GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Everyone has their own personal New Year's resolutions, but several Greenburgh leaders are hoping 2013 is the year they'll see some changes happening in the community.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, for instance, has a few things he'd like to see checked off his list. Among them are finalizing a lease at the property that was once WestHELP and selling Frank's Nursery to Game On 365, Feiner also wants to see a growth for businesses in the community.
"I hope to see a supermarket at the Crossroads Shopping Center," he said.
Feiner added he also plans to begin a townwide property reassessment in an effort to bring up to date and make fairer everyone's taxes.
Elmsford Mayor Robert Williams said he'd like to see some more help from the state this year for the village mandates and services. He wants town and village officials to coordinate better with state officials, he said.
"We provide the best services that we can to the people. But times are a little tough," Williams said. "We're going to try to keep the staff maintained to keep providing those great services."
Terry Williams, a Greenburgh Central 7 School Board of Education Member, said the board still is developing several goals for the new year, but added it's too early to go into more detail.
Looking ahead to 2013, Terry Williams said he's excited to release the goals to Greenburgh 7 school district residents, and to work with the new administrative team Superintendent Ronald Ross appointed for the district.
Greenburgh Public Library Director Eugenie Contrata has a specific goal in mind that she's been trying to accomplish the past several years.
"My goal is to get us back open on Thursday nights," said Contrata about the hours, which she wants to extend from 5:30 to 9 p.m. like Tuesdays and Wednesdays. "I think the hurricane showed how much people need the library to be open again."
