A Message from Village Hall I am saddened to hear of the passing of Linda Standish, the Village of Washingtonville Historian. Linda was such an integral part of our village. She volunteered for many community projects and was always there to help anyone who was in need. Even though Linda never sought the limelight, it was an honor to nominate her for Assemblyman Schmitt’s Women of Distinction Award in 2019. She was a lovely person who will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Bill and daughter Kylie. Joseph BuccoMayor Village Board of Trustees, Valerie Laudato, Laurisa Sampson, Jim Kolar and Rich Calore ... See MoreSee Less

A Message from Village HallJust received an follow - up Email from Orange and RocklandSTORM WATCH: O&R OBTAINS EXTRA CREWS TO HELP RESTORE POWER AS NOR’EASTER NEARSPEARL RIVER, NY Jan. 16, 2022 Noon --- O&R’s company-wide emergency response group is prepared to make repairs to damage and restore electric service interruptions that could result from the strong nor’easter, which is expected to blow through the region tonight into Monday.Company and contractor overhead line crews and tree removal experts have been activated for storm duty beginning this evening and continuing through the day Monday. O&R has also obtained additional contractor overhead line technicians to supplement its storm response. Those additional resources expand O&R’s field workforce by over twice its normal size.Damage assessment, site safety, customer service operations and the wide array of O&R teams that support those functions also have been mobilized. Weather ForecastA low-pressure system is expected to bring snow showers to the area beginning after 7 p.m. Sunday. The snow is expected to fall steadily at times, before changing over to rain around midnight Monday in Rockland and Bergen counties where up to 2 inches of snow is possible. In Orange, Sullivan, Passaic and Sussex counties, the change over from a wintry mix to rain isn’t expected until 3 a.m. Monday. That could result in approximately 2 inches to 6 inches of snow. In addition, gusty winds are likely and highest closer to the coast after midnight until 7 a.m. Monday. Winds in Rockland and Bergen counties are expected to peak overnight Sunday into Monday 20-30 m.p.h. sustained with gusts of 45 to 55 m.p.h. In Orange, Sullivan, Passaic and Sussex counties, the winds are expected to be 15-30 m.p.h. sustained with gusts of 40 to 50 m.p.h. Rain will taper off around dawn Monday near the coast and about late morning further inland as low pressure exits into northern New England. Winds will remain breezy in the wake of this system, with gusts close to 35-45 mph from 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. Monday.These strong winds could knock trees and branches onto power lines, causing customers to lose service. For safety’s sake, don’t touch or approach any downed wires.Restoring Service Once the weather clears enough to safely assess damage and begin electric service restoration, crews will give priority to clearing downed wires blocking roads and making repairs to critical and emergency facilities (police and fire stations, and hospitals, for example) and to those locations that will provide power to the most customers quickly. Then, crews will restore smaller outages and individual customers’ outages.O&R personnel have been instructed to practice social distancing with each other, mutual aid personnel and members of the public when responding to emergency calls in an attempt to keep everyone safe from the coronavirus. O&R asks members of the public as well to maintain appropriate social distancing when they encounter O&R employees working in the field to provide for mutual safety. ... See MoreSee Less
