REVENUES UP IN COURT $515,266 IN 2011 COMPARED TO $401,658 LAST YEAR

She was highly recommended by Judge Apotheker, who is overseeing the Greenburgh Town Court on behalf of the NYS court system. The appointment is paying off. This is the comparisons of court revenues from January 1st to March 16th for three consecutive years.

TOWN BOARD WORK SESSION TUESDAY AT TOWN COURT, NOT TOWN HALL
The Greenburgh Town Board will hold our next work session AWAY FROM TOWN HALL--ON TUESDAY, MARCH 22ND. The work session meeting will be held at Greenburgh Town Court on Tarrytown Road. Among agenda items:
Thomas Madden will provide the Town Board with a report and recommendations: uses for Frank's Nursery (which we took over via foreclosure). We are seeking revenue opportunities for the town. We will then meet with Regina Hill and discuss the court operations.
ANOTHER REVENUE GENERATING IDEA FOR THE COURTS--AND A CONVENIENCE FOR RESIDENTS: TRAFFIC COURT ONE EVENING PER MONTH
During the Town Board Work Session scheduled for Tuesday, March 22nd, Court Administrator Regina Hill will propose that Greenburgh Court should have Traffic Court one evening per month. All three Judges are already in agreement.
We currently have night court for Small Claims every Monday night. I am proposing that one of the night Small Claims court be changed to a Traffic Court night. This will give us an additional court session to schedule not guilty pleas for a conference. This additional night court will also increase our revenue for the day.
