[ARCHIVED] Ethics board has two openings---looking to hire crossing guard (Ardsley Road/Ft Hill Road)

Earlier this week, we were advised that two members of our Board of Ethics resigned their positions with that Board. One of the Board members who resigned indicated that family members are ill -taking up his time. The other doesn't have the time to devote to the volunteer position. We invite residents from the Town of Greenburgh, regardless of their political affiliations, to apply to the Town Board for consideration. Applicants with prior interest and experience in ethical considerations are encouraged to apply. Resumes should be sent to

The Greenburgh Police department hopes to hire a crossing guard for the Ft Hill Road/Ardsley Road intersection in early October. Although they have potential candidates for the position - if a resident who lives near the intersection is interested - they should apply by Monday at noon. Send resume to

On Monday night the Commissioner of Public Works, Victor Carosi, Captain Frank Farina, Sgt. Nick Reckson (traffic safety) and our traffic consultant met with residents to discuss a proposed traffic light at Ft Hill Road and Ardsley Road. Most of the residents did not support the traffic light –were concerned about possible traffic jams. We promised to take some lesser action steps first to see if we can make the intersection safer for motorists or pedestrians. Captain Frank Farina came up with a very good initial action step that we will implement soon. We will hire a school crossing guard. The salary is $13,075. Duties: assisted school children in crossing traffic intersections at an assigned post during the hours when children are entering and leaving school. It’s a part time position. I will also ask that we making the school crossing location safer—will be working on that initiative. Our personnel office needs to comply with state civil service hiring requirements. We will try to implement the crossing guard suggestion very soon. This is the e mail I received from Captain Farina. Appreciate how responsive the police department has been.


Chief Ryan has been advised of my attendance at the meeting on Monday night with Sgt. Reckson. We all concur that the below Crossing Guard addition is appropriate.

Regarding this meeting. I suggest we create a new Crossing Guard position at the location. It is the one solution that gives immediate visibility and is the quickest to implement.

It will also enable the department to have eyes on the location to evaluate the situation on a regular basis.
