Fourth in a series.
As this space wrote, there are quite a few projects and tasks that need to be performed in Mount Kisco. Some of these are small capital projects while others might involve hiring a new employee or passing a new local law. Others are projects, like the one highlighted today, are simple projects that can make the village look a little nicer.
As the Village Board was wrapping up the budget last year, a small amount was set aside to plant some bushes for screening along the train tracks near the South Moger parking lot. Mount Kisco’s retail properties are a large part of its tax base. Shoppers walking along South Moger currently look at the back end of properties on Maple Avenue (see below). Since there is $1,000 in the budget for this project, the Village should move to plant the screening. Hopefully, planting a few bushes to make the Village’s downtown look a little nicer will not be caught in a bureaucratic trap.
If the screening can’t be planted, hopefully, the garbage can be collected.
