YONKERS, NY -- October 6, 2013 -- Legacy Valve Company was said by Yonkers City Hall to cover all costs with regard to replacing a water main shut-off valve that was used to fix a valve initially placed backwards the first time about 13 months or so ago at the Wendover Road Water Main. Thanks to some individuals who know who they are who clued us in, we were able to advise of the initial faulty installation. About 2 weeks ago, the ability to make that correction revealed itself and remedy to the first installation was completed. Alas, legacy Valve Company recognized that the shut-off valve was not operating properly and City Chall advised that Legacy Value would stand behind their product and would cover all costs. At issue in the minds ofYonkers Tribune readers is whether that would also cover the overtime costs needed to maintain enough Firefighters to be alert to any potential safety issue that could arise because of a lack of water to fight any fires that could erupt. Think 20 or 30 or 40 firefighters. The jobto remedy the situation was undertaken Friday night, October 4th and was to be completedaround Noontime Saturday, October 5. It turns out the City of Yonkers and Yonkersites in the affected area will have to endure this process for a fouth time. Water will be shut this Monday night, October 7th. The collobarative effort failed. At issue now is the additional $500,000 bill, the reason for the fourth failure, and why Yonkers City Hall continues to be slow in advising Yonkersites. Let's hope the 4th time around is a charm!

BROOKLYN, NY and YONKERS, NY – August 15, 2013 -- Ivy Reeves has won the right to maintain her effort against her challenger who has contrived every effort to diminish her voice in representing the City of Yonkers as a candidate for Yonkers City Council President. Her campaign effort was today unanimously (4-0) upheld in a ruling by the Appelate Division of the New York Supreme Court in Brooklyn. Perhaps akin to the unsinkable Molly Brown, Ms Ivy Reeves has maintained her composure through the court process and reassured her supporters her campaign is viable and strong.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- January 4, 2013 -- The House has approved $9.7 billion in new aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy by a vote of 354 to 67, a face-saving quick move taken three days after House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) earned scathing criticism from New York and New Jersey Republicans for canceling a late-night vote on providing new aid money for those hit by the storm.
Boehner's wariness in bringing a larger $60 billion spending measure to the floor on Tuesday was born out, as all votes against the smaller bill on Friday came from his own members.
