After the recent coyote attack of a 6 year old girl in Rye New York the Greenburgh Police Department has been receiving many calls reporting the sighting of coyotes throughout all areas of the Town. Many residents are also inquiring what can be done to remove them from the populated areas of the Town. The Department has prepared the following informational bulletin to assist residents in understanding the coexistence between people and coyotes and actions the department will take when a coyote is observed.

Wild animals such as coyotes are protected by laws established by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The Eastern coyote is firmly established in New York. They live in New York as an integral part of our ecosystem. People and coyotes can usually coexist if the natural fear of people that coyotes have is maintained.

If you observe a coyote which appears to be lingering in an area and does not move on when you make noise you should report it to the police. However, in most cases there is little a police officer or animal control officer will be able to do other than chase it away from a populated area. Of course if any animal is acting aggressively or has attacked a human being or other animal immediately contact the police department.

Below are some steps you can take to reduce/prevent coyote problems from occurring. For additional information see the following State web site wildlife damage control page.

· Do not feed coyotes

· If you see a coyote, be aggressive in your behavior - make loud noises, wave your arms, throw sticks and stones.

· Do not allow pets to run free.

· Do not feed pets outside.

· Make any garbage inaccessible to coyotes and other animals.

· Eliminate availability of bird seed. Coyotes are attracted to the concentration of birds and rodents that come to feeders. If you do feed birds, clean up waste seed and spillage.

· Fencing your yard may deter coyotes. The fence should be tight to the ground, preferably extending six inches below ground level.

· Remove brush and tall grass from around your property to reduce protective cover for coyotes

· Teach children to appreciate coyotes from a distance.

· Regulated hunting and trapping increases the "fear" coyotes have towards people.

· Ask your neighbors to follow these same steps.

Coyotes and People

Coyotes provide a great deal of benefits to New Yorkers thru observation, photography, hunting and trapping. However, not all interactions are pleasant. Some coyotes in suburbia have lost their fear of people. This can result in a dangerous situation. A coyote that does not fear people should be considered dangerous. Coyotes in residential areas quickly learn to associate food with people. Suburban coyote food (garbage, pet food, pets) is saturated with human odor. Human behavior has changed to be non-threatening to coyotes (running into your home after seeing a coyote is behaving like prey). In short, food smells like people and people behave like prey. Add to the mix people intentionally feeding coyotes and the potential for a coyote attack becomes very real.

Potential does exist for coyote attacks in New York. However, a little perspective may be in order. On average 650 people are hospitalized and one person killed by dogs each year in New York State. Nationwide, only a handful of coyote attacks occur yearly.

Coyotes and Pets

Of great concern to many people is the interaction of coyotes with cats or dogs. Do coyotes kill cats? Absolutely, but so do foxes, dogs, bobcats, vehicles, and even great horned owls. Cat owners need to be aware that cats allowed to roam free are at risk from many different factors. To protect your cat, keep it indoors, or allow it outside only under supervision. Coyotes in some areas appear to become "specialists" at catching and killing cats.

Do dog owners need to be concerned about coyotes? The answer is maybe. Conflicts between dogs and coyotes occur primarily in the months of March and April. It is during this time that coyotes are setting up their denning areas for the soon-to-arrive pups. Coyotes become exceptionally territorial around these denning sites in an attempt to create a safe place for their young. Coyotes view other canines (dogs) as a threat to their young. Essentially it comes down to a territorial dispute between your dog and the coyote. Both believe that your yard is their territory.

Owners of large and medium sized dogs have little to worry about. Coyotes, with an average weight of 35 lbs., know they are overmatched by large dogs and will yield part of their territory (your yard) to the dog. A confrontation may occur between a midsized dog and a coyote. Such confrontations, however, usually do not involve physical contact between the two animals. The dog and coyote usually come to an understanding on whose territory is whose.

Owners of small dogs have cause for concern. The outcome of a confrontation between a small dog and a coyote will depend a lot upon the behavior of the dog. A coyote knows it is physically superior to a small dog and expects the dog to be submissive. Trouble occurs when a small dog does not submit to a coyote. The coyote will discipline the dog to correct its inappropriate behavior. This discipline will continue until the dog submits or is eventually killed.

Very small dogs, e.g., small poodles, are viewed by coyotes as easy prey and are at risk to be killed year round.

Repairs to the water main are complete, water is again flowing and all services are restored. West Hartsdale Avenue is now open to traffic. Workers from the water department labored throughout the day to restore service after the water main break of early this morning. Emergency crews from ConEdison also responded quickly this morning and remained on site until the work was completed to assure our worker safety due to the high voltage lines overhead, gas mains nearby, and a utility pole within the excavated area of the water main break. Thank you to Con Edison and their Field Operations Supervisor for the support. This work was a combined effort with the Water Department and the Highway Department.
Water pressure will return to normal during the night and any discoloration should also subside before the morning.

