New Windsor honors teen as outstanding citizen

While the town initiated a program to honor local businesses celebrating anniversary milestones in the past few years, New Windsor started a new tradition Wednesday night by honoring one of its residents with an "outstanding citizen" award.

Mayor Neal Roop recognized Bob Nobles III at Wednesday night's New Windsor Town Council meeting for serving as the 2012 ambassador for Kennedy Krieger's Festival of Trees.

"I'm very honored to be an outstanding citizen in this community and I thank my parents for giving me the discipline to be an outstanding citizen," Nobles said after receiving his award.

Roop said he hopes this new program will be an opportunity to highlight the best of the community, and encouraged residents to submit nominations for future honorees to Town Hall.

Also at Wednesday night's council meeting, Councilman Steve Farkas reminded residents to remove vehicles for town streets as much as possible during snow events. Keeping the roads clear allows the snow to be removed more efficiently, he said, as well as it provides open space for emergency vehicles to pass through.

The New Windsor Town Council work session that would have been scheduled for Jan. 21 has been moved to Jan. 22 to avoid a conflict with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, said Town Manager Frank Schaeffer. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the New Windsor fire hall.
