Press Release from Supervisor Randazzo


FROM TOWN OF CORNWALL SUPERVISOR RICHARD RANDAZZO  May 4, 2021
Community Rebounding Together:
One day last week as I drove past the rear of the Willow Avenue Elementary School on a beautiful sunny day it was a great sight to see the playground and fields filled with all our kids playing and enjoying being outside together with their friends and classmates.  Cornwall Little League has opened and the coaches and volunteers are committed to giving the players as well as the parents a ball season of fun and enjoyment.  While we have all been impacted by this pandemic, our children may have suffered the most. 

We are seeing daylight in our lives after more than a year of turmoil and uncertainty and are experiencing our eagerness to return to normal.  The town is planning and preparing for all our usual summer programs including our summer recreation program, the opening of our wading pool, swimming pool and scheduling town trips.  The summer concert series for Music in the Park has been scheduled to begin on June 6th.  Our recreation staff is working hard to put on programs and activities for all our residents as we follow all the health and safety precautions to do our part in seeing our community rebound and move forward with our lives.

If you have any suggestions for programs or activities that you would like to see for our town, please contact me or our recreation staff to help us work on expanding the opportunities for our residents.

Storm King Golf Course - Stop Work Order and Orders to Remedy:
The extent of the tree clearing and grading activity that has been taking place at the Storm King Golf Course has caused concern among the Town and its residents.  I have spoken with the Town's Code Enforcement Officer, engineering consultant, and legal counsel regarding this matter, and this afternoon a second Stop Work Order was issued to the property owner together with two Orders to Remedy.  I am hopeful that the property owner will work with the Town to remedy the situation and bring this matter to a satisfactory conclusion so that the improvements to the golf course can be allowed to proceed.

MUNGER COTTAGE WILL BE RE-OPENING ON MARCH 15th  ON A LIMITED BASIS:

     After consulting with our County Executive Steve Neuhaus and our County Health Commissioner Dr. Gelman, I am pleased to report that we will be re-opening Munger Cottage on a limited basis starting Monday, March 15th.  As everyone knows we have been working with the health agencies during the past year and have been very cautious in an effort to do our part to help control the spread of COVID in our community to protect our residents and staff.   

     Initially, Munger Cottage will open at a reduced capacity and compliance with ALL County Health Department and CDC regulations will be required for all programs and meetings at the Cottage.  Information will be coming out on town programs and schedules as they become available.  Groups and organizations can resume holding their meetings at Munger Cottage, but should contact the Town Clerk’s office to confirm availability.  The Commissioner emphasizes that our senior citizens are still the most vulnerable population for COVID and urges seniors to be cautious about attending gatherings until they are vaccinated. 

     If you have any questions, please call the Supervisor’s Office at 845-534-3760.  For scheduling the use of Munger Cottage, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at 845-534-9100.
