BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- The following is the Village Manager’s Report from Philip E. Zegarelli:
The new Comfort Station will be open for use starting this Saturday, May 21. All sports fields/playing areas will be open for this weekend. With fickle weather expected this weekend, be sure to check with your coach to confirm each day’s activities.
We have completed the pool and pool deck restoration at Law Park Pool. Opening Day remains scheduled for Monday, May 30, after the Memorial Day parade and Law Park ceremonies. The village has settled on a “food wagon” vendor to provide food services during pool hours.
The formal dedication and open house of our Community Center will immediately follow the American Legion/Briarcliff Manor Fire Department-sponsored May 30 Memorial Day ceremonies. The Community Center will be named after former village Mayor William J. Vescio. Further details and additional information regarding the occasion will be forthcoming.
Consolidated Edison work marches on as the protracted, high pressure gas main replacement project continues. The utility has also been directed to “re-set” noisy road plates that have shifted over time. The road plates are in place largely to facilitate two main project components: the valve interconnections of the main lines and the replacement connections to individual residences and facilities.
Separately, the village is working with Con Ed on a program to jointly pay for a full pavement restoration of disturbed roads after construction settlement.
Majestic Mosaics, an art exhibit by Pauline Rockett-Dietz featuring beautifully crafted images of cityscapes, portraits, animal studies and more, will be on display on the second floor of the library through May 31.
The water department has said that there will be hydrant or transmission main flushing in the coming week.
