AUTUMN NEWSLETTER CORRECTIONS

Someone very kindly pointed out a few errors on the newsletter with the latest water/sewer bill mailing.  Allow me to correct them for you.

“Leaf Pick-Up” – Landing clearing and tree removal cannot be brought to the DPW garage.  I put “brush” and this is an error.  Brush CAN be brought to the DPW garage.

“Trash Pick-Up” – Last sentence should be “we are NOT responsible to have them removed.

CodeRed Alerts

CodeRED Alerts:  We are finding, with the need to notify residents of emergency situations in the Village, that not all people have access to a computer for Facebook or the website.  Because of this, we are planning to use the Columbia County 911 as a means to notify people through home telephone or cell phone alerts.  This would require people to either go online at www.columbiacounty911.com/codered.html  to sign-up for alerts or to sign up at the annual Columbia County Fair at the Columbia County 911 Booth.  If you are unable to access a computer or get to the Fair, forms will be available at the Village Clerk’s window and we can process the forms online for you.  Please contact Debra Meyers, Village Clerk, with questions at moc.m1506409965ahtah1506409965cfoeg1506409965alliv1506409965@srey1506409965emd1506409965.

Proposed Zoning Changes for the Village of Chatham

Some area residents and Planning and Zoning Board Members have, over the past year, created and submitted proposed zoning changes for the Village of Chatham.  We have attached seven (7) recommended revisions for your review.  We do not have an existing colored zoning map for a comparison, however, you can look under “Community” on our website and see an interactive map that will do a lay-over of the zones as they exist now.  We will be planning a Public Hearing in the next few months for Village of Chatham residents to express any concerns, questions, or issues.

Outdoor Water Meters

We have learned something new about the outdoor water meters.  If you reach 999.9 gallons, the meter will reset itself.  Please either send a picture of the meter reading or bring it to me to reset.  We are in a learning process and attempting to work out the kinks.  Sorry for the inconvenience of this new system.  You can always feel free to contact the office about this new turn of events.

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.
