Finally, I am extremely proud to announce that Joe Senerchia is now responsible for running the Department of Public Works and the Building Department for the Village of Pelham. Joe’s dedicated service to the Village is greatly appreciated and welcomed. All Village employees or residents who have concerns regarding DPW services, building department issues or emergency issues that arise should contact Joe directly. Of course, village personnel who encounter emergency issues should inform Joe first of the need for DPW or Building Department services.
