Welcome to the official Town of Waterford web site
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
At long last spring and warm weather have arrived and the Town has a fantastic schedule of events and activities planned for the upcoming summer season. Please take the time to read the articles describing these many fun activities, including our Tugboat Roundup and Steamboat Meet, the summer recreation program, and of course, our weekly Farmers Market which is held waterside every Sunday morning starting June 9th. We ask that you take special note of the Town’s annual Memorial Parade which will take place on Wednesday May 22 under the direction of Tom Doin. While the parade is always a fun filled event, please make every effort to attend both the parade and the memorial service that immediately follows the parade’s conclusion at Soldiers and Sailors Park. Let’s all show our appreciation for those who have served our nation both past and present.
The Town Board is currently reviewing several options that will make long needed repairs and improvements to the Senior Citizens Center. Plans for the improvements will be finalized over the next several months and we hope construction will begin before year end. Governor Cuomo and Senator Schumer have very recently announced Waterford is eligible for a potential grant of up to $3 million to address the cost of damage and potential community improvements necessary as a result of hurricanes Irene and Sandy. We are waiting for additional details regarding the program and the town and village governments will be working closely together to take advantage of this opportunity.
As many of you will recall, the Town engaged in a difficult and long battle with the Federal Environmental Protection Agency to recover the additional costs that town residents would incur to purchase water from Troy during the Hudson River Dredging project. As a result of these efforts, I am pleased to report to you that the Waterford Water Authority has received a total of $366,612 and are due an additional $141,090 from the EPA.
On behalf of all of the elected officials and Town employees, we wish you and your family a wonderful and safe summer!
Our Hearts and prayers are with our Troops all over the world!