A Long Island-based biotech company’s move to Westchester has been stopped in progress in the wake of its purchase this month by a Japanese pharmaceutical giant. County and union officials were confident the halt in construction for the relocation project is temporary.

OSI Pharmaceuticals Inc., maker of the cancer drug Tarceva, already has moved some employees and has planted its corporate sign at its new headquarters and consolidated laboratory and research space at Ardsley Park Science and Technology Center on Saw Mill River Road in the town of Greenburgh. But a shutdown in construction this month has resulted in layoffs for hundreds of building trades workers, many of whom have filed new unemployment benefit claims.

Paul Ryan, assistant business manager at Local 3, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in White Plains, said another scheduled round of layoffs last week on the 43-acre Ardsley campus left 10 electricians on the job, down from 140 previously employed by the electrical contractor on the estimated $50 million construction and renovations project. The partial shutdown also affects union carpenters, steamfitters and sheet metal workers, he said.

One union electrician, for whom the Ardsley project brought a paycheck after 10 months of unemployment, said his electrical crew suddenly was laid off during a lunch break.

Town of Greenburgh Building Inspector John Lucido said some work at the six-building site is continuing, including landscaping and sidewalk paving. “They fully plan on continuing the job as soon as they can revive it,” he said of OSI officials and contractors.

OSI in 2009 paid $27 million to Purdue Pharma Inc. for the Ardsley center, which includes six buildings and approximately 400,000 square feet of office and lab space. The company planned to bring 350 jobs to Westchester by consolidating operations currently spread among its Long Island locations in Melville and Farmingdale and Boulder, Colo., and Cedar Knolls, N.J.

Tokyo-based Astellas Pharma Inc. recently paid $4 billion in cash to acquire OSI and strengthen its position as a global leader in oncology therapeutics. Marketing Tarceva, a leading cancer drug, OSI reported $428 million in total annual revenues in 2009 and operating income of $153 million.

An official in Westchester familiar with the Astellas deal called it a hostile takeover.

Regarding the construction shutdown in Ardsley, “Astellas has not given us many details,” said OSI spokeswoman Kathy Galante in Melville. “They’re still looking to go through integration of the two companies” and plan to review the relocation to Westchester, she said.

Elected officials on Long Island and the Long Island Association Inc., the state’s largest business organization, recently sent Astellas officials a letter urging them to reconsider the OSI move from Long Island. “We have not heard back from them,” said Daniel R. Perkins, Long Island Association vice president for government affairs.

Westchester County Economic Development Director Laurence Gottlieb said OSI’s new owner likely is reviewing all contracts. “My expectation is that it’s not going to change the outcome” of the relocation to Westchester, he said. “They’ve already invested a lot of money.”

Changing the course of a project on the scale of OSI’s “is like doing wheelies with a cruise ship,” said Gottlieb. “It’s not that easy to do that. Once these things start, it’s pretty difficult to stop.”

Have a great weekend.

From: Dan [mailto:dan

Sent: Wednesday, June 23, 2010 2:55 PM
To: Paul Feiner

Supervisor Feiner,

My name is Dan and I live a little north of you in Armonk. I am on the Board of the Greenburgh Public Library Foundation. I wanted to send a quick email to tell you about a really positive experience I had in Greenburgh today. I’m sure you hear about all of the negative things…

My wife recently got a traffic ticket for a broken tail light and we had to go to the Greenburgh court today. (It was fixed and the ticket was dismissed), but that’s not the point of the email.

At court there was an elderly man who appeared in front of the judge and he was really having a hard time physically keeping up with what was going on. The Judge told him that he would have to pay a certain amount and he replied that he was on Social Security and could not afford it. The Judge told him to stick around until after everyone else was done (I’m sure she was trying to help him out). A woman who was sitting near this man went before the Judge when it was her turn, but after she was done she paused near her seat and wrote out a check to help this elderly man pay his fine.

I have to say that my wife and I were blown away by this act of kindness and I think it speaks in a very positive way about the character of people that are living in your community.

As I said before, I’m sure people are not shy in sending you negative things and I thought it was worthy to send this along to you. Good luck and I look forward to meeting you at some point in the future.



Greenburgh Town Board approves capital budget
The Greenburgh Town Board approved a capital budget of $6,089,000 tonight. The Board voted unanimously to increase funding for road resurfacing from my original proposal: $1,000,000 to $1,500,000. I agree with the Board. Some of our roads are in bad shape. We need to maintain our infrastructure. We will be going out to bid shortly. We anticipate that the roads will start being repaved in the fall –some of the work may not take place till the spring. We are currently evaluating all our roads.

The Town Board also authorized the expenditure of $68,000 (which was not in my original budget) for a space saver filing system. The town has been leasing space at WESTY’s to store police records. The cost: About $21,000 a year. With this new space saver filing system – police records will be stored at Town Hall. We will be able to avoid the $21,000 expenditure. The funding includes security for our records room. A final change to my proposed budget: the police dept requested $25,000 for a crime analysis software module which will help the police dept do their job efficiently.

