Westchester Greenhouse will open up a new farmer’s market at the vacant A & P supermarket on Route 119. The farmer’s market will be open every Tuesday until November 22nd from 9 am to 4 pm. A special thank you to Commissioner of Planning Thomas Madden for his assistance. It’s my hope that the farmer’s market will be helpful to residents of Manhattan Ave who do not have cars and who depended on the supermarket for many years. The market will start small since it’s late in the season. WIC checks, FMNP and senior coupons are accepted. This market is the 2nd farmer’s market to open in Greenburgh---we have another farmer’s market on E Hartsdale Ave.
The Greenburgh Town Board will devote most of Tuesday’s work session (September 27th) to flood control. We will hear from our hazardous mitigation consultant, Jonathan Raser who will tell the Town Board what grant funds could be available to the town once FEMA approves our hazardous mitigation plan. Some residents have asked to be bought out. Others have asked that their homes be elevated.
The Town Board will also set a date in the near future to clean the Saw Mill River of debris—obstructions that may be contributing to the flooding. We anticipate that a clean up of the river will take place in October.
We will also discuss action steps that could help families who reside at 100 E Hartsdale Ave, Hartsdale. Their parking garage gets flooded frequently. They are asking that the town allow cars to park overnight at the parking garage and on streets that are elevated.
Since the last flood we have provided some help to residents of Old Kensico Road who have been flooded –some curb enhancements that could reduce (but not eliminate)flooding.
The Town Board meeting begins at 9:30 AM and will be streamed live on the town website: www.greenburghny.com

Governor Announces $8 Million Household Appliance Program
NYSERDA is offering grants to victims of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee through the New York Storm Relief Rebate Program. With funding from the American Recovery and Investment Act, the $8 million program will assist New Yorkers in the replacement of household appliances that were lost or damaged in the recent flooding. Homeowners can receive a rebate for the purchase of energy efficient equipment such as refrigerators, boilers, hot water heaters, furnaces, and washing machines and dryers. Where applicable, rebates will be offered for ENERGY STAR appliances or other high efficiency options. Each appliance has a fixed maximum grant, which could cover up to 100 percent of the total purchase. Completed applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, September 19, 2011. The program will continue until all available funding has been granted. With the exception of dehumidifiers, the purchase of appliances and equipment is for replacement purposes only. Purchases that are covered by insurance or FEMA are not eligible for rebate. For details, visit NYSApplianceRebates.com or call 1-877-NY-SMART (877-697-6278).
