K9 Friday
This week we are combining #tbt and #k9friday into one! On the left is Ralph Crookston, a former Undersheriff and the man on the right is George Odell. Ralph owned those dogs personally, but generously offered them to assist the Sheriff’s Office. George did not work for the Sheriff’s Office, he was a Game Manager, kind of like today’s NYS Econ Police. George and Ralph worked and trained the bloodhounds together. The photo was around 1960. #pcso #americanbloodhounds #putnamstrong

From the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department and Traffic Safety Board
Milling and Resurfacing Project from Route 6 to Route 52 and Route 6 to Route 312
The long awaited road work and paving for the roads mentioned above is about to begin and you might have already seen the Variable Message Boards flashing

Roadwork Ahead 9 am - 4 pm

Preliminary work has begun in the catch basins with the expected milling and filling work to begin approximately June 11th. This project is expected to take between 3-5 weeks, working during the day and some nights, and is dependent on weather conditions and construction unknowns. As we have been told by the NYS DOT Project Engineer, be prepared for some traffic inconveniences, loud noises, dust/dirt and general frustrations. However, please remember, as with most construction renovations, the outcome will be well worth it. The safety of our residents, our local businesses, school schedules and emergency services have all been discussed as to keeping the impact of the project at a minimal.

For up-to-date information, please look at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department website and Facebook page, the Putnam County Traffic Safety Board’s website and Facebook page, the Town of Carmel website and your local newspapers.
