Help wanted Warwick - The town of Warwick is looking for part-time help at the Warwick Recycling Center. Retirees are welcome to apply. For additional information, call the Supervisor Michael Sweeton's office at 986-1120, ext. 241. From Supervisor Michael P. Sweeton's desk The Town of Warwick is very grateful to Scenic Hudson for its commitment of $928,000 toward the purchase of development rights on three additional farms in the Town of Warwick. This partnership with the town has ensured that farmers get 100 percent of their development rights paid and allows the town to stretch its own voter-approved PDR (purchase of development rights) funds. • Our Department of Public Works put the finishing touches on the new skating rink at the Pine Island park last week. At last report, young skaters were enjoying this new addition to our park system. Thanks to the Pine Island Recreation Committee, the town parks crew, the DPW and Councilman Leonard DeBuck for bringing this to fruition. • The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, January 13th at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
