Shovel Sidewalks

As mentioned in the Winter Newsletter, we are all responsible to clear our sidewalks 24 hours after the snow stops falling.  If your sidewalk is not cleared and the DPW clears it, you will be charged a fee.  Please, take the time to clear your sidewalks.

Frozen Water Pipe Prevention Suggestions

The temperatures continue to be extremely low causing many residents and businesses to have problems with freezing pipes.  We have a few suggestions and/or recommendations to help prevent your pipes from freezing:

Keep your cabinet doors open or ajar to allow for heat flow.  It is best to have heat in your basement since that is where most water pipes are located.  If you think you are already having a problem with freezing, allow for a constant stream of running water in the faucet at least as thick as a pencil or 1/4″ thick (per DPW).  If you own a vacant house, we recommend turning the heat on to prevent your pipes from freezing or call the DPW to have the water turned off at the curb to prevent freezing of the pipes.

If your pipes do freeze or you think you have a possibility of frozen pipes, you can contact the DPW to come to your house to assist you (even if just recommendations).  The DPW phone number is (518) 392-2525.

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.m1519362340ahtah1519362340cfoeg1519362340alliv1519362340@srey1519362340emd1519362340.
