Committees Advance Funding plan for Mount Vernon Youth Programs
On Monday the Board of Legislators (BOL) Seniors and Constituencies Committee and the Budget and Appropriations Committee met jointly to discuss legislation that would provide $179,220 in funding for “Positive Youth Development Programs” in Mount Vernon.  The legislation was moved by both Committees for consideration by the BOL.
The program would be administered through an inter-municipal agreement with the City of Mount Vernon, through the Mount Vernon Youth Bureau.  The program is comprised of three components.
The Safe Haven Program provides summer camp, after school and Saturday services to at risk youth.  The mission of Safe Haven is to provide younger students with enhanced academic support in the core areas of English and Math.  The program serves older students with academic support that emphasizes the STEM concentration on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  Safe Haven targets schools where academic proficiency rates are low. The goal is to prepare students for the rigors of future educational endeavors and to prepare them to successfully live, learn and work in their communities.
The Youth Empowerment Program addresses the unemployment dilemma in the City of Mount Vernon by preparing juvenile delinquents and youth-under-court-supervision for the workforce.  The program also assists youth with barriers to employment like low-income, homelessness and foster-care status to prepare for employment with workshops on, resume writing, communication and presentation skills, time and money management and organizational skills.
The Step Up Program aims to reduce the risk of gang involvement, juvenile delinquency, recidivism, academic failure and other risky behaviors among males ages 12-21.
 Legislator Bernice Spreckman (R) Yonkers, Mount Vernon Chairs the Seniors and Constituencies Committee.  “The Positive Youth development Program is a critical partnership between the County and Mount Vernon.” said Spreckman, “The individual initiatives which are financed through this funding have demonstrated excellent results over the years and I’m glad that these programs will continue.”
Legislator Lyndon Williams (D) has served the City of Mount Vernon as County legislator since 2007 and prior to that, served on the Mount Vernon City Council for 12 years.  “These funds are essential to the social safety net that provides some of our most at risk youth, the training, skills and perspective to be successful in life.” Williams said, “These programs have a proven track record and I appreciate this financial commitment the County is providing toward their future success.  I encourage my colleagues on the Board and the County Executive’s office to provide a dedicated funding line for these programs in future budgets.  The people who operate these programs deserve to know that they can rely on the support from the county as they plan their own budgets.”
Legislator Sheila Marcotte (R) Eastchester is Chair of the Budget and Appropriations Committee.  “These funds are an excellent investment in both the lives of the kids they serve and in our communities as a whole.”  Marcotte said, “If we can identify which kids are not going to school or getting into gang activity or are in any other way at risk and we can intervene early, we save our communities from a human and financial cost that is far greater than the funds we invest now.”

News 12 has more on this exciting project.
Big Changes Coming to Route 6
Work will soon begin on a $2 million project to make improvements at two intersections on U.S. Route 6 in the towns of Somers, in Westchester County, and Carmel, in Putnam County.

Local roads matter. The Route 6 corridor is a crucial transportation artery not only within the 40th Senate District, but the entire Hudson Valley region. This $2 million in new infrastructure funding will create local construction jobs and also support needed safety improvements, such as new signals and turning lanes at two of the busiest intersections, that will help ensure commuters get home safely.

The intersections to be addressed are where Route 6 meets State Route 118 in Somers and where Route 6 meets Union Valley Road in Carmel. READ MORE

8th Annual Murphy Cup Golf Outing
Our biggest and best event ever! It was a beautiful and fun day.

Thank you to all of our players, sponors and dinner guests! SEE MORE State Park Safety
Everyone remembers the incident involving reports of gunshots at FDR State Park in Yorktown on July 19th. It was unacceptable.

In the weeks since the shooting, my concerns have escalated. This week, I announced my plan to increase police protection at New York's state parks.

I believe short and long term plans are needed to ensure the safety of park patrons, as well as those charged with protecting them. It is not reasonable for state officials to promote the parks as an asset while providing in sufficient resources to properly get the job done. READ MORE

Surprising Information about Carpets vs. Hard Flooring and Air Quality

For years, from a style perspective, we’ve preferred the clean sleek look of hardwood floors over wall-to-wall carpeting, especially since we figured out that the costs were comparable. And, from a health consideration, we’ve had the perception in the media that hard surface flooring holds advantages over carpeting for allergy and asthma sufferers. But, just recently, I've made some very surprising discoveries. Click on Full Article below to read about them.

YORKTOWN, NY - For decades, thousands of residents in Yorktown have paid sewer taxes, yet were prohibited by law from hooking up to the sewer district. Even with many facing failing residential septic systems, the town was for years limited to only emergency hook-ups.

That is all about to change.

Today, Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace, joined by local officials and citizens who have been influential in the effort to bring sanitary sewerage systems to Yorktown, will make a major announcement regarding Yorktown's approval to finally issue new permits in the Hallocks Mill Sewer District.

Supervisor Grace, in May successfully obtained permission to issue a limited number of permits, the first to be issued in 27 years.  Monday's announcement is expected to verify that the Town has successfully had its State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit amended to allow for permits to continue to be issued in the Hallock's Mill Sewer District.
