Village Manager’s Special Report
21 July 2021
From the Village Manager:
From the Fire Department. Please be advised that there will be a BMFD drill held this Saturday, 24 July 2021, from approximately 8:00 AM to about Noon. Our BMFD Volunteers will be holding the drill at the intersection of Locust and Hickory Roads. Residents can expect to see all BMFD fire apparatus and support vehicles at a minimum. Every effort will be made to keep the roadway open ... however, depending on various drills and equipment used, the intersection may be closed from time to time for safety reasons. The drill will include training on how to position the ladder truck and use the aerial ladder during a real fire: all proper techniques in using ground ladders at a structure fire.
NYS DOT. Route 100-C Bridge demolition. The NYSDOT’s contractor had to postpone the scheduled closure and demolition of the Route 100-C Bridge (Grasslands Road, Elmsford) over Route 9A to the first weekend of August. I hope to have the planned detour pattern available in my Friday letter: it’s been complicated for a long time. After the bridge is removed, a longer term detour pattern will be put in place and set into place. This work zone is immediately adjacent to our 30” Tri-Village Water Main and a part of the Regeneron expansion plan.
Weather Alert. Shifting weather patterns ... hazy, hot and humid local conditions are on us. Watch for slight temperature inversions that could trigger pop-up localized thunderstorms.
