Route 6N County DPW Garage Renovation Completed

12 October 2023

Carmel, NY – The Putnam County Department of Public Works (DPW) completed major renovations to their 6N DPW Garage in Mahopac. Putnam County Executive Kevin Byrne joined DPW Commissioner Tommy Feighery, and Chairman of the Physical Services Committee Legislator Bill Gouldman revealed major renovations completed at the garage.

“The renovations here were not only cosmetic, but drastically improved the functionality and efficiency of this facility,” said County Executive Byrne. “Earlier this year, we made a commitment to make much needed upgrades our county facilities; buildings where our county employees must work every day. There’s something to be said about taking pride in the place in which you work.”

Earlier this year, County Executive Byrne identified the needed repairs to a number of county facilities in his Inaugural State of the County speech and requested the Legislature dedicate $2 million to a Facilities Improvement Fund to support desperately needed capital projects.

“The building had fallen into severe disrepair over the past decade,” said Commissioner Feighery. “A lot of residents thought the building was abandoned, that’s how bad it got. Our crews really took pride in this project and showed off their commitment to their craft. I thank everyone who worked on this project, and to County Executive Byrne for getting us the funding to complete the work.”

Speaking in front of the freshly painted exterior, Byrne noted that upgrades included a renovated break room, new energy efficient windows and doors, new energy efficient HVAC equipment, new energy efficient lighting, bathroom renovations, masonry repairs and repaving of the entire parking lot.  The project was completed earlier than expected, with cost coming in at approximately $100,000. Had the renovations gone through the traditional contracting process, project estimates would have put the cost at about $800,000, and wouldn’t have started until next spring. 

“We’re blessed with an incredibly talented DPW team, and I’m glad to see us taking full advantage of the their talents,” said Legislator Gouldman. “They have breathed new life into this important county facility. While it may be located in Mahopac, it’s an important hub that serves residents all across the county.”

Welcome Message

“Remember that Putnam County is home. Regardless of what may make us different as individuals, it is our respect for each-other as neighbors, our desire to step up and serve, to lend a hand, and leave this beautiful county better off than we found it. That is what makes this place so special. It is with that in mind that we as a county government are here to serve, and will always serve, with a desire to do better.” - Kevin M.
