Dear Residents: We hope all of you are well, and that you remain so as we continue through this crisis. As we are sure you are aware, the Governor has issued a series of Executive Orders restricting the workforce that is permitted at any work site. New guidelines have been issued pertaining to construction work. While these guidelines have not been put in place by our Board, we wanted to make you aware of them to make sure any difficulties can be avoided. For the purposes of our Village, under these guidelines if construction work is being conducted on your property it must be halted unless it fits in one of the following categories: (1) the construction is essential because it involves a project necessary to protect health and safety of the occupant; (2) a certain portion of work at the site must be completed before closing the site because it would be unsafe to close the site otherwise, or (3) the work is being conducted by a single worker, who is the sole employee/worker on the job site. Please take steps to halt projects as required unless they fit within one of the three categories listed. Failure to … Read more
March 25, 2020 Dear Village Residents: Over the past week, our everyday reality has changed dramatically. I have seen a lot in my lifetime, so it is not every day that I say we are in uncharted waters, but we are. You are all aware that the state, county, and town have all declared a State of Emergency in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We must all do our part immediately to reduce the spread of this virus. I would like to take a moment to first thank the doctors, nurses, emergency personnel and many others who are putting their lives and the lives of their families at risk by responding to this crisis. All residents should be self-isolating themselves and their families by limiting interactions with others and keeping at least 6 feet between you and others. If you feel ill you should stay home and contact your doctor. Note that you can have the virus without exhibiting symptoms and thereby pass the virus on to others, further emphasizing the need for self-isolation. Even if you feel fine, you can put others at risk. I beg you to follow the rules to help protect others: your neighbor who … Read more

we advise strongly that you remind your children of the following: A stranger is ANYONE they don’t know; They should not wear any type of headphones while outside; this will make them oblivious to any vehicle or person stalking them; They should never get into anyone’s car without a parent’s permission; They should never take candy or gifts from a stranger. They should never help strangers, no matter how sympathetic they might appear, because adults should NOT ask kids to do things that other adults can do for them; They should run away from a car that pulls up beside them if they don’t know the driver; They should never invite people into their home without a parent’s permission; When in doubt, they should scream as loud as they can to attract attention; They should tell an adult if a stranger is taking a picture of them.
