The Town Board wishes you all a very blessed Passover and Easter season!


Please note: Town Hall will be closed on Friday April 18. Regular business hours resume on Monday, April 21.

Thanks to all who attended the annual Easter Egg Hunt last Saturday, April 12.  What a glorious day, filled with sunshine and cheer!  Our deepest appreciation to all our volunteers who made the day possible: Donna Lenhart, our invaluable administrative assistant in the Recreation Department;, Ralph & Sylvia Holt, Mr. & Mrs. Lustwig, Mr. & Mrs. Ennessar, Karen Swanson, Max Dao.  Special kudos and thanks to the Hughsonville Fire District Explorers and Mrs. Annaliese Spinelli for their assistance in decorating the gazebo for the Easter Bunny and setting up the Town Hall lawn.

We would be lost without our groundskeeper, Joe DeRosa, Jr. who coordinates so many activities, keeps order, and does it with a smile!  Thank you, one and all!


The next Town Board meeting will be held on April 28 at 7:30 pm.  All are welcome to attend. Please check the Town's Website for the agenda.



Council Woman Czarniecki has renewed her call for volunteers to serve on the Recycle Center Advisory Committee.  This is very important, as we now face the challenges with disposal of e-waste and the accompanying fees for disposal.  Please call the Supervisor's office if you are thinking of volunteering.

Should you need to speak to the Town Supervisor or a Town Board member, use the contact form on the website or call Town Hall and we will set up a time to meet.   Main #: 297-4158   Supervisor: 297-2744
