South Nyack, Mar 18 — First time candidate and recent US citizen Andrew Goodwillie was the top finisher among four candidates for two open trustee positions on the South Nyack Village Board. Incumbent Alain Leinbach finished second claiming the other trustee spot, edging out Ann Hekker Weiss by 12 votes and three percentage points.
Nyack Mayor Jen White hosts her monthly “downtown” meeting for Nyack businesses on Mon Dec 3 at 9a on the 2nd floor of Nyack’s Village Hall. This informal meeting on issues important to residents and businesses is open to the public.
Nyack, Nov 27 — You can park for free if you know where to go in Nyack between now and Jan 2. Nyack’s Village Board, working with the Chamber of Commerce of the Nyacks and ACADA have declared a parking holiday for the municipal lot on Artopee Way behind the Riverspace building by Main Street through the rest of 2012.
Nyack, May 1 (REVISED 1:18p) — Beginning May 15, people who park in the village need to remember just two numbers: 11 and 6. Feed the meters between those hours and you are good to go…shop, dine or walk around downtown. The new twist is that the 11 and 6 plan is 24/7: 11a-6p and 11p-6a.
Nyack, Jan 26 –On Saturday and Sunday mornings after the bars close, Nyack’s sidewalks are a mess, covered in cigarette butts, litter — and worse. Nyack’s Village Board is considering a revised parking plan that would generate revenue to clean up the streets while also giving the evening restaurant business a shot in the arm.
The Village Board will hold a Workshop Meeting tonight at 6:30p to discuss changing the current 11a-9p parking hours to 11a-6p and 11p-6a.

Have you ever got a parking ticket in Nyack? It is pretty annoying and can cost $15 and up for any of the offenses. One possible solution to this problem is to have residential parking passes.

Dear Mayor Kavesh:
At the August 31 Chamber of Commerce/Friends of The Nyacks sponsored candidates forum, the matter of an $11 million grant from the federal government to alleviate parking congestion being rejected by the Village of Nyack was brought to our attention. As I am sure you can understand, some of our members were left with the impression that in your capacity as mayor you led the effort to reject these funds.
Nyack, August 31 — Nyack will forgive all parking tickets issued during Hurricane Irene after numerous complaints were made to village officials. Nyack Parking Authority employees wrote tickets for cars parked on alternate side of the street parking areas during the height of hurricane, when winds were estimated to be in excess of 65 mph and public officials were telling people to stay indoors and out of harm’s way.

Since moving to the Nyack area, I have lost far too many hours wandering around the parking lot of the ginormous Palisades Center trying to find where I left my car. Naturally, I’ve been trying to figure out how to streamline this process.
Main Street in Nyack will undergo a block by block facelift this summer beginning in June. Sidewalks, crosswalks, overhead lighting and trash receptacles will all get a new look complemented by a new road surface in October.
