New and Improved Website

This past week, the Village of Nyack launched a new and improved website, with a clean appearance and simple navigation and functionality. Changes include a calendar with meetings and agendas, “frequently asked questions” and “I want to” tabs, information on capital projects, and a portal for bids and requests for proposals. All departments have a dedicated page which is easily accessible from the home page.

The website also features a new Citizen Portal that will allow people to report concerns, such as potholes, street light outages, etc. This portal will allow residents to track the request from start to finish via email notifications.

The village welcomes any suggestions you may have. Feel free to contact them using the links at the bottom of the homepage.

  • Thurs 10/24 from 2-4p, Rockland County Department of Health Family Planning office, 14 S Main Street, 2nd floor, Spring Valley.

The vaccine will be give to anyone six months and older. The vaccine is free of charge if you are 65 years and older (please bring identification with proof of age), have Medicare or Medicaid (please bring your card), or are uninsured or underinsured.

No appointments are needed. There is a $20 fee for those six months through 64 years old. Cash or checks will be accepted. Those with private health insurance will be provided with a receipt to submit to your health insurance for possible reimbursement.

The Health Department is giving the quadrivalent flu vaccine, which does not contain preservatives, including thimerosal. The vaccine is called quadrivalent because it offers protection against four different flu virus strains that research shows will be most common during this flu season: two influenza (flu) A virus strains and two influenza B virus strains. It is recommended that you wait for 15 minutes after being vaccinated, so you can be observed for any reaction. For more information about the flu and the flu vaccine clinics, please visit

News from Congresswoman Nita Lowey’s Office

Last week, Nita Lowey was at Bowline Point Park in Haverstraw with Rockland Legislator Harriet Cornell and representatives from Environmental Advocates of NY, Riverkeeper, Save the Sound, Sierra Club, Scenic Hudson, and Oceana highlighting the need to robustly fund the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

LWCF has supported more than 90 projects across the district and has provided more than $4 billion to states to protect historic grounds, preserve wild habitats, and create recreational spaces. To protect communities across Rockland and Westchester Counties, our nation’s endangered wildlife, the safety of our precious natural resources, and the future of our environment and public health, they’re calling on the Senate to ignore President Trump’s fiscal year 2020 budget request, as the House Appropriations Committee has, and adequately fund EPA and LWCF.
