    Highland Mills - The following information comes from the monthly newsletter published and distributed by Woodbury Town Councilman James Skoufis: Local government Village elections are Tuesday, March 15, polls are open from noon to 9 p.m. on the top floor of the Highland Mills Firehouse. All eligible Village of Woodbury residents are designated to vote at the firehouse. In addition to electing a village mayor and two trustees, there will be three propositions on the ballot: 1. To change village elections from March to June; 2. To change the term length of village mayor from two to four years; and 3. To change the term length of village trustee from two to four years. The Village of Woodbury scheduled a public hearing on Feb. 8 to hear input on increasing the fines for outdoor watering during times of restriction. Thanks and farewell It is with deep regret that the town recently accepted the resignation of Parks Director Gilda Brennan. “She has been a mainstay in the parks department for countless years and her service and dedication to our town, especially our local children, will be sorely missed. We all wish her the very best going forward,” Skoufis wrote in his newsletter. Snow If you run into any weather-related issues that the town may be able to assist you with, please call the supervisor’s office at 928-7578, the highway department at 928-6912 and we will do our best to help however we can.
