Pelham Manor board votes to install four stop signs, appoints inspectors for village election


The Village of Pelham Manor Board of Trustees voted Jan. 22 to install four new stop signs. 

The signs are being placed on Monroe Street and Penfield Place where they meet Clay Avenue and on Hunter Avenue where it meets Grant Avenue and Oak Lane.

“We are just delighted that we can take a hard look at these issues and act on them,” said Mayor Jennifer Monachino Lapey.

The Clay Avenue signs will create a four-way stop and are being installed because the intersection is close to Prospect Hill Elementary School and the village yard.

Village Manager Lindsey Luft said there is “a large volume of residents and vehicles that go through this area with the traffic going in and out of the yard.” 

“We evaluate all of the traffic requests that come before us,” Luft said. “Stop signs are different in terms of amending our local code. We can do it through resolution because once we get through the evaluation process, it is easier to implement.”

The board appointed four inspectors for the village election that will be held March 19: Richard Genovese, Bridie Doino, Rocco Doino and Sydney Thayer. They will be paid $18.75 per hour for their work election day in the village, when two trustee seats will be on the ballot.

“I think every single one of these inspectors has performed work for us in the past and has been a very competent and fair-minded election inspector,” Lapey said. “I am proud of the independent spirit of the election inspectors.” 

Monachino Lapey swore in Julio Rivas as Pelham Manor’s newest police officer. Rivas, a Mount Vernon resident, began his law enforcement career in January 2021 in that city.
