Next NTRA Membership Meeting will be Thursday, October 26, beginning at 7:00pm

Esteemed Northern Tuxedo Neighbors,

The NTRA Executive Committee is planning the next membership meeting, to be held at the Tuxedo Town Hall, 1 Temple Drive, Tuxedo, Thursday evening, October 26th, 7:00 pm. We’ve invited our new Chief of Police, Arthur Abbott, to come and dialogue with us. We also invited David Maikisch, our Building Inspector, who will talk with us about concerns on Bramertown Road raised by members at our previous meeting with Mike Rost. Mike asked him to attend. If you have any points you’d like our guests to respond to, please send us your questions so that our speakers will be prepared to answer them. We want them to feel welcome and connected to our organization.

It’s also time for our annual Executive Committee elections to be held. The current members, Ken English, Claudia Baktiary, and Bahar Ertac are willing to continue to serve if acceptable to the membership. The Vice President’s position is vacant and we are hoping to encourage a member to join us.

Only members in “good standing” are allowed to vote and run for office. Membership dues, twenty-five dollars per family, run on a calendar year so renewal will happen after January. If you have neighbors who want to join, please encourage them to attend.

If you have any concerns or suggestions that you’d like the Executive Committee to consider, please send us an E-mail so that we can address your ideas.

We look forward to seeing you!

Sincerely,

The Executive Committee
Ken English, Claudia Bakhtiary, Bahar Eratac

Thanks to all who attend NTRA Membership Meeting, Update from Mike Rost

Esteemed NTRA Members.

I’d like to thank those of you who made it out to the meeting last night. I know that some of our members I spoke with wanted to come but life gets in the way.

I heard from many that they enjoyed the conversational format and learned a lot about what’s going on in town.

I personally want to thank our Supervisor, Mike Rost, for taking the time to meet with us and for trying to respond to all of our questions and concerns. I thought he explained in detail the town budget, both inherited and current conditions. He also gave valuable information on Tuxedo Farms and the status of the Mulch Facility on Long Meadow Road. Below is a message I received from him today. As you can see, he’s responding to the concerns raised, especially those close to our members and neighbors on Benjamin Meadow Road. I’ll continue to communicate with Mike to get updates on these and other issues.

As I said last night, our organization is only as strong as our membership. If you have not re-joined, I hope you will do so ASAP. Please encourage your neighbors to join us. Having an active and consistent membership helps us be proactive around issues of special concern to Northern Tuxedo and strengthens our voice to get results.

We also exist to bring neighbors together for social events. We’re planning a summer social for Saturday, June 24th, in the afternoon, for members in good standing. If you’ve paid your 2017 dues you will be receiving an invitation soon. Hold the date!

For those of you who may have been disappointed with last night’s forum, my apologies.
As an organization, we do hope to represent the important issues that affect our area.
I tried to give equal voice to all who attended. If members have special concerns, when brought to the attention of the Executive Committee and membership, we consider the issues and together decide on how best to respond.

Special thanks to Claudia and Nader for always coming early and setting up, to Donna for registering members, for Bahar for managing our accounts, and to my wife Lynn for her support.

A special message to Kristy Apostolides, our President, who’s taking care of family. We’re thinking of you.

I look forward to seeing you June 24th the social!

Best regards.

Ken English
