A Message from the Mayor
Summer is finally here! With the return of summer, we are starting to get back to a sense of normal around our Village. I am pleased that we have taken serious steps within our community to combat the virus and re-open our Village.
Our first of its kind Village COVID-19 infection and antibody testing site for residents helped test thousands of village residents allowing us to bring down and keep the infection rate in the Village to the lowest it has been since the start of the pandemic.
Our downtown district didn’t just survive the pandemic—it thrived. I would like to give a special thanks to every resident who visited our restaurants and shops—your support made sure that our local businesses were able to stay open during this time. This summer, I would encourage residents to enjoy all that our downtown has to offer.
While we have made significant progress combating COVID-19 The Village Board and I have continued to move ahead with many projects to improve our Village, all while keeping your Village property taxes frozen. Our 2021 Capital Public Works projects are in full swing with many curb replacements and road improvements—including partnering with National Grid to help us cover a share of the costs for resurfacing the major roads they needed to open up to replace their aging infrastructure.
Spring brought with it new trees and plantings along Park Blvd, including our new Christmas Tree, which will be enjoyed for generations to come. The improvements at Brady Park are complete and we invite everyone to come give our improved Basketball courts and Baseball field a try.
As we move forward, this summer the Village will be continuing the re-opening phase of all of our programs, activities and events, including the Brady Park Senior Center, so make sure to follow us on Facebook or signup for our email list to keep up to date.
As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call us at Village Hall.
There are always exciting events and celebrations happening in the Village! For more information, please see our press releases below.
