Spring Clean Up Day 2017

Our Annual Spring Clean Up Day is scheduled for May 6th 8am - 4pm and will be held rain or shine.  The event takes place at the salt shed grounds on Sharptown Road.

Resident punch cards are available at the Town Clerk's Office and at the Highway Department.  The cards are good for 2 trips and please be prepared to show proof of residency (something that has your physical address).  Please note that a truck load with a loaded trailer attached will now be considered 2 trips.

We do not accept hazardous materials but there will be a Hazardous Materials Day on June 17th 8am - Noon at the Greenport Transfer Station.  Additional information and a description of what's considered "hazardous" may be found at Columbia Co. Solid Waste.

We will accept all other forms of "trash" (excluding household garbage).  There is a limit on tires of 4 per household.  Please separate all e-waste (stereos, monitors, computer equipment, televisions, cell phones, fax machines, scanners, VCR's, portable digital music players, DVD players, cable/satellite receivers, electronic or video games consoles).  

Additional questions should be directed to Highway Superintendent Chuck Stiffler at the Highway Dept. @ 758-6843.

AC Transmission Upgrades project in New York

In an effort to correct inaccuracies and provide the most up-to-date information to stakeholders, landowners, and citizens, we here at National Grid want to share the following with you.

You may have recently received or viewed an email from Scenic Hudson, an opponent to the much-needed transmission upgrades. Included was a misleading graphic of what the new transmission system would look like in the Hudson Valley. The graphic misinformed the public, rather than provide a fair assessment of the upgrades. The graphic shows the current lattice transmission structures standing approximately 80-90 feet tall. Scenic Hudson's graphic also shows the proposed monopole transmission structures standing at 120 feet tall.

This is not what National Grid proposed. The proposed monopole structure would stand approximately 85-90 feet tall throughout most of the route in the Hudson Valley. The structures would not be 30 feet taller as shown by Scenic Hudson.

Scenic Hudson should be claiming victory: DPS released the final staff report, stating that an upgraded transmission system should not be expanded outside of the current right of way, that there would be no new Hudson River crossings, and there would likely be fewer structures than currently stand.
