OPEN BURNING IN DELANSON
It is prohibited at all times to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, or yard debris. Burn barrels or free standing fires are also prohibited in the Village.
- The emissions of an open fire may not interfere with the reasonable enjoyment or quality of life or property or create a smoke or odor nuisance to a neighboring property.
- Open fires must be a safe distance from any structure, building, property line or trees, brush or shrubs.
- Open fires may be fueled only by paper, paper products (such as cardboard), unadulterated wood, lumber and charcoal.
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 or a nuisance fire, you can call the DEC hotline at 1-844-332-3267 or the local fire department. The fire department has the authority to extinguish or order extinguished any open fire being conducted in violation of any provision of the our local Open Burn Law.
We have had complaints of coyotes, fox, fishers and even bears in the Village.
If the critters are aggressive or acting strangely you should call local law enforcement or Environmental Conservation Office on the emergency line at 1-877-457-5680. The Environmental Conservation officer for our area is Stacy Presser and you can reach her at 518-357-2158.
Pollard Disposal 2017 Holiday Pickup Schedule
As most residents are aware, garbage pickup is delayed by one day as a result of certain holidays. The 2017 Holiday Pickup Schedule has been posted for garbage pickup dates in the Village following observed holidays. Click here or find it in the Notices section.
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.

Email Notification System
The Village of Delanson has initiated this Email Notification system so residents can be notified by email immediately of important information or any emergency situation that has developed in the Village. Examples would be water main breaks, water main repairs, hydrant flushing, sudden changes in Village services such as garbage pickup or snow plowing, flooding, road closings, damaged roads etc.. Emails will not be sent for normal news items, notices or scheduled events. In addition, updates will be emailed to keep residents informed of the ongoing circumstances as new information is received by the Village until the event or emergency is over. There is no cost for this service.
Simply fill in your email address in the box on the lower left sidebar of this page and click the SUBSCRIBE button. You will receive an email asking you to confirm your decision to receive these bulletins. Once we receive your confirmation, you will be added to our mailing list to receive theses notices. OR, you can send an email to email@example.com and ask to be added to the email notification list. That’s it! Please do not send an email to the village clerk as this will not add your name to the notification list.
Your privacy is important to us. Your email address will not be shared, sold or used in any other capacity and you may unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link on any email you receive or by contacting the web guy at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope this new feature will not only help keep our residents well informed but safer during emergency situations.
Complaints of Idling Trains
It is prohibited by Local Law 2-1990 for trains to idle within the Village limits for more than 30 minutes. Complaints of trains idling for prolonged periods of time should be directed to the Norfork Southern Railway. For a thorough investigation of the incident, the following facts must be presented at the time of the complaint.
- Date the train was idling in the Village.
- Time of day the train came into Village and left the Village if you know it. Otherwise, length of time you observed the train idling in Village
- Nearest Crossing Location –
- Main street # 250195D, Cole Road # 250074F
The phone number for idling trains is 1-800-453-2530
FORMAL COMPLAINTS – Superintendents Office – 1-717-541-2100
You can also call this emergency number for trains blocking the road, people climbing on the train, ATV activity on the access road…(and there is lots of that lately!) etc. Calling the State Police will trigger a call to Norfork Southern Emergency as well.. and State Police may be able to respond faster in certain situations.
Keep a list of all the dates and times you have called to complain about the train. This information can then be gathered by Mayor Gifford and sent to Federal & State agencies that may assist us in prohibiting the trains from idling in the Village.
