I am looking forward to seeing all of you for one or all of the Ward 1 Community Meetings.
Ward meetings are a great opportunity if you cannot attend work sessions or council meetings to catch up with me and meet some of your neighbors. We have many things that are taking place in the City of Newburgh and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
The City of #Newburgh is releasing an update concerning the quality of our drinking water. According to the State Department of Health, the City’s water supply, which comes from Washington Lake, has never had PFOS contaminate levels above the recommended limits of 200 parts per trillion. The measure has been at 140 parts per trillion. To be on safe side, the City water supply has been switched to Brown’s Pond which has no PFOS contamination. However, that change necessitates water conservation recommendations since Brown’s Pond is a smaller body of water. Please continue to use the following guidance for water usage until further notice:
A press conference will be held in the Council Chamber of City Hall at 1:30 today, Tuesday, May 3, to update the press and the public concerning the quality of the City of Newburgh’s drinking water. Also, to update on future steps to permanently resolve the problem.
Above taken from Press Release From Mayor Kennedy released via email at 11:53am.
if you’ve been following my tenure you will know that I aggressively advocated for funding to improve our roads. Priority given to Mill and Will…these were in worse conditions that some of the streets in other countries that I’ve visited. Happy to announce that Mill Street is looking and feeling very different. Thanks to our DPW Department.
