Page Ten The Rockland County Times, Haverstraw, N. Y., March 11, 1971 HAverstraw 9-2000 Democrats Call Fire Alarm Boxes Waste of Money In an almost linal comment on the village campaign, West Hav ­ erstraw Democratic candidates refuted the claims made by their opponents on certain questions raised in the election battle. Mayor Fred Seminara, Tru.stee James Mackey and trustee hope ­ ful Clayton Robinson, his running mates, issued a joint statement. They said that the Republicans in West Haverstraw should exert some pressure on the Republicans in New City in getting action on the county police force. The Democrats in West Hav ­ erstraw have teen on public rec ­ ord in favor of a county police force for years, it was claimed. The three candidates also said that the installation of fire alarm call boxes on village streets would be a waste of taxpayer's money. The fire alarm boxes were line in the days before tele ­ phones or police radios. It was noted that the village installed a fire alarm system in every fireman's home. The Democrats said that the village has been exploring a new village hall, including consider ­ ation of the West Haverstraw Elementary School, but the school district has not made a decision as to whether to declare jt sur ­ plus. ” The board is also investigating the site of the present treatment plant off Samsondale ave. The plant will be demolished with the const! uetion of the new plant on Gras.sy Point I'd, ,, The village board must first determine the fiscal feasibility of such a project and determine whether a new hall can be ac ­ quired or established at a cost village taxpayers can afford.

They also cited the $115,000 the village board saved its taxpayers from town police costs and also the summer recreation program utilized by over 400 youngsters.

Elementary school children are on split sessions and the propected view is the same thing happening to junior high and high school children. Bringing in more hous ­ ing is just not good common .sense, it was stated. Mr. Confirti added: “ The in ­ cumbent Democrat says T sit on my past record of holding the line on taxes ’ and I say with all the new' ratables, why haven ’ t the taxes gone down if the serv ­ ices have not gone up? ” Cyril Timlin and Thomas R.

Residents said they had signed receipts for registered letters sent to the school, although the letters had not been ackknowl- edged, and ignorance of their receipt was professed at the meeting. Storm water on their property has been increased since the building of the new school it was charged. The Board took no action on the thorny issue of boundary lines for attendance in the different schools. FEAST OF PURIM Purim, the Hebrew holiday, is now being observed by Jewish congregations.

Times-Torpey Photo. Caufaglione Says Gvic Group Wants Bosico Louis Caufaglione, chairman of the Village of Haverstraw Civic Association, announced that the well known civic group was endorsing the candidacy of An ­ thony J. Bosico for mayor, and Charles L. Reicherter and Thom ­ as F. Ryder jr, for trustees in the village election. This organization received much publicity in a petition drive they sponsored against building hi-rise apartments in the village. Over 750 village residents signed their petition, which was turned down by the Village Board. A hi-rise apartment is now under construc ­ tion on Hudson ave. next to the Presbyterian church, and the Democratic candidates for re- election are running on a plat ­ form which calls for the tearing down of private homes and build ­ ing hi-rise apartments in several sections of the Village. Mr. Caufaglione, in announcing the Civic Association's support for Bosico, Reicherter and Ryder said, \The incumbent Democratic candidates and members of their group have controlled Haver ­ straw politics tor the past 40 years, and they have been such poor administrators during this time that they are completely responsible for the present condi ­ tions which exist in several areas of our village. The sad fact is that the state of affairs we find our Village in is directly due to their inability to cope with the problems confronting us. Our vil ­ lage has suffered because of their lack of leadership.\ The spokesman for the Civic Association also said, “ Compare the qualifications of the present administration with those of the Bosico-Reicherter-Ryder team. Decide for yourself who is better qualified to serve the interests of the homeowners and taxpay ­ ers. Take a good look around the village and see for yourself what the present administration has done to our onee-prosperous community. The only standards established by the Democratic administration are those of in ­ competence, mismanagement, in ­ effectiveness, and lack of lead ­ ership, to name just a few.\ BAKE SALE SATURDAY AT STONY POINT A bake sale will be held at Trinity United Methodist church.

The mayoral candidate said he spoke for himself and his trustee running mates, Kenneth Missar and Thomas Malone, in criticiz- ig the widening of Railroad ave., in which the present administra ­ tion takes pride. “ Do they also take pride in the fact that the remaining sidewalks won ’ t accommodate two people walking abreast, or the moving of utility poles dangerously close to houses? ” asked Mr. Aventur* ato. He said the sensible solution would have been one-side park ­ ing during certain hours. Discussing claims about tax rates, the Republicans find it odd that the village government has not dared to utter one word about a projection of the rate for next year. Mr. Aventurato bitterly criti ­ cized the Conservative candidate for mayor, accusing him of being a “ spoiler ” whose nomination will deprive the people of a true choice. He said the enrolled Con ­ servatives are being sold down the river ” by “ political oppor ­ tunists. ” SPECIAL SECTION ON MASTER PLAN This week ’ s Times contains a special section on the village mas ­ ter plan.

POLITICAL POLITICAL POLITICAL POLITICAL SAVE YOUR HOME // The present Democratic Village administration (including the incumbent can­ didates, Gamboli, Taylor and Fitzula) have a notorious scheme to demolish a large portion of our ViUage (1st, 2nd, 3rd Streets from the Elks Club to Main Street) and transport the hundreds of displaced residents into ‘ commonly called LOW- COST HOUSING ’ (Girling) on the ‘ 8-10 acres across from St. Peter ’ s Church ’. (Gamboli) According to our Village Board, this project will be sponsored by private en ­ terprise . . . NOT the Federal Government. Consequently, the Village has no jurisdiction ... no right to force the people to leave their homes or sell them just to make way for hi-rise apartments. Any such plan by our Village Board would not only be immoral but illegal. What is equaUy terrifying is their plan to force the people to relocate in the swamp area “ across from St. Peter ’ s Church ” (Gamboli). Will these displaced residents be forced to live in LOW-COST HOUSING, hi-rise or otherwise? What will prevent the Department of Social Welfare from filling these apartments with welfare tenants as happened in RIVERCREST apartments? Is this just an excuse to aUow a builder to erect LOW-COST apartments across from St. Peter ’ s Church in an area zoned on our present zoning map for INDUS ­ TRY? Who would live in the shadow of the enormous ORANGE & ROCKLAND- CONSOLIDATED EDISON Power Plants (2-4 in number) but welfare recipients forced to live there? Will this plan raise the projected Village of Haverstraw population from 18,589 to 20,000 or more? Who will pay the extra cost to build more sewer treatment facilities to accommodate this increased population? It should be not ­ ed that our existing sewer treatment plant, plus the proposed secondary plant, will only take care of 11,000 residents. What about our schools? What effect will it have on our pocketbooks where school taxes are concerned? Our Village population is now approximately 7,800 residents. Supervisor McAlevey recently noted that when you double the popu ­ lation, you TRIPLE THE SCHOOL TAX Do you want our Village to have a populatiton of 20,000 with increased taxes, more welfare tenants, more crime, snd all the other evils associated with ‘ city ’ status? We certainly do NOT! That ’ s why we say .... BOSICO ELECT REICHERTER RYDER (This is a public service message sponsored by the Village of Haverstraw Civic Association.)
