This Week In The Villages: The children’s playground at Nyack’s Memorial Park will be getting new sprinklers next spring. Nyack Hospital has a new Director for Emergency Medicine. Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a law with ramifications for Clarkstown taxpayers. And it’s 18 days and counting until the north span of the new Tappan Zee Bridge is open for business.
Village of Nyack
The Nyack Park Conservancy and the the Village of Nyack have received a $200,000 grant from the New NY Bridge Community Benefits Fund to replace the children’s sprinklers in Memorial Park with a zero depth splash pad. The splash pad installation will add an aesthetically pleasing and highly useful facility to the park. The Nyack Park Conservancy hopes to the new sprinklers online for Memorial Day 2018.
Nyack Hospital has appointed Jeffrey S. Rabrich, DO, FACEP Medical Director for Emergency Medicine. Dr. Rabrich is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and subspecialty Boarded in EMS Medicine. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and member of the Emergency Medicine Faculty on the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners.
It’s not too late. Take the Nyack Waterfront survey and share your river front ideas.
The Village of Nyack Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) wants to know: Where do we go from here? They want to hear from residents, visitors, business owners and Hudson River fans throughout the region. Share your river views in a 10 minute online survey. Don’t delay: survey period closes mid-August.
Town of Clarkstown
Governor Cuomo signed legislation to help Clarkstown taxpayers and it was adopted by the town board at a special meeting. The bill limits the shift between classes of taxable property in the Town of Clarkstown. Fluctuations between commercial and residential tax classes can lead to confusing tax increases for homeowners and businesses. This legislation limits those shifts in the Town of Clarkstown to 1% a year, smoothing out the effects on taxpayers. Clarkstown is the first town in Rockland County to enact this legislation.
