REMINDER!!

Article 1219 of New York State VTL prohibits plowing, shoveling or blowing snow into a street or highway. This law also covers other items likely to pose a hazard to motorists, including glass, nails, wire, cans, etc. Fines for a first offense include up to a $150 fine and/or 15 days in jail, plus applicable surcharges.

This law also stipulates that anyone that places or permits to be placed upon any highway any material which interferes with the safe use of the highway shall immediately remove the same or cause it to be removed. This includes snow! If you are a homeowner and you hire a person to plow your driveway, and you permit him/her to plow the snow into the road, you could be cited under this law.

Article 1220 is similar to 1219 and prohibits throwing, dumping or depositing any refuse, trash or litter on any street, road or highway, or even along the right of way or on adjacent private lands. There are exceptions in Article 1220 for ashes, sand or salt used in a reasonable manner to provide for winter traction on slippery roads. Farm implements, vehicles or machinery are also exempt from the reasonable or unavoidable deposit of nauseous or offensive matter. This means farm roads may have mud or even manure from the normal operation of adjacent farm properties.

 

 

THE VILLAGE OFFICE IS NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER.

YOUR WATER/SEWER PAYMENTS CAN ALSO BE PUT THROUGH THE DROP BOX OR SEND THEM THROUGH THE MAIL.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE A RECEIPT PLEASE INDICATE AND WE WILL GLADLY SEND YOU A PAID RECEIPT.

PLEASE STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!

Property owners in the Village of Mexico are reminded that they are responsible for clearing away snow and ice in front of their business or residence.  The Village Department of Public Works would appreciate help keeping sidewalks free of snow and ice.  It would also be appreciated if all fire hydrants are kept shoveled and accessible.

Curbside Brush Pick Up Policy

  • Brush pick up is scheduled for the 3rd Wednesday of the month from April – November. Weather conditions and other situations may alter the actual pick up day
  • Brush CANNOT be piled curbside during the months of December, January, February and March, as such piles could impede or alter snow removal operations
  • Brush CANNOT be piled curbside more than (7) seven days prior to the scheduled pick up
  • Brush must be cut into 4’ lengths and piled neatly within 5’ of the edge of the street. Piles shall not exceed 4’ in height
  • Brush shall not be piled around poles, signs, hydrants, fences or as to interfere with the sidewalk as it makes it difficult for our equipment to effectively pick it up and WILL NOT BE PICKED UP
  • Brush is defined as small limbs not to exceed 3” in diameter, branches, pruning’s, etc. Material that exceeds these dimensions WILL NOT BE PICKED UP
  • Any trees or material in excess of 3” in diameter that are removed by the homeowner or professionally from the property are the responsibility of the homeowner. Brush from these trees is also considered the responsibility of the homeowner
  • Any trees that are trimmed, cut down and/or removed by a contractor WILL NOT BE PICKED UP and are considered the homeowners responsibility
  • Yard waste, dirt, rocks, stumps, material resulting from stump grinding, construction debris, etc. are not considered brush and WILL NOT BE PICKED UP

Curbside Leaf Removal Policy

October 10th – December 10th

  • Leaves will be removed from the curbside of the street edge of properties from October 10 through December 10, weather permitting.
  • Only leaves are to be placed for pick up. Piles containing sticks, stones, branches or anything other than leaves, WILL NOT BE PICKED UP. These objects damage the leaf vacuum equipment.
  • Leaves should be as close to the street as possible, but no further than 4’ from the edge of the street. Keep leaf piles at least 4’ from either side of poles, signs, mail boxes, fire hydrants, etc., as the hose cannot reach around these items.
  • If an early snow fall should occur prior to December 10th not allowing residents to finish getting their leaves picked-up, the village will pick up leaves again the following April. This will take place during the FIRST FULL WEEK OF APRIL ONLY weather permitting.
