Winter Snow Removal Reminders:
So that roadways can be plowed, all vehicles, by law, must be off the street within 2 hours after a snow storm has started. (If snow is predicted, the police will not grant permission for over-night street parking.)
Homeowners are required to have all sidewalks abutting their property cleared within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall.
Snow is not to be plowed, shoveled or blown into the street. Please inform the person who plows or shovels for you.
If possible, wait to clear snow until after the storm has ended. It is the policy of the DPW to plow curb-to-curb. This clean-up takes a few hours after the snow has stopped.
When clearing your driveway, pile the snow to the right of the direction of traffic flow so that the mound does not get pushed back into the driveway by the Village plow.
Help your neighbors and the Fire Department by clearing the snow from around any fire hydrant near your home.

Things You Can Do to Help the Environment Right Now
Don’t flush baby wipes. Baby wipes, even the ones advertised as “flushable”, are among the most common objects that clog pipes and jam pumps at sewage treatment plants. Use washable cloth wipes instead.
Time to call the Packing Peanut Hotline! Send foam “peanuts” packing.
Call the Packing Peanut Hotline at 800-828-2214 for the drop-off site closest to you that recycles “peanuts.” NYS has nearly three dozen locations.
Turn Out the Lights! Many species of insects, birds, sea turtles, bats, nocturnal rodents, snakes, fish, and even plants are harmed by nighttime lighting. Use lower wattage outdoor lights, motion-sensitive lights and fixtures with shields that direct light downward.
Water wisely. Use a rain gauge. An inch of water each week is sufficient for plants and greenery, whether Mother Nature provides it or you do. Collect rain in a barrel (many barrels can be attached to a sprinkler) to use on gardens and lawns during dry spells. Place sprinklers so they water your grass, not the street.
Keep cool, not cold. Bigger air conditioners aren’t necessarily better. An over-sized AC is less efficient and effective than a unit properly sized for the area to be cooled. Sun, shade and how a space is used are also factors to consider.
Enjoy a climate-friendly cookout. Charcoal grills produce about three times more carbon emissions than propane gas grills. If you need to replace your grill, consider buying a propane grill.
“Shopping” isn’t always a dirty word. Reusing or recycling items is often the greener choice, but sometimes new products are actually better for you and the environment. Search the USEPA’s Design for the Environment database for products that EPA scientists evaluated for safety and high quality.
