The Nyack Village Board unanimously approved a Resolution at its meeting on January 24, 2019 to afford furloughed Federal Employees additional time, without penalty, to make certain payments which may have come due during the shutdown of certain departments of the United States government.
Specifically, the Village Board resolved to allow furloughed federal workers 45 days from the date that the shutdown ends to pay for Parking Permits, Water Bills, and Village taxes which may have come due during the government shutdown. Furloughed federal employees are directed to present proof of their employment to the Village Clerk, and all late fess and penalties for late payments will be waived for the 45 day period.
The Village Board expressed hope that any assistance given to affected federal employees might lessen any financial burden inflicted through no fault of those individuals themselves.

January 19th is Martin Luther King Day of Service, a time when friends and family gather to make King’s dream of community action a reality. If you would like to get involved over the long weekend, there will be a few events within the Village. You can make “birthday” bags from 10am to noon at Nyack Center. Director Kim Cross says these bags are “everything you’d want for a birthday” and go to children who look forward to having their turn to receive them.
On Monday, January 21st, the NAACP will host the 35th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Interfaith Commemorative Service at Pilgrim Baptist Church where you can gather in remembrance of Dr. King and the sentiment of community he embodies: one that we try to embrace year long within the Village of Nyack.
