Town Awards Pride of Clarkstown Awards on February 9th


New City, NY - Councilmember George Hoehmann, Supervisor Alex Gromack, and the Town Board will award the 2009 Pride of Clarkstown Awards on Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at the Town Board Meeting scheduled for 8 p.m.  All residents and businesses are welcome to attend.  


The program was created to recognize outstanding commercial properties, nominated by individuals and civic organizations.  This is the fourth annual Pride of Clarkstown ceremony in which the winners will receive an attractive award to display at their place of business. 


“The committee of volunteers visited every nominated site and met numerous times to carefully choose winners in each category,” said Councilman George Hoehmann, the Town Board Liaison for the Pride of Clarkstown.  “My deep appreciation goes to the members of the committee who have donated their time and talent to recognize businesses that are going above and beyond others in making our town more attractive for all of us.”


Supervisor Gromack and the Town Board established this program and a committee in 2005 under the leadership of the late Clarkstown Councilman Ralph Mandia.  The committee of volunteers accepts nominations, separates them by various categories and after careful consideration selects the winners. 


“I congratulate this year’s winners and thank the committee for their hard work,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “These businesses have proven their commitment to the Town and our community by making such beautiful enhancements to their properties.”


The Pride of Clarkstown Awards serves as an incentive to business owners to take that extra step to make their property look beautiful.  The goal is that these voluntary and often costly efforts would prompt other business owners to do the same. Since its inception businesses are continuing to beautify their establishments in a unique public/private partnership that is not at taxpayer expense and makes us all feel a sense of civic pride. 


“If Ralph were here today, he would be most proud of the efforts of these business owners who truly are the Pride of Clarkstown,” said Councilman Hoehmann.
