June 12, 2024: The Village of Bronxville held its June Board of Trustees meeting on June 10th.

Police Business

Mayor Marvin opened the meeting by expressing her appreciation for the Bronxville Police Department which she described as "the best police department in Westchester."

Chief of Police Christopher Satriale then spoke and said that there are four new positions for which officers are being sworn in. He said that those positions are "the direct result of this Boards' support for law enforcement and public safety in the village of Bronxville."  The officers were sworn in later in the meeting.

Chief Satriale noted that the village is changing, including outdoor dining and food delivery services, such as uber eats and door dash. He said that one big challenge in the village is scooters and mopeds operated by delivery drivers. He said that these new services provide benefits to village businesses and residents but also said that it is important to make sure those who are delivering are operating with the proper licenses, registration and insurance. So Bronxville police officers are making sure that motorcycles and mopeds in the village are operating within the laws of the state of New York.  To date, the Bronxville police have impounded more than 30 mopeds as part of this effort. 

Chief Satriale said that the police are now undertaking a “double yellow line enforcement initiative” to stop people from crossing the double yellow line to park. 

At the meeting, Detective Cheryl Jarosz and Detective Wilson Valentin were promoted to Sergeant, and both will become Patrol Supervisors. Jarosz is the first female Supervisor in the Bronxville Police Department. Additionally, Sergeant Bart Sandarciero is retiring after serving for over two decades and received a standing ovation. 

A number of members of the police department were also recognized for their excellent work in the department.

Mayor’s Report

The Mayor noted that this is Gay Pride month and said, “we salute everybody in this community.”

She also reported that the village Sidewalk Sale was very successful.

She said that Phil Alfieri is retiring after 32 years with the village.  One of Alfieri's favorite parts of the job was interacting with the people in the village.

Report by Village Administrator Jim Palmer

Village Administrator Jim Palmer reported that Con Edison is working on its gas line replacement project. The village sends out notices to those impacted. Current work includes gas line replacement for portions of Avon Road and Park Avenue. The next gas-line projects will be on Crows Nest Road and on a portion of Pondfield Road.

Palmer also reported the following:

-the Village is retaining a company to assist the village with FEMA flood mitigation grant applications.

-the Village is retaining an expert to finalize the design of the westside circle in Bronxville, with a particular focus on traffic calming, pedestrian improvements, extending the sidewalks, and reducing the exposure of pedestrians in the crosswalks. Much of this will be funded with a $150,000 grant.

-the Village is purchasing another pump to help in the event of flooding on Hamilton Avenue and will swap out the current pump that is not as efficient. This project will also be reimbursable as part of a FEMA project.

-the Police Department received a $173,000 grant for surveillance cameras, a license plate reader, and drones.

-tax bills were mailed, and the first installment is due by 7/1. Penalties for late payments are NY State mandated. Bills can now be paid online if desired.

Other News

The Police Department is now on social media on Facebook, Instagram and X. They post information about what’s going on in the village with respect to police activity.

Government & History Directory

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
