- An Executive Session has been scheduled to discuss matters of public safety. This will occur before the start of the public session, at 5:45 pm.
- Review of the proposal by the Conservation Advisory Council to limit the use of leaf blowers within the Village. The CAC proposal calls for a ban of gasoline leaf blowers beginning January 1, 2021 with an exemption for Hudson National Golf Course. The CAC would also encourage increased education by the Village on matters of air quality, the environment and noise.
- Discussion on moving the dog park currently located at Black Rock Park to another location in the Village. As a result of several neighbor complaints about the existing dog park, the Village will consider the desirability of relocating it to an area of Croton Landing Park.
- Discussion on the reopening of Village playgrounds. The discussion will focus on the considerations and steps required to make and keep playgrounds safe during the current Covid pandemic and whether the Village can meet these requirements on an ongoing basis.
- Discussion on New York State Executive Order 203 regarding police reform. Police Chief Harper will join the discussion regarding the requirements outlines in the Governor’s Executive Order. The order requires that each municipality with a police department perform a comprehensive review of it s current policing operations and develop a plan to improve these strategies to address community needs. The plan, which requires community input, must be submitted to NYS for review and approved by April 1, 2021.
