Congratulations, Donna and Larry O’Connor!

Donna and Lawrence O’Connor were recognized for their restoration of 1696 Main Street in the Village of Delanson. The “Jenkins House” was built in 1876 for the stationmaster of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad. This grand Victorian home has survived fire, and in 1964, the widening of Delanson’s main thoroughfare, which drastically changed the village forever.



It it prohibited at all times to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, or yard debris in Delanson. Burning household trash releases dangerous compounds including arsenic, carbon monoxide, benzene, styrene, formaldehyde, lead, hydrogen cyanide and dioxin, among others.  Burn barrels or free standing fires are also completely prohibited in the Village.

You can report polluters by calling the DEC hotline at 1-844-DEC-ECOs (1-844-332-3267) or Fire Chief, Kevin Morrison at 518-657-9273.

If you are going to have a camp fire, please:

  • Check the fire danger map first to make sure it’s safe to have a fire where you are.
  • Avoid burning on windy days.
  • Keep flammable objects and debris at least 3 feet away from the fire.
  • Never burn trash, including paper products, plastic, glass, and metal (like tin and aluminum cans).
  • Burn only local firewood.
    • Burn only dry, plain wood – no pressure-treated lumber or plywood, and no painted or stained wood.
    • Untreated wood, split tree logs, and branches are recommended for camp fires.
    • Using heat-treated/kiln-dried wood can prevent the spread of invasive species.
  • Never use fire accelerants such as kerosene, gasoline, or lighter fluid.
  • Stay out of the smoke. The fire and its warmth can be pleasant for everyone, but inhaling smoke is unhealthy for you and for your pets.
  • Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby. Never leave your fire unattended.
  • When you’re finished with your fire, fully extinguish it. Stirring water or dirt into the remains of the fire can help.
