BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. -- Village Manager Philip E. Zegarelli is reminding residents that Briarcliff’s “mini” parking lot will be closed while a fuel leakage problem is being working on.
Fuel leaked under the pocket park’s lot from a nearby gas station, Zegarelli said in his latest report.
The village is working with the state Department of Environmental Conservation to clean up the site by the coming spring.
In other items in the village manager’s report:
- Dead trees: Zegarelli is warning motorists to be on the alert this week while the Westchester County Parks Department and the state Department of Transportation remove dead trees along Pleasantville Road and southbound Route 9A.
