Very soon you will see individuals in the Village who work for Tighe & Bond and they will be conducting a stormwater infrastructure project out in the field.  In July there will be a public meeting regarding this, keep an eye out for the date and time.


Sesquicentennial is coming up!  Events will take place on June 17, 18, and 19.  The website does have links to the full schedule, and info for the swag collection is available on the Sesquicentennial Facebook page.  The weather looking ahead appears as though it will be fabulous.  There will be many, many events throughout the weekend.  Saturday will bring the parade, and also from 6-9 the block party.  Trish Tieger and 30+ committee members have done a wonderful job.  Also, Mayor Griffith thanked Tivoli’s DPW, Tivoli Fire Department, the American Legion and the Masonic Lodge for their deep involvement in making this a success.  You will not want to miss the fireworks to end the event-filled weekend on Sunday evening, June 19!  Many thanks to our donors!!!
