Happy Holiday Season

As we celebrate the holidays with friends, family and neighbors, the Town Board and staff have been working diligently to finalize the 2019 Town budget. It is a financial plan that details the Town's projected revenues and expenses in a given year. The Town budget is the most important financial document that is reviewed, and ultimately adopted, by the Town Board.  It provides the means by which we fund municipal services, including public safety, facility maintenance, recreation programs, utility infrastructure, road and sidewalk improvements and repairs and capital projects.
 
Since mid-October, when the Tentative Budget was submitted to the Town Board, there have been a series of public work sessions to discuss individual department budgets, along with the review of non-tax revenues and capital projects proposed for the coming year.  The 2019 Preliminary Budget, which reflects changes made to the Tentative Budget, was the subject of a Town Board Public Hearing on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.  Discussion of the preliminary Budget will continue at the next Town Board meeting on Monday, December 17, 2018.  As mandated by law, the Town Board will adopt the 2019 budget no later than December 20, 2018.
 
The 2019 Preliminary Budget provides the funding for the Town to continue its high level of services with attention to the needs of residents and financial responsibility. This budget exhibits our continued stewardship, with conservative financial budgeting, a commitment to maintaining and upgrading infrastructure, planning for the future and implementing and improving sustainability initiatives.  The budget can be found on the Town’s website at www.townofmamaroneckny.org.  
 
I’m pleased to report that the Town continues to be in a strong financial position and we anticipate that this will continue through 2019.  In fact, Moody's Investors Service recently confirmed the Town of Mamaroneck's Aaa financial rating, the highest rating awarded. 

I wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season and new year.

View Town History!

The Town of Mamaroneck has preserved and restored over 30 historical books with the help of funding from a New York State Archives Grant. Town Clerk, Christina Battalia, hosted a grand opening featuring one of these books -- the Town’s Military Registry -- on view in the Town’s newly acquired display case located on the first floor at the Town Center. From marriage registries of the 1880’s to the birth record of one Thompson J.S. Flint, there is something of interest for every history enthusiast. The Town Clerk’s Office plans to rotate the restored historical books for viewing in the display case.  The public is invited to stop in often to view the changing selections.

"Green" Residents of the Month

This month we honor Milja TumSuden, Kristen Vasquez and Alynn Perl (left to right) who together chair the Murray Avenue School's Green Tigers PTA Committee.  They work with 160 students in grades 3 through 5 on environmental issues and initiatives.  Milja says, "My mom was ahead of her time with composting, recycling and adopting a less wasteful lifestyle.  It’s important to me to pass those habits on to the children who are the future of our planet."  Kristen adds that environmental initiatives have always been important to her, but "what gives me hope is encouraging kids to be the impetus for change."   Growing up in Berkeley, CA, Alynn was taught how to be an environmentalist at a young age and she now hopes to pass that same passion for sustainability to other children.
