The Animal Control law, Local Law #1 – 2012, Section 6, states:

If you see a dog running at large, you can contact the Animal Control Officer, Darla Gulotta, at 518-860-3179.  All emails to Darla go through the Village Clerk before Darla receives them.

It it prohibited at all times to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, or yard debris in Delanson.

Please Slow Down

A recent radar study conducted by NYS DOT revealed that 59% of traffic
on Route 395/Main Street within the Village is exceeding the speed limit. But if you live here, it seems more like 95% of the traffic exceeds the speed limit.  Please slow down to protect our children and pets.


Schenectady County COVID-19 Emergency Response Coalition

People under quarantine or isolation, seniors, or others at high-risk who are unable to provide for their basic needs may call the HOTLINE to request an emergency ration of groceries and other basic supplies.
Because supplies are limited, the Coalition asks that residents only use this number in emergency situations. Click here for CoVid-19 Resources

There is no cost for this service.
