VILLAGE MAYOR -



     March 2020

Dear Residents:

           I would like to thank and congratulate the Well That Never Runs Dry on Main Street for becoming a very active Community Center for the Village and Town.  They hold many events and celebrations that benefit the young and old in our communities.
      Georgianne Bowman has been included in Marquis Who’s Who.  Individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value.  Ms. Bowman has been Town Historian since 2001 and Village Historian since 2003.  Congratulations to her dedication to preserving the history of our community.
  Dicci Montaldi, a long-time member of the Zoning Board of Appeals has resigned due to health reasons.  Dicci has been a dedicated member of this board and active in a number of organizations in the Village.  Please join me in thanking her for her years of community service.
  Joseph Wales has been appointed to replace Dicci Montaldi on the Zoning Board of Appeals.  Mr. Wales works with Meals on Wheels and he and his wife help out at the Eden/North Collins Food Pantry.  Welcome Aboard!
  I want to thank all those residents who did such a beautiful job decorating their homes and property for the Christmas season. It made the village look very festive.
Two new businesses are coming to the Village.  A liquor store and a coffee shop will be going into the building on Main Street between Shelly’s and the Fire Hall. It is very exciting to see growth in our little community.
        Crosby officials are coming out on February 20th to look over the community about the gas station situation and then will meet with me to discuss their findings. 
     BestSelf Behavioral Health (located in the old Agway Store) has completely redone the interior and exterior of the buildings along with landscaping around the building.  They now, along with adults, will be working with children.  This clinic serves over 450 clients and employs 20 people.  If you or a loved one is in need of mental health and or substance use disorder services, this clinic is available to help you or someone you know.
     Recycling information:  Pizza boxes MUST be grease free.  Greasy box bottoms should be put in the trash and top of box can be recycled. All containers should be rinsed.  If one container is found with anything in it, the dumping station could reject the whole load.
     Don Schasel of Eden died Friday, January 3, 2020.  Don was past president of the Eden/North Collins Food Pantry.  Don worked long and hard in getting the food pantry building built here in the Village.  He was on this project from the very start to the very end.  Don will be missed here in North Collins.
      The walls in much of the Municipal building have been painted and the Veteran’s Wall of Fame has been moved to the main hallway.  There is room for more pictures of our local heroes.  Please stop in to see the display and bring in 5 x 7 pictures of your North Collins family members who have served along with the rank, branch, and years served.
       This summer, the Village will be hosting Movies in the Park!  Watch our website or call the Clerk’s office for more information. 
       March 25th at 7:00pm, please join us for a community meeting about a New York Main Street Grant that will hopefully bring funding to update and improve several buildings on Main Street in the Village.  Business owners will be there as well and we need as much encouragement as we can get!
      As Spring approaches, please review the Brush, Grass, and Weeds local law that was updated last year.  It is available on our website: www.VillageofNorthCollins.org. Click on the Code Book.
     One last very important item is the 2020 Census.  Please take the time to fill out your census information.  The data compiled helps bring more federal and state support to our community.  More residents in a community means more money given to help us improve roads and other infrastructure in our community.                                                                  

 Sincerely,
Mayor Vincent George
