Village Trustees Meeting: Update from Albany; Tax Cap Override PDF Print Email

By Katharine Outcalt

Apr. 15, 2020: State Senator Shelley Mayer joined Monday’s Village Board of Trustees meeting, which was conducted by teleconference due to the COVID-19 emergency. 

Senator Mayer’s update from Albany included the good news that, “despite the catastrophic fiscal impact of the coronavirus on the state’s revenues,” there will be no cuts in school aid for FY 2020-2021. Due to an $18.4 billion state-wide investment made possible by the federal CARES Act and other federal partners, the school district’s Foundation Aid will remain the same as last year.

The Senator cited a $1.05 billion increase in funding for unemployment insurance to handle the anticipated increase in unemployment claims due to the coronavirus. Additionally, she highlighted several modifications to criminal justice reforms that were shaped by meetings with Bronxville’s Chief of Police Christopher Satriale.

Mayor Mary Marvin’s report included a reminder that the Mayor and Chief Satriale are continuing with their Monday and Friday updates to the village via telephone and email. 

Village Administrator, Jim Palmer, opened public hearings for Local Law 1 – 2020 Tax Cap Override (growth factor of 1.78%) and for the 2020/2021 Village Budget. 

After some discussion, the public hearings were closed, though it was noted that the public will have one week to send in written comments on the Village Budget. 

Comments can be sent to  CLOAKING  until Monday, April 20. The Budget must be adopted by May 1. The village’s proposed 2020-21 budget can be viewed by clicking here.

The Trustees approved a resolution for the adoption of the Tax Cap Override. 

Palmer reminded residents that while the village offices are currently closed to the public due to coronavirus, a reduced staff are answering the phones and responding to emails.

Bronxville Overview

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.
