Wanted: wheelchair for Greenburgh Town Hall ---some elderly and disabled residents of Greenburgh who have talked to me at Town Hall this week while they were paying their school tax bill (which is due on Monday) mentioned that it is difficult walking from the lobby to the tax office. A few people suggested that we place a wheelchair at the entrance to the Town Hall lobby that could be used by seniors who have difficulty walking.
If you know of anyone who has a wheelchair that is not needed and if that person would like to donate the wheelchair to the town - please advise by e mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
