The Villages: Nyack DPW Goes Green

This week in the villages: It’s a new year and things are slowly returning to “normal” after the holidays. In Nyack and South Nyack, the Zoning Board of Appeals will meet, as will the Nyack Board of Trustees. The Village of Nyack DPW has gone green: this year, no postcards will be mailed enumerating changes to the trash and recycling schedule; and discarded Christmas trees will be recycled for mulch. And the Town of Clarkstown is holding a blood drive.

Nyack “Fan Card”

Nyack has a new initiative to help make next year a little less tough on the local businesses we all know and love. It’s called the Nyack Fan Card, and the idea behind it is simple: For $20, you get a shopping card (purchasable online, or at 15 participating establishments listed here) that gives you significant discounts at participating shops and restaurants–savings well beyond the $20 cost of the card. The cards go live on January 1, 2021 and remain valid until March 31, 2021.
