The City of Newburgh is continuing with its effort to educate our community around the proposed zoning changes. Our next community gathering is scheduled for 4/29/15 at 6pm at the Activity Center, 401 Washington Street. To see the flyer click here
Many comments are presently circulating about a potential change to the City of Newburgh’s Charter Section C5.05 entitled “Duties of City Manager” to provide for City Council CONFIRMATION of certain city manager appointments of the code of the City of Newburgh. The local paper even had the required sensationalist headline of “Newburgh Power Grab…”
To set the record straight – this has not taken place. I’ve gotten calls regarding my vote to change the charter etc., to which I’ve answered that what was approved is the scheduling of a public hearing to hear residents opinion on the proposed change. This public hearing will be held April 27, 2015, during the regular scheduled council meeting which starts at 7:00pm. I look forward to hearing from the constituents in my ward.
Below is the proposed changes for everyone to review.
Leveraging folks meeting times, February’s Ward 1 meeting will be the Distressed Property Community Meeting on Wednesday, February 18 at 7:00pm at the Newburgh Free Library. A line up of great speakers are expected. Please join us!
Please be advised that due to a water main break at Liberty St. between Clinton and Broad Street there will be a temporary loss of water service. The City of Newburgh is working to repair the service as soon as possible.
