Residents’ Access Town Information Through Various Online Initiatives


(New City, NY) – Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack is continuing to expand his outreach to Town residents by disseminating a monthly e-newsletter and creating pages on Facebook and Twitter.

Each month the Town of Clarkstown sends out an electronic newsletter with updates on town events, programs, new policies and laws, helpful tips and links, photos and much more.  The most recent newsletter included information on deer control, budget cuts, and the Town’s greening efforts, all issues raised to the Supervisor by his constituents.
