The Town Information Specialist is responsible for writing press releases and coordinating with members of the media and town officials, developing web content, exhibit designs, booklets, pamphlets, flyers and articles for public distribution, designing and publishing town initiatives and departmental announcements, and collecting, assembling and compiling information on internal and external activities.
This office will additionally head special projects designated by the Town Supervisor and Town Board as well as work with Department Heads to ensure the successful implementation of internal, external and community projects.
Recently there has been a lot of reporting in the mainstream media and discussion on social media about the inherent dangers involved in passing stop school buses. As part of our continuing “Check Your Speed” initiative in Clifton Park to raise awareness about traffic safety we felt now was a good time to remind drivers about the rules involved when a school bus stops with flashing red lights. The following is taken directly from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Driver’s Manual.
Over the years the Town of Clifton Park has been extremely successful in seeking out and winning grant awards. By leveraging these grant awards, the Town has been able to make numerous additions to our open space and trail systems while also improving our infrastructure.
Currently the Town is managing 18 grant projects totaling $10.2 million. One of these projects is the Sitterly Road Improvement Project being implemented in partnership with the Town of Halfmoon. After the completion of the project, drivers on Sitterly Road will benefit from two interconnected traffic signals at Sitterly and Crossing Boulevard, and Sitterly and Woodin Road. In addition, new turn lanes onto Crossing Boulevard and Woodin Road will alleviate traffic backups during busy times.
