          A Meeting of the Town Board of the Town of Greenburgh was held in the Meeting Room, Greenburgh Town Hall, 177 Hillside Avenue, Greenburgh, New York 10607, at 7:30 PM, Wednesday, November 21, 2022
             
PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
             
MOMENT OF SILENCE

In memory of Carole Walker, who suddenly and sadly passed away on Tuesday, November 15th. Carole was a dedicated Town Employee who assisted with the Zoning Board of Appeals for over 16 years. Carole also worked closely with the Historic & Landmark Preservation Board. She worked directly with hundreds of residents each year, helping them with an omnipresent smile and pleasant demeanor. Our thoughts are with her family, of whom she so proudly and often spoke.

In memory of the 1,064,975+ individual victims of COVID-19 who have died in the United States, 6,596,542+ deaths worldwide, each leaving family members and friends too soon

In memory of the people in Ukraine killed during Russia's invasion and relentless intentional targeted bombing of civilians in apartment buildings, hospitals, train stations, schools and children centers, with mass graves being found after invaded areas have been retaken, and now deliberate bombings of powerplants to prevent civilians from heating their homes during the harsh winter, all in Russia's effort to destroy Ukraine and its people, who are forced to fight for their land, their freedom, and general democratic principles. May they rest in peace and peace be restored to Ukraine.
