From the Mayor

Dear Larchmonters,

I’m going to try and keep this month’s letter brief, since I know we’re all busy enjoying the beautiful late Spring weather! 

Before diving in, here's a quick reminder to follow the Village of Larchmont on social media to get daily updates on all things #Larchmont!

Recent Events

Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony

On Thursday, May 26, we remembered those who gave their lives in service to our country with the Larchmont Mamaroneck Memorial Day Parade. It was great to be back after a 2-year hiatus. Thanks to Carol Casazza Herman for being an excellent Grand Marshal, to Joyce Callahan for organizing the entire parade including the hot dogs afterward, and to everyone who marched and who came out to wave.

LFD and LPD Medal Day Ceremony

Prior to the parade, the Board joined the LPD and LFD in the Village Hall Court Room for their first medal day ceremony since COVID. In addition to recognizing outstanding service provided by Larchmont's bravest and finest to the residents of the Village, including lifesaving medical care and maintaining public safety, both Departments’ staff members were lauded for their efforts and accomplishments with continuity of operations and medical care during COVID-19, and rescues and responses during Hurricane Ida. Our public safety personnel strive each and every day to provide the highest level of service to our residents and visitors alike.

Village Business

Facility Tour

When I became Mayor in 2016, I instituted an annual tour of the Village’s facilities for the Board of Trustees. I thought it was important for our local elected leaders to lay eyes on these assets and gain a familiarity and understanding of what role they play, issues they may be facing and needs there may be for the future.

This year the tour group grew, since we not only have new-ish Trustees, but also a new Assistant Administrator and a new Assistant Civil Engineer. So off we went to visit the Water Tank and Pump Station, the Maxwell Avenue Sanitation Yard, the DPW Yard, Flint Park and Sherwood pump stations, Firehouse and Police Station, curbing installation and water line replacement work on Monroe, and the Larchmont Reservoir Dam. Led by Village Administrator Justin Datino, we spent 4 hours in unadulterated local government bliss! Thanks to Village employees Rick Vetere, Henry Oswald, LPD Chief McNerney, LFD Chief Caparelli, and Mike Schnabel, as well as Frank Giordano of the Joint Sanitation Commission, for providing a closer look at each of their operations that provide the best-in-class services to our residents. Here are some photos from our tour.

Cable Franchise Agreement Negotiations and Public Comment

The Village’s current franchise agreements with Verizon and Altice are expiring and we have begun the process of negotiating new franchise agreements with both cable operators. A public hearing is an important part of franchise negotiations, in which the Village seeks public comment on Verizon and Altice’s past performance and our community’s future cable-related service needs. We have scheduled the public hearing for Monday, June 20 at 7:30PM in the Village Hall Court Room.

Franchise renewal is the best opportunity for municipalities to assert their rights with respect to their cable operators and to obtain important benefits in return for granting the cable operator the right to use its public rights-of-way. These benefits include, but are not limited to:

  1. Strong and enforceable customer service standards;
  2. A state-of-the-art cable system;
  3. Protections of the public rights-of-way;
  4. The right to impose franchise fees for the cable operator’s use of the public rights-of-way and improved franchise fee accountability;
  5. Reporting requirements on the cable operator;
  6. Legal protections for the Village; and
  7. Better mechanisms to enforce the franchise agreement.

These are just some of the potential benefits available through franchise renewal. Citizens may address these items or any other cable-related service needs that are important to them. Comments may be made by Village of Larchmont residents only.

Pride Month

Finally, as you pass by Village Hall this month, you may notice that we are flying the Pride flag. The Village Board felt it was important to participate this way in Pride month and make the statement that we support the rights of all members of our community.

See you around the Village,

Mayor Lorraine Walsh

We are so lucky to have such amazing high school students in our district! Katie Loga, Larissa Bertini, Marion Karp have created Students for Sustainable Solutions, which is an environmental advocacy group within Mamaroneck High School’s Original Civic Research and Action (OCRA) program. They have organized an exciting one-month pilot project with notable Larchmont restaurants Turquoise, the Grange, Apiary, and LaLa Taqueria in which they have helped them switch from single-use plastic products to more environmentally friendly products for the month of June. They are getting a sense of customers' experience using these products through the use of surveys.
