Pelham Manor village board approves enhanced 911 pact with county

During a meeting last month, the Pelham Manor village board approved a five-year intermunicipal agreement with Westchester County governing continued enhanced 911 services. 

“This agreement is something that we have entered into in the past,” said Mayor Jennifer Monachino Lapey. “We have had an opportunity to review this agreement, and I am comfortable with this. It is a great thing to use in our town.”

Also during the March 13 meeting, board members considered a playground proposed for the former Our Lady of Perpetual Help elementary school at 575 Fowler Ave.

OLPH has rented most of the building to a school run by ACDS, the Association for Children with Down Syndrome. The school is requesting a site-plan amendment because there is no playground on the property. 

The site plan amendment requires review by the planning board and the board of trustees, said Village Manager Lindsey Luft.

“This is exactly what the planning board serves us for, happy to hear, and it is a good idea,” Monachino Lapey said.
