So just a quick recap about the local Nyack democratic primary election. Elijah Mechlin received 474 votes and. Marie Lorenzini finished in second place, with 430 votes and will be the other Democratic nominee,and. Joe Carlin finished in third place, with 317 votes. So both Elijah and Marie will be the Democratic nominees for the November general election. Rumor has it that Joe Carlin will be running as an Independent in the November election as well.
As you may have noticed, the village has recently installed new Munimeter machines in the downtown. These new machines replace the old Munimeters which after more than a decade of heavy use had started to show their age with frequent breakdowns and constant maintenance required. In addition to coming with bigger and brighter screens to make it easier to see the instructions, the new meters use a pay-by-plate system, instead of a pay-and-display system. What this means is that you have to enter your license plate number when you pay for parking, but you no longer have to display a receipt on your dashboard. So once you’ve paid the meter, you can simply continue on with your errands without needing to walk back to your car. The only issue that I see is if you use the App you are charged a $.35 fee which in a small village seems expensive.
The village will be milling and repaving three streets in the coming weeks. Construction is expected to start the week of July 22. The streets scheduled to be paved are:
- E. Catherine Street
- Third Avenue between North Franklin and Broadway
- Burd Street between Piermont Avenue and the river
