a.  Email from John Munson, Fire Council Secretary, regarding membership changes in the fire department.   
Mr. Munson updates the Village on new members and changes in current members status as required. 

b. Inter-Municipal Agreement from Westchester County Refuse Disposal District No. 1 for Residential Food Scrap Transportation & Disposal Program.  Westchester County is offering an Inter-Municipal Agreement to municipalities for the purpose of collecting and disposing food scraps.  Under the IMA, the Village would determine the method of collection which must be in 64-gallong “Toters”.  The County would collect and transport the collected food scraps at no charge to the Village.

c. Email from Rose Cappa announcing Vincent Duffy has been accepted into the Westchester County Senior Hall of Fame Class of 2020.   The County’s Senior Hall of Fame, Vince Duffy, has been accepted.  A ceremony will be held on December 4, 2020.

d. Email from Joseph Martinelli, adjutant of Fox-Eklof American Legion Post 505, regarding Veterans Day ceremony.  The Fox-Ekloff Post has decided to make this year’s Veterans’ Day ceremony very low key.  Those who wish can meet at 5-corners at 11 am.  However, Mr. Martinelli provides information on the Stand Up For Veterans movement in NYS to occur at 7 pm on November 11.  Everyone is encouraged to open their window or door and play the national anthem so others can hear. 


a.      Consider scheduling a public hearing to consider the adoption of Local Law Introductory No. 7 of 2020 to create a new Chapter 158, Masks and Face-Coverings, in the Code of the Village of Croton-on-Hudson for November 16, 2020, at 6 PM, via Zoom videoconference.   The proposed law, similar to  a New Castle law, and based on several Executive Orders by the Governor of NYS, would require face coverings on both public and private property when 6 foot distancing cannot be maintained.  

b.      Consider scheduling a public hearing on the special use permit application from Ralph Rossi and Philip Spagnoli for the construction of a multi-residential building at 25 S. Riverside Avenue for December 7, 2020, at 6 PM via Zoom videoconference.  This calls for a Public Hearing on the proposal for a 39- residential unit building at the site of the former Croton Hardware building.

c.       Consider declaring the Board of Trustees to be lead agency under SEQRA for the amended special use permit application and the new special use permit application from the Hudson National Golf Club for the club use of the reduced property and the tier 3 solar energy project, respectively, and refer such applications to the Waterfront Advisory Committee for review.   This application requires amendments to several existing permits.  After receiving no objections from the Planning Board, the Board of Trustees would become the Lead Agency in conducting the SEQRA review of the many aspects of this application. The Waterfront Advisory Committee must determine whether the proposal is consistent with the Village’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) and make a recommendation to the Village Board.

d.      Consider authorizing the Village Treasurer to process a tax refund in the amount of $737.27 for the property located at 13 Wood Road (designated on the tax maps as Section 68.17, Block 003, Lot 050) due to a clerical error made in the increase in assessment.  This is a correction of the error.
