YOU CAN MARRY ON SUNDAY JULY 24TH...SHOULD SCHOOLS SHARE SUPERINTENDENTS?
Release Date: July 14, 2011

NYS SUPREME COURT JUDGE TO PROVIDE WAIVERS OF 24 HOUR WAIT FOR MARRIAGE CEREMONIES ON SUNDAY, JULY 24TH

Greenburgh Town Clerk Judith Beville sent me the following memo following up on her decision to open Town Hall on Sunday July 24th from 12-2 PM. This is the first day that same sex couples can be married in NYS. The office will also process marriage licenses from heterosexual couples who want to get married on July 24th.

I have just been informed by the Supreme Court Chambers in White Plains that a judge will be available at Greenburgh Town Hall to review marriage applications filed on Sunday, July 24, 2011 and, provided the information on the application meets the approval of the Supreme Court Judge, a waiver of the 24 hour wait period for marriage ceremonies will be granted allowing for those couples who desire to marry on July 24th to do so. Couples choosing this option must call or e-mail me, Judith A. Beville, Greenburgh Town Clerk, to make arrangements for their ceremony. My office phone number is (914) 993-1504 and my email is jbeville@greenburghny.com.

Thank you,

Judith Beville, Town Clerk

 
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT--- SHOULD SCHOOLS SHARE SUPERINTENDENTS WHEN A SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT RETIRES? The Superintendent of Schools at Central 7 (RON SMALLS) has announced his retirement -effective the end of the year. Superintendents earn over $200,000 a year with benefits. Instead of hiring an interim School Superintendent for a year-- I think the school district should consider approaching a neighbor and invite them to share a Superintendent. This could be tried for one year. The school district saves significant money. There would more sharing of administrative responsibilities. I'm not advocating consolidation of school districts--only sharing of one administrative position. If this works it could be a model for the rest of the region. We need to figure out ways to cut costs. School districts are facing significant additional stresses--thanks to the new property tax cap approved by the Governor and State Legislature. It's easier to share services when there is a retirement--once someone is appointed to a job it's harder to eliminate a position. WHAT DO YOU THINK???
