Deputy Mayor Majer


Deputy Mayor Majer mentioned checking out the Tivoli Free Library and their upcoming events.  A Teen Movie Night is right around the corner, do look for that information.  Also, many things are happening with Historic Red Hook.


In Tivoli Bays, there are so many ducks; the dock is not there yet, however, ticks are already back, and if you go to the Bays, be prepared as it is very, very muddy.



Mayor Griffith


The big event of the Sesquicentennial is coming up!  These events will take place on June 17, 18, and 19.  Many plans are in the works, and most likely in April a program will be made available in order to provide insight into the weekend’s activities.  Coming up, also, there will be a FaceBook page, as well as an Online Store.


As a reminder, the D. C. Sheriff’s deputies are patrolling.  We are looking to reduce speed, as well as the frustrating backwards parking, mostly on Montgomery Street.  If law enforcement is necessary, call the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office at (845) 486-3800.


Tivoli’s DPW will begin cleaning up the Village following a long winter.


Also, look for the daffodils, they are on their way up.  Many daffodil bulbs were planted in assorted areas throughout the Village; look for them in the park, along Broadway, and near Monument Hill.

On a motion by Trustee Mangieri and seconded by Trustee Baldino, the meeting was adjourned at 7:29 PM, all in favor.
