Auto Repair Recommendation?

I've lived in Beacon waaay too long not to have an answer to this, but my own trial and error has turned up all error.

So I reach out to you, my fellow drivers, to recommend a fair and talented car vet.

Any advice, for me and my humble conveyance, would be most appreciated.

Newburgh Beacon Bridge, discuss:

Why is that bridge such an embarrassing mess and dangerous to both workers and drivers.  Have  you driven from Newburgh to Beacon lately?  

First, they set up this lane blocking mess in the winter so it will sit empty for months. OK, say they had to do it at exactly this time of year, answer me this:

a) Why didn't they do some patching of other lanes before adding the barriers?

b) Why didn't they do a better job of creating new lane lines? …

City Council Discussing Meters on Main Street Again

It looks like parking meters on Main are being considered again by the City Council.  They were discussed for some time at the 1/6/14 workshop/meeting.  Instead of "old school" coin machines, the City Council is looking at "smart" meters.  So, when you park on Main, you would walk to a one of the 10 or so meters, pay for some amount of time, and enter your license plate.

I would love to hear more from this community about your opinion on this issue?  What are the pros and…

Snow Plowing on Dennings Avenue

Since I moved to Beacon in 1999, I've always wondered who plows snow on Dennings Avenue (the dirt road that leads from the recycling/sewage facility parking lot to Dennings Point.)  There is only one house near the end of the road, and the "Beacon Institute" building is the only other building.  If Dennings Avenue is not a city of Beacon Road (since it is not paved, it would seem not to be), then who is responsible for plowing it?  I hope someone here can answer this question.  Thanks.
