From The Mayor: Courage Under Pressure PDF Print Email


By Mary Marvin, Mayor, Village of Bronxville

Mar. 25, 2020:  To all my neighbors,

Hemingway said, “Courage is grace under pressure,” and I can attest that our Village is filled with courageous citizens.

It starts right at our Police Department, where our officers volunteered to pick up and deliver groceries and medicine to our seniors and the infirmed.

Our Police Department was the thoughtful recipients of meals sent by the Junior League just yesterday.

Walk down the street, and our shop owners and restaurants, who are taking an economic gut punch, are handling it with kindness and understanding. As an example, Yoita, the owner of our Bronxville Diner, connected with the Eastchester Community Action Program (ECAP) in Tuckahoe, sharing food with those in need.

Carl and his staff at Acme are working non-stop to keep the shelves stocked and providing curbside delivery. Steve Palm, owner of Underhill’s Crossing, stands outside his restaurant and has a smile and encouraging word for all that walk by. I was a lucky recipient of his optimism.

Many landlords have also stepped up by significantly lowering rent to help these tenants through the crisis.

Residents in the dozens have emailed me asking me how they can help. Just as we are known as a community that comes to the aid of neighbors and friends in times of illness and sadness, we must do the same for our business community.

To help, please refer to the list of our merchants below and eateries that offer pick up and/or delivery published in MyHomeTownBronxville and buy gift cards/certificates by email or phone message to be used to help merchants get back on their feet.

Bronxville Village Trustee Report: Recycling, Repairs & A Big Thank You PDF Print Email


By Staff

March 18, 2020: The Village of Bronxville Board of Trustees met on March 9, 2020.

The meeting included a presentation organized by the Green Committee on Food Scrap Recycling. A Food Scrap Recycling program enables participants to gather food scraps in a special bin. The food scraps are then either picked up with regular recycling or dropped off in larger containers in dedicated areas. This is a program that some other towns and villages have implemented, and Bronxville can consider.

Bronxville Village Administrator, Jim Palmer, reported that the State has approved $250k to repair the underpass in Bronxville. The repairs will eliminate the "yellow flag conditions" identified by the State. According to Palmer, the yellow flags repairs include "straightening, sanding and painting multiple steel columns." 

Additional aesthetic improvements will include "new railings along both sides of the underpass, sidewalk repair/replacement, some brick along the sidewalk and painting the retaining wall below the railing." Repairs will also include "additional steel painting and bridge height signage." The bid drawings should be finalized this month. The probable start date for the project is June 1, 2020.

Finally, Mayor Marvin and other Trustees recognized the contribution of Trustee Bill Barton, who will be leaving the Board of Trustees after serving four terms.

Barton described the moment as "bittersweet" and the village board as "at the top of volunteer organizations, mostly because of the people and staff." He talked about how government works best at the local level and that how the village board is really focused on getting things done.

Trustee Bob Underhill thanked Barton for his commitment to infrastructure and environmental sustainability. Trustee Mark Wood spoke about Barton leaving the village in better shape than when he started.
