FISHKILL – Town Councilman Timothy Tuttle has proposed naming the town’s recreation/senior center after two Vietnam veterans from Fishkill who died in combat.
He suggested the facility be named for Robert Bruce and Michael Garlo.
Town Supervisor Robert LaColla said possible naming the center for veterans will be explored.
“There is a big place in everybody’s hearts for our veterans here in the Town of Fishkill,” LaColla said. “There is a war memorial right on the Town Hall campus, so everybody believes in expressing their honor. It was floated out as an idea. It is early in the discussion. It may be naming for a specific war group or an individual.”
At the same time, Fishkill resident and veteran Anthony Costa is urging the town board to update the town’s veterans’ exemption.
