Mayor Murphy in His Office

I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that 2 great contributors to the Village of Saugerties -- DPW Superintendent Bob Ciarlante and Village Clerk Mary Frank -- have announced that they will be retiring soon.  Bob will be leaving his position on May 31st and Mary on June 30th.
Not to take anything away from the great people who will be replacing them -- Bob Fanelli for DPW and Lisa Mayone for Village Clerk -- but I will really miss Bob and Mary ... both in terms of their professionalism and their friendship.  If you encounter either of them, please wish them well in their retirements.  Saugerties has greatly benefitted from their work done for the Village and their willingness to 'go beyond' and their overall generosity.  We'll miss you two!
