Carmel, NY – Over the weekend, Putnam County Executive Kevin Byrne was invited to speak with residents of the Roaring Brook Lake Property Owners Association in Putnam Valley. Byrne gave a brief update on his administration priorities, early successes, and then followed this up with about an hour of Q&A. Topics included the Peekskill Hollow Road Bridge Project, the national migrant crisis affecting the Hudson Valley, proposed legislation about declaring Putnam a Constitutional County, and environmental concerns.
Byrne is the first County Executive to ever come before the Roaring Brook Lake residents to speak and answer questions.
Byrne stated, “I grew up in Putnam Valley and have many special memories from spending time at Roaring Brook Lake, where I literally learned to swim. It was great to be back, and I appreciate the opportunity to meet and speak with members of the community.”
