In 2022, the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (“DANY”) had made inquiries with the Village regarding certain purchases made pursuant to a Village DASNY grant in the amount of approximately $250,000 that had been awarded to the Village for the renovation and upgrade of the Village Hall, including acquisition of office furniture. We are pleased to inform our residents that the issues and have been resolved and the Village has received all funds due under the grant. In the interest of disclosure and open government, the Village is providing this summary of the inquires and the Village’s response. We are also please to confirm that the review of the procurement issues did not result in identification of any type of favoritism, kickbacks or similar illegal or similar improper activity in the procurement process. The issues identified arose from either policy failure or errors in the Village’s previously enacted procurement local law which has last been amended in 2017.
