Dear Supervisor Annabi:

This letter shall serve as a response to your request for information regarding the status of the County’s Peekskill Hollow Road project. Specifically, the County had entered into an agreement with a particular general contractor to perform the work which was proposed at this particular location of Peekskill Hollow Road. Unfortunately, the County has encountered unforeseen issues with said contractor and is in the process of attempting to resolve said issues with all necessary parties.

In the meantime, however, the County is working with its engineers and outside firms to arrive at a plan for securing the site and for ensuring that the roadway at issue is safe for traversing during the upcoming winter months. Please let me assure you that all necessary measures will be taken to provide for a convenient and safe manner of passage through and across Peekskill Hollow Road before the first snowfall.

I sincerely hope that the above referenced information helps to provide you and your constituents with some reassurance that the County is aware of your concerns and that we are in the process of addressing them. Unfortunately, I am constrained from providing more specific information to you in light of the fact that this matter is currently being handled by our County Attorney’s Office and by outside counsel for the County. Once I am able to provide more detailed information to you, I will certainly do so. Should you have any additional questions or concerns relative to the above, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

MaryEllen Odell
Putnam County Executive
