Open Burn Law Reminder by DEC

"The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) isreminding New Yorkers of the open burning law in place starting this week. Withwarming temperatures and dry conditions, residential brush burning in townswith less than 20,000 residents is prohibited from Wednesday, March 16 throughMay 14. With the lack of snow cover over much of the state and unseasonablywarm temperatures forecasted, experts believe conditions for wild fires will beheightened in the coming weeks. Campfires using charcoal or untreated wood areallowed, but people should never leave fires unattended and must completelyextinguish them before leaving the area."

Deer Management Program

At this time, even though permission was potentially granted to begin near the end of December, the Village Deer Committee is still in the process of finalizing the recently approved Deer Management Plan.  There are many details still not complete, and the application process will not be implemented until all such details are thoroughly addressed.

We have not anticipated a start date at this time.  We do not wish to hastily begin this program.

New 211 Service in Onondaga County

Onondaga County has just gone live with 211 service.  The program is described as follows:

Locating basic resources such as food, shelter, employment, or health care may mean calling dozens of phone numbers, then struggling through amaze of agencies and services to make the right connections. The 211 system helps residents find resources by dialing a simple three-digit number.  In July 2000 the Federal Communications Commission assigned the three-digit dialing code 2-1-1 for the exclusive purpose of providing widespread access to community information and referral services.

211 CNY brings together organizations in the community to better serve the residents of five counties: Onondaga, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence. 211 is a helpful starting point for areas with small fragmented rural communities that may not be as connected as bigger cities. Under a simple, easy to remember, three digit phone number, updated information is kept under national standards, and the call or use of the database is free and available 24/7. “

You can dial 211 from your home phone, cell phone or our office phone (Note – you DO NOT need to dial 9 first from the office phone.)
