Pelham Manor Board of Trustees confirms November polling station will be at OLPH


Village of Pelham Manor officials discussed voting locations regarding the November election for Pelham Manor residents at the board of trustees meeting on Oct. 12. 

The board informed the public on voting locations for November. “In the past, polling locations for Pelham Manor residents have been here, at the apparatus floor of the fire house and Our Lady of Perpetual Help church (OLPH), however this year all voting will be at OLPH, there will be no voting at the apparatus floor of the fire house this November,” Village Manager John Pierpont shared. Any questions can be brought to the Pelham Manor Town Clerk or Westchester Board of Elections. 

Trustees discussed their continued work on Executive Order 203. “We are so fortunate of the number of people willing to participate in the committee, we were able to select a representation of our community,” Trustee and Police Commissioner Bridget Bennett stated. The police reform community committee consists of five residents: Natalie Marrero, Chris Ganpat, Steve Shekane, Daryl Jackson and Kevin To.

A proposal for a new pizzeria was made, at the location currently occupied by Knuckleheads Tavern on Boston Post Road. The proposed pizzeria is a coal-fired establishment. “A coal-fired pizzeria is a wonderful option for the residents of Pelham Manor,” Mayor Jennifer Monachino Lapey said. The possible environmental impact of a coal-fired establishment was not mentioned during the meeting.

Pavement work near Prospect Hill School has begun, and the school’s principal has been contacted to notify families of any street disturbances.

As of Monday there are four confirmed active cases of Covid-19 in Pelham Manor. The board continues to stress to residents to follow all health and safety protocols, wear masks and social distance while in public.
