Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The arrival of the spring and summer seasons will bring a great deal of activity to our community. The town has an ambitious paving schedule for the upcoming months which will include all of the following streets:
Clifton Street First Avenue Second Avenue Hill Street
Grace Street Grand Alley Grove Street Shear Court
Charles Street River Street Barley Court Orchard Lane
Timber Drive Appaloosa Court Suncrest Drive Devitt Road
Harvest Way Wood Lot Court Morgan Lane Industry Drive
Specific dates for each street will be posted on the town website as they become finalized. We would appreciate the cooperation of all residents affected by the paving projects so that the projects can be completed as efficiently as possible and with a minimum amount of inconvenience to everyone involved.
Our trash drop off program is now open and available to all town residents at the Town Highway garage every Saturday through May 18th. I am also very pleased to announce that the fees for trash drop off services have been substantially reduced. Effective immediately the new fee schedule is:
Automobiles -- $5 Pick Up Trucks & Vans -- $15 Vehicles with Trailers -- $25
We are also cautiously optimistic that we will soon begin construction on our Mohawk Gateway Streetscape Project. This project is focused on Saratoga Avenue between Clifton and Fulton Streets. Upon completion, the project will result in improved drainage of Saratoga Avenue, new crosswalks for improved pedestrian safety, along with the installation of new street lighting, new plantings and pedestrian benches. The drainage improvements will be undertaken by the New York State Department of Transportation and completed first. The additional enhancements will be undertaken upon completion of the drainage improvements.
On behalf of the Town Board and all employees of the town, please have a safe and very enjoyable spring season.
Our Hearts and prayers are with our Troops all over the world!
