Open burning is prohibited in the Village from March 16th to May 31st.

It is prohibited, at any time to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, or yard debris.

Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires in New York. Dry conditions and the close proximity of homes in the Village makes open burning extremely dangerous.  Smoke from open fires can be overbearing and unhealthy for neighbors.  Please be smart and considerate of your neighbors and the law.

To report an illegal open fire, you can call the DEC hotline at 1-844-332-3267 or the local fire department.

There is evidence of an increase in the unauthorized use of small, inexpensive Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) by individuals, organizations, and companies throughout the country.drone-1142182_1280

As a result, in order to protect people, property and privacy rights on the ground, and to prevent collisions between aircraft or other objects, regulations and minimum standards have been enacted by the State and Federal Governments.  FAA compliance does not mean that a drone operator is not committing a trespass or invading someone’s privacy.

Below is a list of informational resources relevant to flying Unmanned Aircraft in your local area
