Tuesday, April 7, 2020 - 7:00pm
Notice is hereby given that the Village of Cold Spring Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 7:00 pm at Village Hall, 85 Main Street, Cold Spring, NY to receive comment on the Budget for the 2020-21 Fiscal Year. The comment period will be kept open until 4:00 PM on Friday, April 10, 2020.
NOTE FROM THE MAYOR
The Coronavirus has certainly thrown a wrench into our everyday lives. Everything has been turned upside down and there is no normal anymore. On April 7th we will open a Public Hearing on the Village’s Tentative 2020-21 Budget with the public not being allowed to attend. Having always been an advocate for transparency and public participation, this puts me in a very uncomfortable position. Complying to Public Hearing Notification Laws we were not able to hold the Hearing earlier, giving more time for public input. So, although the Hearing will officially and lawfully be opened on April 7th,
The Village Board of Trustees will take public comment starting immediately and keep the Public Hearing open until April 10th, giving as much time for comment as possible. I encourage everyone to review the Budget asap and send comments and questions to the below links. You can also call the Village Hall with comments. All comments will be documented and entered into the minutes. The Budget is posted on-line with the link below. If you do not have a computer or would like a hardcopy, we will hand deliver one to your address at your request.
All Village Board of Trustee meetings are videotaped and available on the Village’s YouTube channel (search Village of Cold Spring NY on YouTube), including the preliminary budget meetings held on 3-9-20 and 3-18-20.
You can view the 2020-21 Tentative Budget in a number of ways:
- On the Village website at https://www.coldspringny.gov/village-clerk-treasurers-office.
- You can also request a copy electronically by emailing the Village Clerk’s office (email@example.com).
- You can call the Village Clerk’s office at 845-265-3611 x1 and we will make arrangements to get a copy to you via the US Mail or deliver one to your doorstep.
Budget comments and questions can be addressed to the Village Clerk, 85 Main Street, Cold Spring NY 10516, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 845-265-3611 x1.
The comment period will remain open through Friday April 10, 2020 at 4:00 PM.
