Supervisor Report through 11-6-2014


From the desk of:

Keith A. Langley, Supervisor

Town of East Greenbush

As we head into the holiday season and reflect this month on things we are grateful for; I would like to take the time to list things I am grateful for here in East Greenbush.

  •   Our Veterans- Thank you to all who have or are currently serving.  I look forward to honoring you all on Nov. 11th.

  •   The opportunity to introduce a 0% tax increase budget for the second consecutive year.

  •   The tremendous progress being made on the Waste Water Treatment Plant.

  •  The new businesses in our Town and the loyal Businesses who remain here and make improvements. The Stewarts Shop on Columbia Turnpike has opened their new building.  If you haven’t been in yet, stop by. Peebles and Starbucks have opened their doors here in East Greenbush, as well as, many other small businesses.

  •   The Columbia High School Students.  CHS just finished up their fall athletic season with many teams going to state championships and are gearing up for their winter season.  Be sure to go out and support these students.   The amount of talented students living here in East Greenbush is astonishing.  Their academic, art, music, and sport achievements do not go unnoticed. Many CHS students volunteer their time here in Town on a daily basis and I am proud to have them here.

  •   The Elementary and Middle School Students who brighten our day throughout Town and the Toddlers and Preschoolers, many of whom came by Town Hall to Trick or Treat.

  •   The Seniors in our Community who offer us knowledge about our Town History

  •   The Town of East Greenbush Staff.  The Department of Public Works has been working hard to improve the look and safety of Town Hall and downstairs at the Police Department.  The Banners hanging out front look great and it has become a much cleaner and welcoming building all together.   I thank every department and every employee who worked diligently this year to cut spending.

  •  Last, but not least, the Residents of East Greenbush.  You have shown throughout the last year your care and commitment to our town.  While everyone may have different opinions, everyone cares about East Greenbush.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.
