VILLAGE MAYOR -



Dear Residents :

Correction from last newsletter: The building on the corner of Main and Sherman is owned by Dale Gier not his brother Dave Gier. Sorry about the mistake.

New Village Business: A new business, Eden Valley Auto, owned by Shawn Bishop, has opened at 2107 Spruce Street (corner of Dewey Avenue). The business will be selling used cars online. Mr. Bishop plans on making some improvements to the property. We wish him only the best.

Congratulations to our Police Administrator, Rich Cooper, who has been asked to be the graduation speaker at the Rural Police Training Academy at Genesee in Batavia, New York. This is a real honor for our Police Department.

Congratulations goes out to the North Collins Volunteer Fire Company Softball team, winning their second title in a row in the Firemen’s League.

I would like to thank Eagle Scout Tyler Schiffman who, for his Eagle Scout Project, helped refurbish our Village Park Gazebo. Tyler, along with some volunteers, took down old railings and put up new the railing, painted the floor, power-washed the bricks on the gazebo, and power-washed all the stone walkways. They did a great community service by improving the looks of our village park.

The home on the corner of Main and Vermont has been sold. The new owner is doing a tremendous job fixing up the home and cleaning up the property. The property is no longer a real eyesore on Main Street. Congratulations and thank you goes out to the new owner.

Congratulations goes out to the North Collins Central School Lady Eagles soccer team Section VI Class D Champions.

The Fall 2017 Drug Drop Off was Saturday, October 28 at Village Police Station. Over 78 lbs. of drugs and nearly 45 lbs. of needles were dropped off by the public. This was the largest drop-off in North Collins since this was started by the county.

On Wednesday, November 8th, at the North Collins Town Board Meeting, the Town Council recognized the Village Police Department.
Police Administrator Rich Cooper, along with Officers Reid Smith, Don Badaszewski, Phil Tremblay, Mike LiVecchi, Peter Tremblay, Mike Davis, and Pat Davis attended. The Town recognized them for their work and dedication and especially being present at all the town events.

Our Village Comprehensive Plan is just about completed. I want to thank the committee and all the people who filled out the survey for this plan. This plan will help the future of our village and will guide the direction we want to go.

Our North Collins Emergency Squad is in need of new members—especially drivers. They need our help if we want to continue having our own emergency squad available to us. Please contact Janice Catalano for more information.

Once again I want to thank all the residents and businesses that keep up their property and make improvements to their property. We are constantly getting compliments on how nice the village is looking, especially on Main Street.