AFV Park and Massaro Park Pool Study Volume 1 and Volume 2 on Town's Web Site
The Greenburgh Town pool and Massaro pool are nearing the end of its life. At some point within the next six years a new pool may have to be built to replace the aging pool. It’s very expensive –could easily exceed $5 million dollars.
To read a copy of the report – please visit our website: I will be asking the Town Board to hold a special meeting at AF Veteran park with pool users to discuss.
Please be advised that we’re trying to be proactive – we’re trying to plan ahead so that when the pool needs to be replaced that we will be prepared. Our goal: to avoid having to close down the pool for a season. It’s my hope that we will get some extra years out of the current pool and that we will be able to avoid having to spend millions on a new pool in the near future.

One of the reasons why NY is facing budget problems is because of pension abuses. I am sending the following letter to the entire Westchester delegation to the NYS Legislature. Would welcome your feedback on the suggestion.

A report by the Empire Center for New York State Policy indicated that statewide, 1,348 municipal retirees have pension benefits of more than $100,000 a year. 25 Westchester employees are among the top retirees who earned the highest pensions in the state of New York. Your article reported that the NY State Attorney General’s office is looking into pension padding- a practice that uses overtime to boost salaries so public employees can receive higher pensions.

A suggestion that could eliminate this kind of abuse. Employee pensions should be calculated on the BASE salary, without including overtime. This would discourage abuses and might discourage employees who are ready for retirement from seeking additional unnecessary overtime. If less senior employees in all governments are used for overtime it would also be much less expensive for the local governments.

Eliminating overtime abuses would reduce the cost of government without impacting vital services.


Greenburgh Town Supervisor

BATTLE OF THE BANDS—VOLUNTEERS WANTED---The farmer’s market officially opens on Saturday morning.

On June 19th the town will inaugurate our new and improved farmers market. There will be more farmers, vendors, food, excitement on E Hartsdale Ave--every Saturday morning from 8:30 AM to 1.
To kick off our new market, we are also organizing a Battle of the Bands at the market on Saturday June 19th beginning at 11 AM. Attendees will be able to purchase a ballot -- all donations will go to AFYA, a Westchester based organization that is helping the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
If you have a band and would like to compete please e mail (Moriah Trenk) or you can e mail me at
Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the Battle of the Bands. The Town Board will honor all participants with certificates. We are also looking to borrow a sound system for a few hours for the bands. If you can help out that would be aprpeciated.

book pages placed along Hartsbrook Nature Trail
Event starts at 10:30 AM, Ridge Rooad, Hartsdale (Hartsbrook Nature Trail)

The book, Giving Thanks, by Jonathan London, is a children's book that tells us to be thankful for nature. It teaches us to appreciate all animals, and all living things, in our environment. Even though we all have busy lives, Giving Thanks reminds us to take time out to be grateful for all the beauty around us.

Mariah Zwicker is a Senior at Ardsley High School. She is interning with Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner. In the fall, she will be attending the George Washington University to pursue political communications. Mariah is organizing STORY WALK, 2010.

Allison Cohen & Josh RIngel are other student interns working in my office this summer. They are trying to help students who are looking for summer job opportunities this summer. They reported some good news to me: there are a number of stores/businesses in the area that are still hiring students. I have been posting the job opportunities (as I learn of them) on (greenburgh jobs group). Will continue to post more job openings.
I'd be happy to e mail you the list and continue to provide you with updates - if you e mail me.

We have a great summer internship program (sorry, all volunteers) at Town Hall. Interested? Please e mail me.

HOW MUCH ROAD RESURFACING DO YOU GET FOR $1,000,000? Last week I submitted to the Town Board a proposed capital budget --which included $1,000,000 for road resurfacing. Received this interesting info from the Commissioner of Public Works, Victor Carosi

At a recent work session, I was asked to approximate the costs of paving a roadway per mile. Including various costs items that are incorporated into a paving project, such as milling old asphalt, and averaging a roadway width to 28 feet, a very rough estimate for general budgeting purposes is $275,000 per mile. The current draft capital budget proposes $1,000,000 for roadway resurfacing. At the estimated $/mile, 1 Million dollars buys 3.6 miles of paving. Note the Town has approximately 130.8 miles of roadway.


Last Friday I posted info about a job fair for students that was held yesterday in White Plains. The fair was sponsored by the city of White Plains. I learned of the job fair for students from When I read the news release I was under the impression that the event was open to everyone. I was wrong. Students had to pre-register for the event. I apologize to those who were inconvenienced. A student intern in my office is trying to locate summer job openings that may still be available.


If you have small children, you should take them to Hartsbrook Nature Trail (off of Ridge Road) Saturday morning at 10:30. STORY WALK is an exciting way to encourage kids to love reading and open space. Book pages are placed on stilts along the nature trail.
