The Town and Villages are helping to support a community based effort called Red Hook Responds to assist our neighbors in need and to solicit individuals who may want to help.

A website called   and a volunteer/help hotline number (845-640-4788) have been established to further those objectives. By sharing this information we hope to be able to reach as many folks as possible, to do what we do best: help each other.

Village Hall is closed until further notice

In the interest of public health in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic Village Hall will be closed to the public starting Wednesday, March 25th and continuing until further notice.

Village Services will continue but to minimize person-to-person contact we believe no one except Village personnel should be using the building. Even our employees will only be performing essential work and  be working at different hours and maintaining social distance as they do. Any of their work which can be conducted from home will be. All municipalities are compelled by the Governor’s Executive Order to do so.

The meeting, held at the Historic Watts dePeyster Hall, was opened at 7:06 pm and a quorum was determined to be present for the conduct of business.

ZBA Attendees:

  • Chair Laura Gail Tyler
  • Tim Lynch
  • Sam Merritt
  • Bob Zises


  • Karen Cleaveland
  • Bob Juliano

The first item of business was to approve the draft minutes from the July 23, 2012 meeting.Bob Zises moved to approve the minutes as presented, Tim Lynch seconded, all in favor. Motion carried.


5111-5115 Route 9G – Application for Interpretation: The next item was the open public hearing which was continued from the June 25, 2012 meeting. It was continued to January 28, 2013 but cancelled due to the weather. It was continued to tonight and the applicant Jack Grumet was informed. Chair Tyler discussed the public hearing with Village attorney Victoria Polidoro and whether it needed to be re-noticed. Chair Tyler spoke with Mr. Grumet who expressed an interest in continuing with the interpretation even though light industry had been removed from the code as a permitted use. He wanted to know if the storage unit would fit under anything else. Under Village of Tivoli Local Law No. 3 of 2012, Section 5.6, B. number 10 states: Drive-in or drive-through windows, self-storage units, motor vehicle sales and rentals, filling stations and other uses not explicitly listed under permitted and special permitted uses in section 231-21 are not permitted. Mr. Grumet will be receiving an email from the Village attorney. Because the application for interpretation is moot, the open public hearing is moot.

Chair Tyler welcomed a new member to the ZBA, Sam Merritt.


Bob Zises moved to adjourn the meeting at 7:18 pm. Sam Merritt seconded, all in favor. Motion carried.

Respectfully submitted,

Claire Roff
