Mayor’s Corner

Dennis Leahy Mayor of Maybrook

Dear Residents,

I want to thank all of the residents who came out to vote and supported me on Election Day. Your text messages, phone calls and emails of support truly meant a lot to me. It truley inspires me and you have my promise that I will continue to do everything possible in making our village the best it can be. My door has been and will continue to be open to any resident who wishes to voice his or her concerns. I also would like to congratulate the Deputy Mayor Bob Pritchard on his re-election and Daryl Capozzoli on his election to the Village Board. I look forward to working with both of them along with Trustees Kevin Greany and Trustee Jim Barnett in our efforts to keep Maybrook moving forward!

On March 26, 2018, Village of Maybrook Trustee Noreen Reynolds retired after 23 years of service as a Board Member. She has been our liaison to the George C. Bullis Community Center, Liaison to the Building Department, the Holiday Decorations Committee, Maybrook Day Committee and the Beautification Committee. Trustee Reynolds has been very instrumental in our revitalization efforts of our village. Trustee Noreen Reynolds served as Deputy Mayor for 16 years, 9 of those years were next to me. Noreen is also the first female Deputy Mayor in the Village of Maybrook. As the Mayor of the Village of Maybrook, I want to thank my former Deputy Mayor Noreen Reynolds for her dedication, her service of 23 years to the Village of Maybrook and the residents of our great village. I wish her nothing but the best in health and happiness! Noreen, you made a difference in our village and thank you for your 23 years of service!

Well spring is finally here! Lots of activities in the village parks now that the warmer weather is arriving. Orange County Youth Soccer and the Montgomery Little League are playing games in our village. We will also be hosting the Valley Central Girls Varsity Softball games again here as well!

The Village of Maybrook will be hosting our annual Memorial Day Parade and Service on Monday, May 28th with the parade starting at 9 am and the service immediately following.

I also am very proud to announce that we have a new civic group forming in the Village of Maybrook, the Maybrook Kiwanis Club. The Kiwanis Club is a wonderful non-for profit organization that can make a difference in our village. I’m very pleased to have a civic group starting up in our village and I will support them in any way that I can as I’m sure the rest of the village board will as well. Men and women of all ages are welcome to join and help make a difference in our community. I also would like to mention that residents outside the village are invited to join as well. Those interested in membership can call; David Morse- 845-772-2953 Email: slapshot1371@gmail.com Guy Cusumano– 845-662-1720 Email: Guycusu@gmail.com

This spring, Central Hudson Gas and Electric is installing new gas mains and service lines throughout the village. They are putting in 12 hour days to move the project along. Work is being performed along Route 208 so expect some delays while the work is being performed. Your patience is appreciated. The Village is also in the planning stages of replacing old sidewalks in the village. We are working with Central Hudson Gas and Electric and New York State Department of Transportation to move this project along. Residents will be informed of the upgrades as we proceed.

Water and Sewer Bills can now be paid online! Many residents have asked over the years about being able to pay online for convenience and to avoid penalties. There is a link on the Village of Maybrook Website on the top right side.

Please stay in touch with the Village of Maybrook website at www.villageofmabrook.com and the Village of Maybrook Facebook Page for important information and upcoming village events in the village!

Hope everyone enjoys the spring weather and all the best to everyone!

Mayor Dennis K. Leahy
