Newly appointed Fleischmanns mayor Todd Pascarella recently wrote an update on the progress of millions of dollars' worth of flood recovery projects in the village, and recent changes in village govenment.
Pascarella was appointed earlier this month to fill the seat of former mayor Dave Morell, who resigned in February.
In his letter, Pascarella reports that the village is working toward opening some temporary park space on land owned by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection while restoration work continues on the village park, which was heavily damaged in last year's Irene floods.
A flood study is underway that will guide millions of dollars in stream work in the village, all of which will be funded through various sources with help from the Delaware County Soil and Water Conservation District.
Construction work on Main Street is in progress, funded by a $250,000 grant from the MARK Project.
In village government news, fellow trustee Ben Fenton has been appointed deputy mayor, trustee Fred Woller has been appointed the new highway superintendent (replacing Pascarella), and trustee Harriet Grossman will be in charge of the village pool, which will be open this sumer.
Pascarella's letter is embedded below.
