A state agency had determined that a grant to a property in Sleepy Hollow owned by the Village Attorney Janet Gandolfo was handled properly by the Village's Downtown Revitalization Corporation, (SHDRC). New York State's Main Street grant for work on the residential building on Clinton Street led to a controversy in which it was charged that the property should not have qualified for the $4,450 grant, among the 19 awarded to the Village. The Office of Community Renewal stated in a letter that, ''all of the assisted properties were eligible."
Sleepy Hollow Village Trustee Karin Wompa received the overwhelming support of the Democratic Committee (in a larger than usual turnout) last month to challenge Mayor Ken Wray in the March 18 election.
Joining Wompa on the Democratic and Responsive Government Party lines for three available trustee positions are incumbent Bruce Campbell, former Trustee Jose Chevere and Philipse Manor resident Mary Carroll Linder.
For the second time in less than five years, the Village of Irvington is considering an application to build a major senior living facility within its borders. Less than a year after the Continuum Company walked away from its proposal to build a 100,000 sq. ft. assisted living and memory care facility on four-and-a-half acres at 30 South Broadway, the Maryland-based Brightview chain of senior living properties has submitted plans for a 150-unit complex on eight acres currently owned by the Carrafiello family at 88-94 North Broadway.
