Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
THE FOLLOWING LETTER APPEARED IN THE 6/19 EDITION OF THE GAZETTE AND IS ALSO RE-PRINTED HERE BY REQUEST:
To the editor:
In thinking over the part-time mayor's action in giving himself and his family a $22,000-plus health insurance policy paid for by the village which is only available to village employees for full-time employment, it seems to us, that even if it's legal, it's not ethical.
In the one hundred and sixteen-year history of the Village of Croton-on-Hudson, this is the first time a part-time employee has taken advantage of the taxpayers in such an arrogant and high-handed manner.
We feel terribly disappointed and betrayed by Mayor Leo Wiegman, whom we had respected.
Bob and Ann Reibel
