COVID-19 cases are on the rise, as predicted heading into the holiday season. We NEED to continue wearing our personal protective equipment, washing our hands and continuing the practice of social distancing. Everyone needs to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 cases in Orange County. As always, I want to thank all of the residents of the Village of Maybrook for their cooperation.

Be well and good health to all!

Mayor Dennis Leahy





On June 12, 2020 Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 203 – New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative. The order requires each Municipality to review the practices of its police department and develop a plan for improvement of such practices and promote community engagement. The order specifically requires an inclusive, open and transparent process. 
 
As part of the process for developing our plan, the Village will be seeking input from its constituents in a variety of ways:

Community Survey on Public Safety and Law Enforcement – All residents and business owners are invited to complete a survey on the Maybrook Police Department. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdKypQ0xxBoIgoxEc4CLxOpHzFFiB6BbuKJfbA4MKxvLUTGBw/viewform?usp=sf_link Please submit your survey response by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 9th.
Community Meetings – A schedule will be forthcoming.



We had a great turnout for the Village of Maybrook Halloween Drive Thru! I want to thank the Village of Maybrook Board of Trustees, the Maybrook Police Department, the Maybrook Fire Department, the Maybrook Kiwanis Club, Shoprite, the Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan and E-Rock Entertainment!
We all came together to sponsor a safe event for the children of our village during COVID-19. It was worth every minute to see happy children during a stressful time. Many thanks to all who made this event possible!
When life throws you lemons, make lemonade!
Be well and be safe everyone😊

On Friday, September 25th, the Maybrook Troop 236 Scouts hosted their “35th Annual Awards Dinner” which was originally scheduled to be held in June but had to be postponed due to COVID-19. This was an abbreviated Awards Dinner compared to the ones held previously however with masks being worn and social distancing, the event was a success and the kids in the troop had closure from their previous year of hard work.
As always, we thank Scoutmasters Bill Giannico and Abby Williams and the Emeritus Scoutmaster Jim Barnett for all they do for the youth in our community.
Mayor Dennis Leahy had the honor of presenting the Maybrook Troop 236 “Scout of the Year Award” to Arica Pearson Leary. Arica made Maybrook Troop 236 history by becoming the first female recipient of the “Scout of the Year Award”!
Congratulations to all of the scouts on a great year despite the circumstances of COVID-19.

“National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives. Now in its 31st year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those living in recovery. Addiction and mental health disorders are a serious problem in our country, but there is hope!  The Village of Maybrook’s close partnership with Hope Not Handcuffs provides a way for those suffering with addiction to get the help they need.  We are here to help.”
The Maybrook Fire Chief Patrick Romanik and the Maybrook Fire Department hosted a 9/11 Ceremony this evening to honor and remember fallen hero and Maybrook resident David Weiss of the NYFD. Always remember and never forget our fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives, the victims and their families.

Report of Examination of the Village of Maybrook conducted by the office of the New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, State Comptroller in July 2020 ; https://www.osc.state.ny.us/sites/default/files/local-government/documents/pdf/2020-07/maybrook-2020-54.pdf





RESIDENTS PLEASE BE ADVISED!
Our wastewater treatment plant operations specialist has notified us that there has been a huge influx of wipes, rags and rubber gloves coming into our treatment facility and is creating a large issue for proper plant operation.  The law prohibits flushing of any substances into the municipal sanitary sewer system with the exception of paper products specifically made for this purpose. Although many of the commercially available “wipes” claim to be biodegradable and flushable, THEY ARE NOT.  Rubber gloves, any types of wipes/rags and cooking oils etc. are also not to be flushed down into the sanitary sewer system as well. Cooking oils form grease balls that become as hard as cement in the sewer lines 
All of these can and do cause sewer main and service lateral back-ups (which are the responsibility of the homeowner to the main)  and very often lead to sanitary sewer line overflows and severe damage to equipment at the treatment facility resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in repairs and cleanup costs.
 
We understand that there is now more than ever a concerted effort to clean and disinfect surfaces etc. the materials used should be disposed of in a plastic trash bag, tightly sealed and put out for garbage collection.
 
 
We truly appreciate you help in keeping out sanitary sewer collection system and treatment facility in its optimum operating condition.
