STORM DAMAGE RESPONSE UPDATE 2 – DAY 4
I am pleased to report that power is methodically being restored in the Village. Some residents got power last night and early afternoon and others are getting power as I write this update. For many cable/internet has come back online along with the power. I hope to have an update from O&R after 11:00 p.m.tonight and Optimum by Monday.
Downed Trees & Street Access
Please proceed with caution on all roads and especially around the utility trucks.

Today the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the construction of the traffic security booth at the main gate. I want to thank the Trustees for working on the passage of the booth over the last year. I have asked the Board to consider a system to open the gate automatically for tagged cars using a system similar to E-ZPass. Under this system, officers can spend more time on non-tagged vehicles and tagged vehicles that choose to stop. Mayor MAC
ROAD SAFETY – 2
Also unanimously, we approved portions of a road safety package put together by the Chief, DPW Supervisor, Code Enforcement Officer, and myself that includes funds for expressly limited signage to be available to the Chief to use on a targeted basis. Besides, we are seeking information on changing the speed limit on certain roads and intend to strictly enforce the current speed limit. These are demanding times with the Park at full capacity and we take your safety very seriously. Both pedestrians and drivers must also take responsibility to reduce the risk of an accident. Mayor MAC
ROAD SAFETY – 1
With the increase in outdoor activities such as walking and biking, we are urging everyone to please use extra caution while driving. Please yield to pedestrians, slow down, and help keep everyone safe. Pedestrians should move against traffic along the side of the road. Our roads are narrow and winding in many places offering limited sight distance.
For the main roads specifically around the lakes, we recommend keeping your speed to 25 mph or below. The police department will be increasing our enforcement efforts to keep everyone safe including enforcing our current 30 mph speed limits for all vehicles on our roads. Let’s work together on safety! Chief Conklin
WWBC TO OPEN
Finally, we voted unanimously to accept the updated WWBC mitigation terms finalized last evening. After many hours of negotiating the previous weeks, the WWBC answered our concerns about COVID-19 and road safety. The discussions about COVID-19 mitigation reached back to very comprehensive state health department rules and regulations for reopening parks and beaches, plus employing a fulltime COVID-19 Enforcement Officer. The WWBC agreed to additional requests as well, such as taking temperatures, contact tracing, and limiting the Hamlet membership to its current members. When the agreement is filed I will share more COVID-19 mitigation by the WWBC on the Village website.
We also limited the roads that can be used by non-tagged member vehicles going to and from the WWBC. We passed a road safety package mentioned earlier targeting vehicle and pedestrian safety. The WWBC agreed to use what we call the North Gate (across from the Wee Wah damn) for non-tagged members to access the WWBC on the two busiest traffic days Saturday and Sunday. Police officers employed by the Village paid for by the WWBC will provide the security. We are appreciative of your participation at the meetings and by email and we respect all points of view. I hope the residents of the Park will take advantage of the enjoyment that is had at the WWBC by becoming new or repeat members this summer. Mayor MAC

ALL BOATS, CANOES, SKULLS, AND KAYAKS MUST HAVE A VILLAGE PERMIT (STICKER)
§ 65-3 Permit required for boats on lakes.
A. No person authorized within this chapter to place a boat in or on the waters of any of the three lakes shall place a boat in or on the waters of any of the three lakes unless a permit therefor shall have been issued by the Village Clerk. Applications for a permit shall be made by the owner of a boat upon a form to be prescribed and furnished by the Village Clerk. Such form shall require a certification from the owner that the owner will comply with procedures approved by the Village for the cleaning of all boats placed in any of the lakes. A fee in an amount set by resolution of the Board of Trustees shall be paid to the Village by the applicant for a permit at the time the application is submitted. Such fee shall be refunded to the applicant in the event that a permit is not issued. The Village Clerk shall maintain a register of all such permits, which will include the name, address and telephone number of each permit holder and a description of the holder’s boat, including length, color, make, purchase date and the date on which the boat was first put into or on any of the lakes.
D. All permits issued hereunder must be renewed annually.
FRESHWATER FISHING SEASON
Black Bass (Largemouth/Smallmouth) – Catch and release until the season begins on June 20, 2020 through November 30, 2020. After the season begins anglers may take up to five bass per day over 12”.
Make sure you have a current fishing license. Failure to do so could result in a ticket. Anyone 16 years or older must have one in their possession when fishing. Licenses are now valid from 365 days from the date of purchase, so check to see if your current one has expired. Anglers can buy their licenses online and print them on their home computer via a link on the DEC website. They can also be purchased by phone by calling 1-866-933-2257, or from the numerous licensing issuing agents at sporting goods stores and some municipal offices across the state.
Brown and Rainbow trout
Our Police Officers thank you for sticking to social distancing protocol during outdoor recreation activities. Doing so benefits you and your neighbors and the Officers. Briefly, we must address an increase in litter on the roadside and numerous small green bags containing dog waste. We respectfully request that you hold on to things until you can properly dispose of them. Thank you for keeping Tuxedo Park beautiful and natural.
