AGENDA

*******************************************************************************************************************************
The COVID-19 Pandemic has created challenges for everyone. We all have a responsibility to slow "community spread" of the virus. Therefore, there will be no public gathering in Town Hall for this meeting. This raises another challenge: how do we hold the public hearings on the agenda remotely? We continue to use the "Zoom" platform. If you want to watch the meeting, you may do so via the Town's Web site or via cable TV as usual as mentioned below. However, if you wish to register to speak at the meeting using Zoom, we have worked out the details. (You may create your own Zoom account if you don't have one for free at https://zoom.us/freesignup/.) Please email PublicHearing@GreenburghNY.com if you want to speak or provide a written comment (up to five minutes) related to a Public Hearing topic. State which hearing(s) in the email. Email PublicComment@GreenburghNY.com if you want to speak or provide written comment (up to three minutes) during Public Comment. If you have a statement you want read, please include the statement with your email.   For Zoom participation, we will contact you with further instructions. - Councilman Francis Sheehan (on behalf of the Zoom technical team)

MOMENT OF SILENCE 

In memory of Major John Daskos (Ret.), who passed away on Friday, December 18, 2020.  He was a member of the 42nd Infantry "Rainbow" Division Association of the U.S. Army National Guard and a member of the Town of Greenburgh Veterans Advisory Committee, which is dedicated to serving Veterans in our community, and throughout Westchester County.  He was also an active member of the Scarsdale American Legion Post 52 and belonged to numerous Veteran organizations.  

In memory of Peter Woods, who passed away on January 9, 2021, was a remarkable human being, a 9/11 hero, a Hartsdale Fire Commissioner, a devoted leader of Sacred Heart Church and an exceptionally nice person. His passing is heartbreaking to the community. He spoke passionately about his experiences on 9/11 at our annual 9/11 memorial ceremonies.  He fought for safety enhancements on Central Avenue near Sacred Heart Church and did so much more. He was an exceptional human being, had a positive attitude about life, a model citizen and an inspiration.

In memory of the 383,731+ individual victims of COVID-19, who have died in the United States, 1,974,176+ deaths worldwide, each leaving family members and friends too soon
