Mayor Mike Levine

In my last letter, I asked that everyone take time to prepare for what was forecasted to be a blustery cold and snowy winter.  Little did I know.  I certainly hope that you took heed and were able to weather the proverbial storm without too much distress.  The good news is that we as a village fared better than most, thanks once again to the excellent snow removal by Landscapes by Gasper LaRosa.  Kudos to Joseph LaRosa and his crew for a job well done.

It is with great joy and a true sense of relief that I heartily proclaim, “Spring has finally arrived”!  And with spring comes “spring cleaning”.  Trustee Bob Whitcomb is currently negotiating the terms for street sweeping and catch basin cleaning, and I am sure that Trustee Tim Hopkins and the Environmental Committee and will be busy as well reviewing and issuing permits for tree removal.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back our two returning trustees, Jeff Owen and Steve Shybunko.  Both are starting their third consecutive terms with us and their knowledge and expertise in so many areas make them indispensable. 

As residents of Old Field, each and every one of us has an obligation to join in the self-governing of our village, whether through serving on our boards and committees or attending our meetings to keep current on local and state affairs.  We have made it our choice to live in a village and we must accept the responsibilities that come with this lifestyle.

By now you have all received your annual tax invoices and as you can see, we have done our best to keep the necessary increase as low as possible (less than 2%).  When it comes to our annual budget, we as a board, along with our watch dog, Treasurer Andrea Podolsky, are truly cognizant of the need to meticulously monitor village expenses. Wasteful spending is non-existent and frugality is uppermost in our minds as decisions are made to keep our village prosperous and solvent.

All is relatively quiet in the village as far as projects are concerned.  One that everyone is hoping will take place is the dredging of Flax Pond.  Two of our residents – Fredelle and John Robinson - have taken the lead and are working hard to see that funding is secured for this much needed dredging.  Flax Pond is a very integral piece of the village and it is imperative that we keep it flowing. 

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to enjoy the crocuses as they push their way out of the cold earth.  Feel the warmth of the sun on your face and breathe deeply as everything around us once again is renewed.  Be sure to take a moment to be thankful as we all look forward to another beautiful season to be lived and enjoyed in the spectacular Village of Old Field.  And always remember, should you have an idea or two that you feel will improve our lovely village and would like to share it with us, please feel free to come to our monthly meetings, send us a letter, or just stop by Village Hall.
