The Canadian border will reopen to fully vaccinated U.S. citizens on August 9. The Canadian government is finally reopening its borders and an open border with our neighbors to the North means families will be reunited once again and much-needed relief to our border communities that depends on cross-border trade and supply chains.

Outdoor dining rules have been extended for another year. Yesterday, the Governor signed legislation that allows bars & restaurants to continue using municipal spaces for outdoor dining. Outdoor dining was popular throughout the pandemic and was an important lifeline for many businesses.

Maybrook Police “Right to Know Cards”
PRESS RELEASE
DATE: July 21, 2021
AUTHORITY: Village of Maybrook Police Chief Arnold Amthor
On July 21, 2021 at around 12:57 in the afternoon Maybrook Police Sergeant Maresca and Officer Erps responded to a residence in the Village for a report of an emotionally disturbed 14 year old juvenile with a knife. Upon the officer’s arrival, the juvenile was observed with a large sized chef’s knife in her hand demanding to be left alone and for officers to get away. After speaking with the juvenile for several minutes and pleading with her to put the knife down, the juvenile eventually did listen and put the knife down on the ground. Officers were then able to seize and safely secure the knife and ultimately arrange for the juvenile to be transported to Garnet Health for a mental health evaluation.
I would like to commend the actions of my officers as they were able to prevent a very difficult circumstance from becoming worse by quickly de-escalating the situation. Their ability to speak with the juvenile in a calm professional manner certainly aided in such a positive outcome. As a result of their professionalism no force was used to bring the juvenile into custody for the evaluation.
I would like to remind the public that our Police Officers and other Officers throughout the country unfortunately have to deal with situations just like this incident on a routine basis. Although the outcome in this case ended positively, every incident is not the same as circumstances can often dictate different outcomes.
