VILLAGE MAYOR -



Dear Residents:

A
Village election was held in March for the offices of: Mayor, Trustee 4-year, and Trustee 2-year (to fill the remainder of Melvin Bley’s term).  We had a record number of people running for the various offices and we very much appreciate the efforts of everyone involved.  Your new Village Board of Trustees consists of: Mayor Vincent George (reelected), Trustee Corinne Leone (reelected), Trustee Karen Denne, Trustee C. Robert Lantaff (newly elected to a 4-year term), and Richard Bley (newly elected to a 2-year term).

The new Dog Warden is Officer Nick Blasz. His phone number is 716-913-5227. Any problems concerning dogs should be reported directly to Officer Blasz at this number instead of calling the Village Office.

We welcome Officer Steve Ebling to our Village Police Department. Officer Ebling will be filling a vacancy in our department due to Officer Alessi now serving as our full-time NCCSD School Resource Officer.

A UPS Drop Box will be coming to our Village! It will be placed in the parking lot of the Municipal building (at the corner of the building) and will be available to anyone wishing to drop off a pre-packed and labeled UPS package.  For more information, contact the Village Office.

After a 2-year hiatus, the North Collins Eagle Energy Day was a great success. On Friday, May 13th, students from the High School performed various jobs, such as sprucing up our Village Park, picking up trash along the railroad, raking resident’s yards, cleaning up the Schoolhouse # 8 property, washing the firetrucks, and creating beds around the Village welcome signs to name just a few! Many thanks to the teachers and faculty who scheduled the jobs and chaperoned the students. Many thanks to all the students who showed their commitment to the environment and our Village!

Congratulations go out to all the students of the North Collins Central School District who exceeded their goal of $25,000 in the Bald For Bucks fundraiser in support of Roswell Park Cancer Center. The final total was over $32,000!  This is quite an accomplishment considering the size of our student body. Thanks go out to our own Tony George who started who started Bald For Bucks.

On April 30th, 42.5 pounds of unwanted drugs and used needles were dropped off at the Village Police Station. This Drug Drop Off is sponsored by the U.S. Justice Department Drug Enforcement Administration and our Village Police Department. The next Drug Drop Off event will be held this fall.

Please remember that open fires are not allowed in the Village. If you have a problem with  someone burning garbage or having a large fire, please call the Village Office at 716-337-3160. You do not have to give your name.

We have recently received reportS of early morning lawn mowing and other activities that disturb the peace. Village Code 117-2 states that activities with loud volume are prohibited between 11pm and 8am. Please be considerate of neighbors and refrain from such activities between the noted hours.

The new garbage and recycling totes should have been delivered to each residence in the Village. If you haven’t received one or both bins, please contact the Village Office. The same amount of garbage (5 bags/week, 2 bulk items, unlimited recycling) is still in effect. Should you feel that you are producing more than the allowable pickup amount, you may contact Casella and rent another bin from them directly for a yearly fee.

Park and Harrison Avenues are both slated for paving this summer. Other various streets will also receive attention as part of the NYS CHIPS program.

The Village will be hosting a Movie in the Park at the Gazebo each First Friday in June, July, August, and September. Come and join in some family-friendly fun with popcorn, candy, and water provided by the Wesleyan Church and the North Collins Chamber of Commerce. Keep the handy flier included with this newsletter for the titles and dates.
                                                          

 Sincerely,
Mayor Vincent George
