As the year came to a close, I took stock of all that goes on in our Village of 6500.
As many of you saw during the tax season, our administrative staff is professional, helpful and always in good humor.
The same is true of our Court and Parking Staff and Building Department even under some of the most difficult of circumstances. Our two Justices conduct a court known for its fair and progressive approach.
And our Police Department – what a group of kind, patient and competent officers. (80% of who could be my children!) The leadership at the top by Chief Satriale and Lt. Bunyan lead by example and it is a very cohesive department.
The DPW staff is second to none; most of them stay with the village for decades and take great pride in keeping their village neat, clean and beautiful. They care deeply about the families on their route and worry when they don’t see you.
It is truly an honor and an inspiration to work with people who care so deeply about their jobs and their village and do it with such dignity and competency.
As a result of 2008 and the reset of the financial environment, we now have one of the smallest staffs for our size making their efforts even more admirable and appreciated.
The village also has many boards staffed by volunteers that serve to enhance the quality of life in the Village. They include:
Gary Reetz, Chair
James Murray, Vice Chair
Design Review Committee
Maureen Hackett, Chair
Zoning Board of Appeals
William Fredericks, Chair

The Village simply cannot function without the hundreds of hours of volunteer service given by all of our committee members.
We welcome any resident to offer their time and talents to a board.
Sometimes a certain skill set is helpful, but in general the only requirement is interest and availability.
Please reach out to us via email@example.com. I can guarantee you the work is always interesting and the service gratifying.
