Supervisor Langley's 2015 Proposed Town Budget
On October 2nd, I presented the Town Board with my budget, the 2015 Tentative Budget.  This year I am proposing a 0% tax increase on the residents of East Greenbush.  This is being accomplished through conservative estimates on several revenue sources and tighter controls on spending.  It will not affect any Town services or day to day operations.  A 0% tax increase in these continued economic times is responsible and has the Town performing a similar "belt tightening" as the individuals and families we serve.
