There was some controversy at the latest Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees meeting. The topic of discussion was a resolution that will change policies and procedures regarding the mayor’s powers. The final decision was voted 3 to 2 with the Democratic majority voting for the mayor’s ability to set the municipal meeting agenda to be transferred to the village manager.
This past Tuesday, the League of Women Voters held an open discussion about saving the historical buildings of Larchmont and Mamaroneck. The panelists were Lynne Crowley from the Larchmont Historical Society and Donald March, the Town of Mamaroneck Historian. Did you know that the firehouse on Mamaroneck Avenue is part of our community history?
