聞 A tentative 2013 - 2014 Village budget was presented at public hearing on April 1st. Total proposed spending for all Village operations is $6.3 million. Amount proposed to be raised by real property tax levy is $2.5 million (increase of 5%). Final budget will be adopted by the end of April. In the meantime we will continue to look for opportunities to reduce spending.
聞 The Village & Town Comprehensive Plan has been completed and formally adopted. It can be viewed on our website (vil.albion.ny.us) or at Village Office. Thanks to all who participated in this endeavor.
聞 Village will hold a public hearing at 7PM on April 24th at Village Hall to offer interested persons an opportunity to review plans for proposed replacement of the Clarendon Street railroad bridge. An informational open house will precede the hearing from 6PM to 7PM. Engineers will be on hand to answer questions.
聞 Department of Public Works will conduct tree & brush collection Monday April 15th thru April 26, 2013. Brush and leaves must be at the curb. DO NOT BAG LEAVES. After this pick-up, any yard debris that is bundled in 4 foot lengths or less will be picked up with your weekly trash.
聞 We have been advised by New York State Department of Transportation that funding is not currently available for long term repairs required in order to enable reopening of the Brown Street canal bridge. Funding has been applied for but will not likely be available until 2016. In the meantime NYSDOT may consider short term/temporary repairs.
聞 Our next newsletter will be issued in July. See you at Strawberry Festival June 7th and 8th!
