PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- There are a lot of ways to stay informed about how the village in functioning and many of them are right at your fingertips.
The Village of Port Chester's website provides a wealth of information. Here you can watch live streams of village board meetings through Village Video , view a calendar of upcoming events and meetings and find electronic documents of agendas, minutes, permits, forms and more.
The Village Board of Trustees meets the first and third Monday of every month at Village Hall year-round. Meeting agendas are made available online and posted in print inside Village Hall the Friday before a meeting.
There are six elected officials on the board who meet with Mayor Dennis Pilla . All contact information for elected officials is available on the website.
Questions about agendas before meetings can be directed to the Village Clerk's office , and there are public forums held at each meeting to address specific agenda items or for members of the public to express any other concerns they may have.
Stamford resident Crystal Lord works as a bartender in Port Chester and is mainly concerned about parking, but has not considered attending a village board meeting.
"The parking situation here is terrible," said Lord. She said she primarily uses the four-hour limit public parking lots while she is at work and tries to move her car when she gets a chance, but there often is not another space available.
"I don't know what I want [the mayor and village trustees] to do about it," she said. "I just want to stop getting parking tickets."
Do you share her concerns about parking? What other issues would you like village board to address?
