CROTON UNITED: A NOVEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER

And now a word from Croton United--their newsletter/:

We want to let our many supporters know that Croton United will continue as an organization—committed to our core values of honesty, openness, integrity, fiscal responsibility and nonpartisanship. Our mission will be to keep residents informed and engaged in our village government and community. Were proud of our record 


A letter in last week's issue of the Gazette: 

We are writing to express our thanks to the residents of Croton who supported us in last week’s election, and to those who have supported Croton United in the last several years since its formation. We wish Brian, Amy and Sherry the best of luck.
Since its beginning, Croton United’s core values have been honesty, openness, integrity, fiscal responsibility and nonpartisanship. We are proud of the record established during our stewardship of the village and hope to see many of our initiatives continued.
We created the Financial Sustainability Committee and implemented its recommended policies, which has resulted in actual reduction of village debt and the costs associated with it.
We worked with the FSC and village staff to finance the acquisition of the new DPW facility in such a way that permitted the village to avoid costly repairs to the existing garage, remove two oil tanks from an environmentally sensitive area and enhance the revenue stream of the parking lot, all while adhering to the FSC’s recommendations concerning limiting debt.
We listened to residents and addressed numerous quality of life issues including installation of a sidewalk and stop sign near a village playground, changing parking regulations in Harmon and in the Upper Village to facilitate a better business environment, adding benches in village parks, ensuring that village warming and emergency centers are equipped with wifi, and making more village recreation space pet-friendly.
We started projects to deal with invasive species in our parks and supported the DEP’s Croton River hydrilla treatment, to ensure that our village recreation space remains available to future generations of Crotonites.
We believe Croton is a better community for our governance.
We look forward to serving our community in other ways in the future, but for now, simply wish to thank you for your support.
Greg Schmidt
Bob Anderson
Roseann Schuyler
Resolution prohibiting additional compensation for Village Trustees:

Last night—during our final board meeting—we adopted a policy stating that “no member of the Board of Trustees may, during their elected or appointed term of office, collect any salary or other compensation from the Village of Croton-on-Hudson arising from any paid employment for work that falls outside of the scope of the duties of members of the Board of Trustees.”

We proposed this policy for the same reason we adopted a policy to stop the practice of using personal email accounts to conduct official village business. Sections of both NYS General Municipal Law and the Village Code recognize that there are rules of ethical conduct for public officers and employees which must be observed if a high degree of moral conduct is to be obtained and if public confidence is to be maintained in our unit of local government. We believe this resolution furthers these aims.

Help spread the word
If you know someone who might want to receive our newsletter, let them know they can sign up here.

CONGRATS JAKE TUTTLE

Congratulations to C.O. Jake Tuttle in  his new career! Jake also serves with Croton E.M.S.

We are so proud of you.

He featured in more than 70 films, largely action roles, and made 100 television appearances during a 45-year career ultimately winning an Academy Award in 1998 for his supporting role as Glen Whitehouse in Affliction.

A capable, rough-hewn leading man, his toothy grin and lanky physique made him a perfect tough guy in numerous leading and supporting roles in westerns and action films such as The Magnificent Seven, Hell Is for Heroes, The Great Escape, Charade, Our Man Flint, read more here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Coburn
