Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack Delivers 2009 ‘State of the Town’

Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack Delivers 2009 ‘State of the Town’

Highlights Town’s Successes, Despite County and State’s Economic Woes


Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack will deliver his ‘State of the Town’ address tonight, 8PM, at Town Hall.  This year’s address lays out the Supervisor’s leadership vision intended to guide the Town through these tough economic times, while highlighting the Town’s accomplishments in 2008. 


“As bad as things are at the national, state and county levels we have strengths here in Clarkstown,” Supervisor Gromack notes, “We are not looking at any budget deficit, our money management is sound and this year we once again have a balanced budget.”


As part of his plan, Clarkstown will continue its strong commitment to partnerships, both public and private, allowing the Town to continue to provide the best services and resources available for our residents.  He will also emphasize his efforts to secure additional federal, state and county funds, including increasing Clarkstown’s share of the sales tax revenue generated by the Palisades Mall, to mitigate the property tax burden on Clarkstown residents. 


One of Clarkstown’s significant accomplishments last year was selling the town transfer station to the Rockland County Solid Waste Management Authority for $15 million dollars.  The Town also established a host community fee from the sale that will produce revenue for the town each year, furthering the Supervisors’ commitment to stabilizing taxes for Clarkstown residents.   


In 2008, the Town also continued its work on a new Comprehensive Plan, which will be the Town’s road map for the next five years.  Supervisor Gromack will also highlight the successful revitalization of the Town’s downtown hamlet centers and will note that once again, Clarkstown was rated as one of the safest communities in the nation and also one of the ‘100 Best Places to Live’.


Also at the reorganization meeting, newly elected Town Justice Rolf Thorsen will take his Oath of Office.  The Clarkstown High School North and South Concert Choir will perform throughout the program and the Clarkstown Police Honor Guard will conduct a presentation of colors.
