- Review of Village’s Financial statements by auditor. Alan Kassey from O’Connor Davies Accountants and Auditors, will present and answer questions on the Villages Financial Audit for fiscal year ending May 31, 2017.
- Discussion on feasibility of solar canopies at Croton Harmon Train Station. No backup documentation is included for this topic.
- Discussion on potential ban on Single-Use Plastic Bags in the Village. The Board was asked to take up this issue by the local Croton Climate Initiative (CCI), a group of environmentally concerned residents. They note that many communities in Westchester and the metropolitan area have adopted re-useable bag bans and encourage Croton to do so as well.. CCI has been working during the past year on getting support from residents and businesses in the Village. They are generally following the model set by the Town of New Castle. The Board Agenda on the Village’s website has links to the various bans enacted by New Castle, Villages of Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Hastings-on-Hudson as well as the City of Rye.
- Discussion of upcoming Diversion and Inclusion initiatives in the Village. Trustee Amy Attias has been working with local residents who are interested in developing some initiatives locally to support diversity and inclusion. These will be described and discussed by the Board.
- Discussion on the future of the Village Newsletter. No backup is available for this discussion.
