“Capital projects will continue,” Kennedy said.  “Other things will continue that have already started, but we are going to put in a spending freeze to make sure that we stay on target because we really have a commitment our taxpayers not to raise taxes.”

NEWBURGH – Lower Broadway in the City of Newburgh is slated for a full-fledged supermarket, Mayor Judy Kennedy said.

The facility, to be constructed in a city-owned vacant lot adjacent to the DMV office, would house apartments on the second floor, the mayor said. She could not divulge the name of the supermarket at this time.

“It’s a way in which we can bring in a little vitality to the lower part of Broadway,” Kennedy said.

At present city residents must shop at supermarkets in the neighboring towns of Newburgh and New Windsor.
