Clarkstown Sets Public Hearing To Join Highway, Town Garages

The public hearing is at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19 at Clarkstown Town Hall in New City. This consolidation will streamline vehicle maintenance and services.

 

Clarkstown has been looking into consolidating mechanics Town Garage department for some time now and at Tuesday night’s town board meeting, they set a public hearing to get the ball rolling.

The public hearing was set for June 19 to discuss a proposed local law that would allow this consolidation. The law would transfer the function of the Highway Department mechanics and consolidate all town mechanics under the Town Garage Department.

This consolidation will streamline vehicle maintenance and services.

Under the Town Garage Department, the mechanics would repair service and maintain town vehicles and equipment used by the Highway department, all police vehicles, municipal transportation vehicles and other town vehicles.

The local law will also not usurp or diminish Highway Superintendent Wayne Ballard’s duties or authority, according to the town.

Speaking only for myself, I applaud the town board for this initiative which should save the town (and hopefully the taxpayers) a significant amount of money. Dennis Malone is an ace mechanic and ran a very large repair auto business in the private sector. He has saved the town alot of money as Director of the Mini Trans. Wayne Ballard is, in my opinion, doing a great job with our highways and drainage problems. This should free up some of his time so that he can do an even better job. I'm sure these two fine individuals will figure out a way to make this new arrangement work smoothly. The bottom line is that this move will cut town expenditures. It is long overdue. Good job Alex.
