A VERY QUIET HALLOWEEN NIGHT
Release Date: October 31, 2010

When I first took office as Town Supervisor Halloween night was a big heacache. Lots of mischief, vandalism, property damage. We responded to the numerous complaints by increasing the police presence during Halloween night. We assign additional  police cars to patrol the town on Halloween. Prior to Halloween we send a message to students that vandalism will not be tolerated.
I just came back home--spent part of the evening with our new Police Chief Joseph DeCarlo. We spent some time patrolling the streets of the town and stopped by at some homes that had experienced problems in recent years. I am very pleased to report that this year Halloween was very quiet. We did confiscate eggs and shaving cream and the police checked to see that groups of teens were not causing problems. The police radio was relatively quiet (a contrast to years ago when I heard complaints, and reports of problems every few minutes).
I would like to thank Police Chief DeCarlo and all the officers who worked Halloween night for doing a great job protecting the community on a night known for mischief and pranks. This was the most quiet Halloween in my memory.  On nights like tonight I felt good --knowing that we're getting great value for our tax dollars!

On another note -- I noticed that more and more people are decorating their homes for Halloween. Among my favorites: an amazing Halloween decorated house on Eiler in E Irvington.

PS: I'd like to know if your impressions are similar to mine---were you pleased with how we handled Halloween? Any suggestions for improvements?
