LEWISBORO, N.Y. – In the wake of his retirement from county service, longtime Lewisboro resident Joseph Simoncini has been honored by the Town Board for his service and contributions to the town.
Simoncini recently announced his retirement as head of fleet and automotive services for Westchester County – a post he’s held since 1995. He had been employed by the county since 1974.
During his tenure as head of fleet and automotive services, the Town Board said Simoncini helped Lewisboro secure a county van for its Parks and Recreation Department. He also provided expert consultation and technical advice on automotive equipment management and assisted in developing specs for vehicle acquisitions, which board members said helped the town save money.
“This town depends on the generosity of its volunteers – people like you,” said Supervisor Peter Parsons at last week’s Town Board meeting as the board presented Simoncini with a framed resolution thanking him for his contributions.
Deputy Supervisor Peter DeLucia also had praise for Simoncini.
“You exemplify what it means to be a public servant,” DeLucia told Simoncini. “You’ve always been there for us and you’ve done a fantastic job.”
Simoncini has also been a volunteer for the Goldens Bridge Fire Department since 1998. He served as a department engineer from 1998 to 2006. He was elected as a commissioner to the Goldens Bridge Fire District in 2005 and still serves in that capacity.
As a commissioner, he has focused on procurement policies and driver training and helped create a leadership-development training program for department personnel.
Simoncini thanked the Town Board for its acknowledgement.
“This was very nice,” he said, holding the framed resolution. “Thank you all very much.”
