THE GAZETTE: CROTON RIVER CORRIDOR 'OVERWHELMED' BY WEEKEND HEAT WAVE
--Situation described as chaos; the overwhelming majority were not residents of the Village of Croton, descended on 3.2 mile long corridor.
--Parked vehicles made it difficult for residents in the area to drive in or out of their driveways.
--Numerous reports of people trespassing on private property; steep slopes show signs of erosion from foot traffic; many left garbage behind in their wake; vehicles parked illegally despite signage, tow-away zones, etc.
--Some of the residents who spoke at the meeting took the opportunity to voice opposition to a proposal from the village's Diversity and Inclusion advisory committee to open village parks to non residents--at least when it comes to Silver Lake.
There is much more to the article. Again, the paper is on sale just about everywhere. Residents who have a problem/questions/issues with the content of the Gazette article should speak to the paper's editor and/or watch the 7/22 meeting on demand at the village website.
