- DISTRICT: North Salem
- REGION: Westchester
- GOVERNMENT BODY: Supervisor
- YEAR: 2017
Since taking office in 2010, North Salem Supervisor Warren Lucas has worked to protect the environment.
Warren signed North Salem to single-stream refuse pickup in 2014, which resulted in the town holding the highest percentage of recycled materials in Westchester. He also recently passed unified solar permit legislation allowing for solar energy with just a building permit, and passed legislation allowing for PACE financing in North Salem. Lucas also has shown a strong commitment to water quality, forming the East of Hudson Watershed Corporation for dealing with high levels of phosphorus, building a $31 million sewer plant to be able to remove 484 septic tanks which resulted in Peach Lake being in the best shape in 50 years, and receiving a $800,000 grant to install a filter in the Peach Lake Stormwater Basin to remove phosphorus.
If re-elected, Warren Lucas will continue to show the same commitment to environmental issues that have a particularly large effect on North Salem.
