VILLAGE COURT CLERK HOURS

Since the mailing of our Spring Newsletter of 2017, the Village Court Clerk has changed her work days. We stated in the Newsletter that she would be working on Monday and Tuesday.  This has been changed to Tuesday and Thursday 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

March is once again Shred Month in the Village!

Once again, March is Shred Month in the Village of Chatham!

Certified Document Security has supplied us with locked bins for you to bring documents that you no longer want to keep. Old bills, bank statements, tax filings — anything with identifying information that you don’t want to throw in the trash — can be put in the bins to be safely shredded. CDS supplies companies that reuse the shredded paper to make new products.

The bins are available during hours when Tracy Memorial Hall is open: Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00 – 4:00, Thursday from 11:30 – 7:00, and Friday from 9:00 – 3:00. We will also be open on two Saturdays, March 11 and 25, from 9:00 – 12:00 to give you access to the bins. The Tracy is also open on court nights — March 7, 8, 14 and 22 — and evenings when there are meetings on March 9 and 20.

This service is open to the general public, not just Village of Chatham residents.

While you are getting rid of old papers, take the time to clean out your medicine cabinet. The Village of Chatham now has a permanent medication disposal box available whenever the Tracy is open. Bring outdated, expired, or no-longer-needed medications and drop them in the secure box located in the hallway across from the ladies room in the lobby

New Interactive Map Site

We are happy to announce our latest update to the Village of Chatham website.  If you go to “Community”, you will find a link to our new Interactive Map.  This map shows places of interest, municipal buildings, parks, schools, etc.  You can also look to see what “Zone” a particular area rests in by clicking on “Zoning”.  You have several options to choose, from historic to commercial and everything in-between.

Changes in Garbage and Recycling Pick-Up

The Village of Chatham has a new vendor for garbage and recycling pick-up.  County Waste was awarded the contract to be our vendor from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018.

For the most part, you should not see significant changes in service with pick-up day continuing to be on Wednesdays between 7 and 1.

One change will be the use of recycling totes that will be provided by County Waste.  They will drop off totes at all properties on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 5 and 6.  If you do not receive one, please call the Village Clerk’s Office at 392-5821 and we will get one to you.  The use of the totes is not mandatory but is recommended.

Another change is that there will only be one truck that makes the rounds through the Village, picking up both garbage and recycling at the same time.  The truck will have two compartments, so that garbage and recycling are kept separate in the truck.

 

Testing for PFOA in the Village of Chatham

In response to concerns of Village residents about neighboring municipalities finding high levels of PFOA in their water sources, the Board of Trustees for the Village approved having the Chatham water tested.  The results have come back and show that there is less than 0.67 parts per trillion of PFOA in the Village water source.  The EPA standard is that 100 parts per trillion is an acceptable level.  Even applying the more conservative standard of 20 parts per trillion that some states use, the Chatham water supply is well within safe levels.  The level of PFOA in the Village water supply is so low it is considered to be “non-detectable.”

The actual report from the testing lab can be found by clicking here:  PFOA Test Result
