Diana Juettner has served the town for almost 30 years. Monday, December 13 is her last meeting as a Councilwoman
Tonight (Monday, Dec 13) will be the final meeting of the Greenburgh Town Board for 2021. It's also Councilwoman Diana Juettner's last meeting as a Councilwoman. Diana has served the town for almost 30 years as a Town Board member - never losing an election!
After Councilwoman Juettner votes on the 2022 budget (there will be a slight tax cut next year---our third consecutive no tax hike budget), the Board will vote to name the lounge at the multipurpose center in honor of Diana Juettner's exceptional service to the town of Greenburgh during the past three decades.
Without Diana's advocacy the multipurpose center would not have been built. Diana played key roles in the library expansion, significant open space acquisition; our Aaa bond rating; the miles of additional sidewalks and safety enhancements being built around the town, the Nature Center, building affordable housing around town and much more. Years ago she convinced me to try something most people had not yet tried -e mails and the internet -- she was involved in our technology committee. She was a few years ahead of her time and Greenburgh was the first community in the region to have a government website. I became an e mail addict because of Diana.
Diana will be missed. She deserves the recognition and a big thank you for her hard work, dedication and accomplishments.
Our Town Board meeting starts at 8 PM Monday, December 13th at Town Hall. Only residents who wear masks can attend our meetings. PAUL FEINER, Greenburgh Town Supervisor
