Congratulations ~ Willard Sutton
32 Years of Service ~ Happy Retirement!
Plattekill Police Officer Willard Sutton has patrolled the streets for the Town of Plattekill for the last 32 years! In recognition of his lifelong dedication, on Wednesday October 5, 2016 the Town Board presented Willard with a much deserved award.
He received a shadow box containing his badge along with both the town police patch and the American Flag patch to commensurate the time Willard has served Plattekill residents.
The entire Town Board wish Willard a happy and healthy retirement! Thank you for your years of selfless service and dedication to the Town Board, Police Department and the residents of our town!

American Flag Drop Box
The Town of Plattekill proudly announces the placement of an American Flag Drop Box in front of the Plattekill Town Hall. The idea came from a resident of the Town suggesting the need of a local drop off designated for ripped or tattered American Flags, to then be disposed of accordingly.
A 1958 mailbox was donated by the Laskowsky Family for just such a use. Once the mailbox was prepped for restoration, two Boy Scouts from our Town completed the process by joining forces on this most worthy community service project.
Patrick Leonard from Troop 70 & Dustin Colombo from Troop 195 worked together to paint the mailbox Red, White & Blue. Decals donated by Don Dubois, owner of Sign Designs were then applied.
American Flags of all sizes can be placed in the American Flag Drop Box to be retired respectfully. Stop by and see our little piece of history!
