PELHAM, N.Y. - The Pelham Village Board of Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to deliver an early Christmas gift to those shopping locally.
Parking on Fifth Avenue and Wolfs Lane will be free starting Wednesday, Dec. 16 as the parking meters will be covered. Residents, however, still must move their car every two hours.
The vote will not only help Pelham citizens, but the stores and restaurants in that area as well, the board said. The goodwill gesture ends Dec. 27.
Also at the meeting, the board discussed the parking lot on First Street behind the old post office building and the one on Fifth Avenue near Capital One Bank. Both lots have been completely repaired, which had been approved at the boards last meeting in September.
Moneys tight, but were spending money where we need it most, said Village Administrator Robert Yamuder in reference to the parking lot. The main thing is that were keeping it safe for people who use it. It is money well spent.
Other items discussed involved the Legal Services of Hudson Valley, which is known for helping those who are evicted from their homes. The board unanimously approved a resolution supporting the company as it faces severe budget cuts heading into next year.
It was a successful meeting where the public was heard and a lot of business was attended to, said Yamuder. Thats what you want in a meeting.
The next Pelham Village Board meeting will take place Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m.
