Town Announcements

July 15, 2015 - We will be doing another scheduled water line repair on Kretch Circle today, July 15th.  The Town web site should note that the repair will take place between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.  As noted previously, the outage will be kept to a minimum and if the water is turbid when the pressure is returned, the resident can run the water and it will clear.  It will remain sanitary at all time.

June 22, 2015 - The Stormwater Management Program 2014 Annual Report for March 10, 2014 - March 9 2015 is now available.


News and Updates from Supervisor Barbara Gutzler

 

The next regular Town Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 10, 2015 @ 7:30 pm.

Please note that the Town Board has cancelled its meeting of August 24, 2015.

 

     I am pleased to announce that the Town of Wappinger has adopted the "Climate Smart Communities Pledge".  The Town pledges to find ways te reduce energy consumption and find ways to use renewable energy.  A full explanation of this pledge can be found on the website of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation at www.dec.ny.gov.  

     Additionally, the Town Board, via the same pledge, has authorized the reactivation of the Conservation Advisory Council to plan actions to meet the elements of the Climate Smart Communities pledge. Later this week, I should have more information about the CAC, so anyone who is interested in serving on this council can contact the Supervisor's office.

Attention:

Effective July 1, 2014, the Town Recycle Center will no longer accept the older-style CRT television sets.  Please do not bring these sets into the Recycle Center. You will be turned away.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but new regulations are making municipal disposal of old CRT televisions too costly.

Best Buy at the Poughkeepsie Galleria will accept these TV's with screens up to 32" for free disposal.  Simply drive up to Best Buy and go to Customer Service for assistance.  For further information, call Best Buy at 298-8077.
