MALTA — Malta Town Clerk Roseanne Clavin announced that a public workshop will be held to discuss a conceptual water study regarding service to the Maltaville area.
The public workshop will be held at the Malta Community Center, One Bayberry Drive, at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, August 14.
Town officials will discuss the water study as presented by engineers, with public questions entertained at the end of the meeting.
Additionally, in March, the Malta Town Board proclaimed the town as an official Purple Heart municipality. Monday, August 7, has been set as Purple Heart Day, according to Clavin. There will be a ceremony at 2 p.m. on the grounds of the Veterans Memorial at 2540 Route 9, where town officials plan to publicly show admiration and gratitude for the women and men who have selflessly served our country and this community.
The events start with an unveiling of signs to publicly declare Malta as a Purple Heart Town. Immediately following is a wreath-laying ceremony to acknowledge Purple Heart Day and the sacrifices that Purple Heart recipients have made in defending our freedoms and protecting our country.
Malta Supervisor Vincent DeLucia said he is “extraordinarily proud and honored that the town of Malta, the town board and all of its citizens hold those who served our nation to the utmost rever- ence. Not only is Malta home to a number of Purple Heart recipients, but also many active as well as retired veterans to whom we so respectfully honor and extend our gratitude for their services.”
