BY ORDER OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE VILLAGE OF MONTGOMERY
MONSERRATE RIVERA-FERNANDEZ, VILLAGE CLERK
NEW YORK STATE POLICE REFORM AND REINVENTION COLLABORATIVE
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Montgomery hereby invites public input to assist the Village in the development of a Plan to improve police force deployments, strategies, policies, procedures and practices in accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order 203, entitled “New York State Police Reform and Reinvention Collaborative.”
The Village’s objective is to adopt a Plan that is tailored to the needs of the Village and that will promote the improvement of police agency and community relationships based upon trust, fairness, accountability and transparency and that further seeks to reduce any racial disparity in policing.
In order to further facilitate your input, the Village has scheduled open public forums to be held in the Village of Montgomery Senior Center, 35 Bridge Street, Montgomery, NY, 12549 on Thursday, March 4th at 6:00pm and on Thursday, March 18th at 6:00pm
Future dates and times to be announced.
PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE FOR ANY CHANGES TO THE FOREGOING DUE TO ONGOING AND EVOLVING RESTRICTIONS RELATED TO THE PANDEMIC.
Dear Friends and Neighbors in Montgomery,
We want to let you know that the Montgomery Free Library will be limiting our hours in the coming months due to COVID's impact on our income.
Unlike most other libraries that are funded by their communities' tax budgets, our Library is solely dependent on donations from the community, the Village and the Town, as we have been since 1915. Although our funding from the Village and Town is stable, our day-to-day income and donations are reduced due to lack of in-person library use.
So, due to circumstances related to the pandemic this past year, the Library has suffered a deficit of thousands of dollars.
The Library is a valuable asset to your community and its loss would be tragic. Not only will the residents be losing their local library, but also access to the RCLSsystem, leaving them with no library at all.
Please donate if you can.
If you bought just 2 books a year, that would cost you about $50. If just 200 people in our Village donated that amount to the Library, we would have enough money to get us through this COVID period until we're able to fully open again. But any amount would be greatly appreciated. And just spreading the word to everyone you know would give us a fighting chance of saving the Library.
To make a donation to
THE MONTGOMERY FREE LIBRARY
mail or drop off your donation to the Library at 133 Clinton St. Montgomery, NY 12549
Thank you so much, your friends at the Montgomery Free Library.

Today we are living in one of the most defining moments of our lifetime. The national headlines, cable networks, and social media channels will effectively chronicle the stories and headlines of the day. However 10, 20 or even 50 years from now, the questions from future generations will become more personal. They will wonder and ask: What was it like for you? How did the community respond? What impact did it have on the village, businesses, schools, churches, family, friends and daily life?
