There is currently an open position on the Board of Trustees and the Village is calling for any interested resident in serving the community to submit a letter of interest and resume detailing your qualifications to email@example.com by close of business Monday, September 18, 2023.
The Board of Trustees (BOT) is the legislative body of the Village, consisting of five elected residents of the Village responsible for the management and high-level policies of local government. An additional description can be found here
All candidates for trustee must be US citizens, 18 years or older, and residents of the Village of Briarcliff Manor.
The ideal candidate to serve on the Board of Trustees would have previous experience, education, or training with one or more areas relevant to municipal governance, including knowledge of any of the following:
- Public Policy
- Management of Organizations
- Urban Planning
The position requires candidates of the highest ethical integrity, a thick skin for criticism and complaints, no need for thanks, and a willingness to devote hours, and sometimes days, away from friends and family. Solid written and spoken communication skills, an ability to tolerate dissent, and an ability to quickly master a wide array of subject matter is warranted.
Previous experience on volunteer boards would be a plus, too.

Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips.
The Fire Chief would like to share some Safety Tips regarding carbon monoxide. Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide. Vehicles or generators running in an attached garage can also produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
- CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area, on every level of the home and in other locations where required by applicable laws, codes or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound.
- Test CO alarms at least once a month and replace them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low batteries. If the battery is low, replace it. If it still sounds, call the fire department – DIAL 911
- If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. Call for help from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel arrive.
- If you need to warm a vehicle, remove it from the garage immediately after starting it. Do not run a vehicle or any other fueled engine indoors, even if garage doors are open. Make sure the exhaust pipe of a running vehicle is not covered with snow.
- During and after a snowstorm, make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove, and fireplace are clear of snow build-up.
- A generator should be used in a well-ventilated location outdoors away from windows, doors and vent openings.
- Gas or charcoal grills can produce CO — only use outside.
