These are difficult times we are facing in our country and throughout the entire world as we continue to cope with COVID 19. This year, our annual Village of Maybrook Memorial Day Parade had to be cancelled due to social distancing. A brief ceremony with limited participants was held at the Maybrook Fire House, the Maybrook VFW Post 2064, the Veterans Monument at the Maybrook United Methodist Church and the Frederick Myers Veterans Monument in the Frederick Myers Veterans Memorial Park. All participants wore face masks and practiced social distancing. We as a nation will get through these tough times.
Today, on Memorial Day, the Village of Maybrook honored the men and women who fought and sacrificed for our freedom. Their ultimate sacrifice for all of us is our inspiration and will help guide us through these difficult times. On this Memorial Day, let us remember, honor and never forget these brave men and women who fought for our liberties. May God Bless them, their families and our United States of America.
A special thank you to the Village of Maybrook Board of Trustees, Maybrook Trustee Kevin Greany, the Maybrook VFW Post 2064 and Auxiliary, Sargent Micheal Maresca and the Maybrook Police Department, Fire Chief Patrick Romanik and the Maybrook Fire Department, Regular People’s Baptist Church Pastor Tom Jackson, Maybrook Troop 236 Scouts Assistant Scoutmaster Abby Williams.
Be safe and good health to all.

Per Governor Cuomo, the Mid-Hudson Region will be opening on Tuesday, May 26th, contingent upon having the required number of regional contact tracers signed up and certified. To that end, the County Executives in the Region have agreed to be sure that each does what is needed to fully meet this metric. 
 
If you are willing to be a contact tracer or know someone else who will, please do the following no later than 5:00 pm Monday, May 25th:
 
Volunteers will need to take a free course and the exam from John Hopkins University (link is here). When filling out the online application, it initially shows a fee of $49. A discount is applied upon checkout making it no cost.

 
Provide your name and e-mail address to Michael Ventre, Deputy Commissioner of Orange County Health Department (mventre@orangecountygov.com).
 
Provide Deputy Commissioner Ventre with a copy of your certification upon completion of the course/test (scan and e-mail, or text or e-mail a photo of it).
 
Please note: if you have already done the steps above, you do not need to resubmit the information.
 
For more information on:
 
Phase 1 of the re-opening, visit https://forward.ny.gov/
 
The Empire State Development website has re-opening guidance and guidelines for businesses: https://esd.ny.gov/

 
Contact Tracing:
 
The role of a contact tracer will involve calling people throughout the County who may have contacted a COVID-19 positive individual and collecting and entering data with respect to their whereabouts and individuals they have encountered.
 
To be a contact tracer, New York State requires the completion of an online training and certification program. According to the State, this online course and exam takes five hours; however, most people seem to complete it in roughly an hour.

Village of Maybrook resident Martha Barrera reached out to Mayor Dennis Leahy and Trustee Kevin Greany about getting extra participation from residents for Memorial Day because of social distancing caused by the COVID-19. Ms. Barrera is on the board for the Blooming Grove Chamber of Commerce and started a group in Washingtonville called the Washingtonville Community Events Council. What she proposed is called “A Light to Remember 2020”. Residents and businesses are invited to decorate their homes with red, white, and blue (can be Christmas lights) from May 20th through May 31st.  Ms. Barrera brought it to our attention because she wanted to lift the spirits of those in her community for Memorial Day 2020. The Village of Maybrook Board of Trustees unanimously approved participation and we thank Ms. Barrera for bringing this idea to our attention. Please join in to honor the men and women who sacrificed and died for our country by participating in
“A Light to Remember” beginning May 20th through May 31st!
This week is National Law Enforcement Week to honor, remember, and celebrate American Law Enforcement.
Every day, the men and women of our Village of Maybrook Police Department put their lives at risk to serve and protect the citizens of our village.
Thank you to the Village of Maybrook Police Department for your service and dedication. Remember the law enforcement officers across the nation who have sacrificed their lives serving their communities.

Pursuant to Executive Order 202.26, which was issued the evening of May 1, 2020, all village elections scheduled to take place in March, April, May, and June of 2020 have been postponed and rescheduled to September 15, 2020.  The Order states that for any village election in which the ballot was fully determined when the election was postponed, the election will proceed with the same ballot.  Additionally, if the ballots were already printed the ballots may be used at the September 15, 2020 election, despite displaying the original date of the election.
 
In village elections for which ballot access was incomplete when petitioning was suspended, the Executive Order states that the petitioning process will continue to be on hold until the NY on Pause Order ceases, subject to a process determined by a future Executive Order. 
 
Lastly, while current elected village officials will remain in office until the rescheduled election is held on September 15, 2020, the newly elected officials will assume office when the results of the election are certified pursuant to Election Law § 15-126.

Please be advised, the explosions heard earlier in the day were not in the village. The NYS Police were destroying explosives and confiscated munition in a controled environment off of Baron Rd. The NYS Police Helicopter was in the area to make sure no civilians were in the vicinity. – Mayor Dennis Leahy





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.

An Executive Order issued by Governor Cuomo mandates that all customers wear a face covering while shopping, as of Friday 4/17/20. Please make sure you bring your own to wear next time you visit our store. A bandanna or scarf works in a pinch. And here’s a link to making your own: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html.

Given the need for proper social distancing, we kindly ask that customers refrain from shopping as a family or in groups (whenever possible). It’s best to appoint one person per household to handle any necessary shopping trips. This will allow for easier navigation of the store while remaining 6 feet away from other customers and our associates.

The containment of the Coronavirus is a shared responsibility, and we greatly appreciate your help!

A Reminder to Flush Responsibly

Wipes in treatment plant

Certain materials flushed down toilets can damage sewer systems, wastewater treatment operations, or private septic systems, even when they are labeled as flushable. Correcting the damage is expensive, so do not flush any of the items listed below, no matter how small. Please throw them in the trash. 

  • diapers
  • baby wipes
  • disinfectant wipes
  • personal hygiene products
  • any paper products other than toilet paper (e.g., paper towels, facial tissues, paper napkins)

  Clogged treatment systems are expensive to clean out!
