During the planning process for this year’s Sinterklaas, it became apparent that an increase in police presence will be required to ensure the safety of the growing number of people expected to attend. In addition to the Village and State Police resources already allocated to this event, Deputies from the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Department will be assisting on a contract basis.
We would like to thank County Executive Marc Molinaro and County Sheriff Adrian Anderson for arranging to provide this additional coverage at a cost significantly lower than originally estimated.
We would like to recognize Kirchoff Consigli Construction Management for their sponsorship of this event. Their contribution will allow for the additional Police Officers that are needed and ensure that the community is able to enjoy this event again in 2014.
Thank you to everyone who has worked towards this solution, making the success and safety of Sinterklaas a priority.
Heath Tortarella, Mayor
