Mt Kisco Residents Promoting Local Business – Doing What Village Admin Did Not

Meeting on Wednesday, February 29 at 7:00 at the Mount Kisco Public Library

In the village election held in November 2011, Trustee Joseph Morreale, as quoted by Tom Auchterlonie of Chappaqua-Mount Kisco Patch, said “he is concerned about empty storefronts in the village, and would like to see an economic committee or office established.” Unfortunately, this is something else the current administration never did. If an economic committee or office was formed, the village may have had a plan on how to deal with the empty stores. Instead, of an economic committee, they resurrected an old public relations move and had a meeting with current commercial landlords. Like a similar meeting held years ago, this gave the mayor the opportunity to tell everyone about his “idears” which, without any follow through, will not change the village’s situation.

Thankfully, a few local residents have stepped in to help Mount Kisco businesses. Occupy Main Street, the brainchild of Sarah O’Grady and Maria Colaco, has been established to encourage Mount Kisco residents and other Westchester residents to patronize local businesses.

They will have their first Mount Kisco meeting on February 29, 2012 at 7:00 pm at the Mount Kisco Public Library and, quoting from their Facebook page, they “are hoping for a good turnout, and are interested in hearing all ideas and input for how to bring business to (and keep business in!) Mt Kisco!”
