Village Wide Garage Sale Postponed

The Village Wide Garage Sale is tentatively postponed to August 1, 2020.      

There are currently no restrictions against having a garage sale, however, I would strongly encourage those wishing to host their own sale to follow sanitizing protocol and physical distancing rules. 

Folks have come up with some creative ways to host a sale safely such as creating a virtual sale with contact-less porch pick up.   You may also host a physical sale as long the you are limiting crowds, roping off items to prevent touching, and making sure people spread out.  Essentially, treat your sale like a business.

If you decide to have a sale, please do so responsibly and safely.  If you have a creative suggestion, please share!

Good luck and stay safe.

Mayor Gifford

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.

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’s seems more like 95% of the traffic exceeds the speed limit.  Please slow down to protect our children and pets.
