Decoding Village Agendas – October 27, 2014

October 24, 2014

Work Session of the Village Board

7: 30 p.m.

(Open to Public  –  Not Televised)

  1. Discussion with Chazen Representatives regarding options for corrosion control as mandated by the Westchester County Department of Health.  In July, the Village Board asked that Chazen Company explore various options for corrosion control and update their 2007 report to include more recent data.  The report from Chazen has been received and they are making a new recommendation for an anti-corrosive additive other than zinc orthophosphate (ZOP) , known as Carus 8600.  The Dept. of Health has required the village to design, implement and test a corrosion control system at the Village’s well field as result of Copper exceedances.  The Board will be discussing the recommendation with the consultants.
  2. BFJ Planning – Updating Village Zoning regarding Customary Home Occupations. BFJ has been meeting with the Comprehensive Plan Committee to develop recommendations covering Customary Home Occupations.  The 2003 Comprehensive Plan called on this area of the code to be updated to reflect changes in how people work from their homes.  After extensive discussion with the committee, BFJ representatives will discuss their recommendations to the Board.  The goal is to  help existing home occupations to be legal, stream line enforcement and minimize potential adverse off-site impacts.   The proposed changes would eliminate the need for a special permit from the Village Board.
  3. Recommendations from the Croton Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee regarding a Riverwalk Connection along Eliot Way between Senasqua Park and the Croton Yacht Club.  The BPC has toured the area and discussed potential improvements with the Village Engineer as well as others with expertise.  They are proposing a 3-phase project that would be done over time to improve the access from south (Elliot Way) to the north of the Yacht Club area.

Pumpkin Curry Recipe from Croton-on-Hudson Farmers Market

October 24, 2014

Happy Friday from Nicole at Down to Earth Farmers Markets, the crew behind the Croton-on-Hudson Farmers Market.

Looking to Sunday, I wanted to share some updates from the market. It runs every Sunday, from now through November 23rdFind us in the municipal parking lot, right off the Route 9 exit.

The fall harvest is in full swing! The market has lots crisp, juicy apples, cauliflower, squash, greens, mushrooms, and MUCH more in the produce line-up. There is also fresh – never frozen – fish from American Pride Seafood, Wave Hill Breads, pickles, locally-sourced Italian foods from Trotta Foods, and quiches and more from Pika’s Farm Table.

This Sunday, we welcome musician Brian Vegh on the Celtic violin from 11 am to 1pm.

AND Bombay Emerald Chutney Company will be there with her amazing Indian specialties. To get ready for the market, she email me this recipe yesterday and I wanted to share it with you. Sounds deeeelish!

Pumpkin Curry with Cranberry Chutney and Ayurvedic Spices.


2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 small pumpkin, about 5″ in diameter, diced into small cubes
Bombay Emerald Cranberry Chutney
Bombay Emerald Ayurvedic spices
1/4 t fenugreek
1/4 t cumin
1 cup water


Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Fenugreek, 1/4 teaspoon of cumin to hot oil. Add pumpkin to it. Add 1/4 teaspoon of each of the following of our ayurvedic spices: turmeric, coriander powder, black salt (desired amount), gram masala. Add 1 cup of water and bring it to boil. Lower the heat and cook for 4 minutes or until pumpkin is tender to your taste. Add two/three table spoons full of our cranberry chutney or desired amount of chutney to the pumpkin and simmer it for one more minute.
