Moody's Investors Service Credit Analysis of the Town of New Windsor

The Town of New Windsor, NY's (Aa3) credit profile benefits from its moderately-sized, growing tax base located in Orange County (Aa2 stable) with above average resident wealth and income. The town's financial position remains strong and management anticipates running an operating surplus for fiscal 2022. This helps to offset its elevated long-term liabilities, mainly driven by a high OPEB liability. The debt burden will remain manageable despite the expected increase over the next 3 years.

New Windsor awarded two grants totaling $15,500,000

Supervisor Meyers is pleased to announce that the Town of New Windsor has been advised by New York State that the town has been awarded two grants totaling approximately $15,500,000.

One grant was awarded by the state for the ongoing expansion and upgrading of the town’s wastewater treatment plant and the other grant was awarded for upgrading one of our buildings used by our senior citizens.

The wastewater treatment grant of $15,000,000 is going to have a positive impact for our taxpayers in the town’s sewer districts. The second grant of $500,000 will be used for repairs and upgrades of the Marasco Center building utilized by our senior citizens.

I want to acknowledge all the hard work by our staff in putting together the necessary grant applications and in particular our town attorney’s office and the town’s engineer Mike Weeks from McGoey, Hauser and Edsall Engineering.

Job well done by all!

Update from Supervisor Meyers: NWPD Bike Patrol, Dog Park & New K9 Officer

From Supervisor Meyers:

We are introducing a few new additions for New Windsor that have been in planning stages for a couple of months. Beginning tomorrow, July 6, a police bicycle patrol will begin in our housing developments. We have had six of our officers in training for this detail. I think it is important for our officers to interact with our residents on a regular basis. My belief is that this type of patrol will be helpful in accomplishing that goal. The officers assigned to this detail are anxious to get started. There is a schedule of the dates and locations of these patrols and all our housing developments are included. Lieutenant Fred Fayo will provide oversight of this unit. The bikes will be rack mounted on a marked police vehicle and the officer will determine when and how long to patrol on the bike. I have heard repeatedly from our residents that they do not know any of the police officers, and I hope that this will create positive interaction for our residents with our officers.

I have been discussing a town dog park for New Windsor for a number of weeks and the park is now a reality. The park is located at our San G Park on Union Ave across from Heritage school. There are two sections for different size dogs and both have shade structures and water bowl filling stations. The gate key required for use of the dog park will be available at the town clerk’s office starting on Thursday, July 8.

In addition, as of this past Friday, we have a new K-9 unit assigned to our police patrol unit. Officer Joe Bell and his partner Duke graduated after months of training and will now be on patrol helping to keep New Windsor a safe place for all of us.
