The Hartsdale Fire Department is proud to announce their annual Operation Candy Cane, which will take place on Saturday December 22nd, 2018, from 9:00am – 1:00pm. The Hartsdale Professional Firefighters will spread Holiday Cheer by escorting Santa Claus and his helpful friends around the Hartsdale Fire District in a Fire Engine Sleigh handing out Candy Canes to all attending children & adults. Printed below is a full list of all Stops & Times and to make sure everyone is at the right location awaiting Santa’s arrival, the location marker signs shown below will be posted at every stop. Due to the busyness of Santa’s schedule, please allow for some flexibility with our estimated arrival times. Also, due to safety concerns, we ask that all children are accompanied by an adult and arrive at the designated locations approximately 10 minutes prior to posted times to avoid children running around and near the fire trucks. In the event of inclement weather, this event will take place on Sunday December 23rd, 2018.

Snow Angels

Would you like a Free Snow Blower?

The Poets Corner Civic Association has decided to donate money towards a snow blower to be used to help clear the snow for the elderly and infirm.   If you are willing to commit to clearing the driveways and sidewalks for three of your neighbors, and becoming an official Greenburgh “Snow Angel” in the Poets Corner Community, a brand new snow blower will be at your disposal this winter.  Funding for gas will also be provided.

If this seems like too much for one person to handle, why not team up with a neighbor?  You can share the snow blower and then team up to do the snow angel work as well.  If you have high school aged children, better yet!   ” Team work makes the dream work!”

Supervisor Feiner will provide us with the list of neighbors that require snow removal.

Anyone interested in assisting with the program please contact Mona Fraitag at 914-946-1906

Food Scrap Recycling Committee, General Interest Meeting

The Town of Greenburgh will launch a food scrap recycling program later this fall. We are excited to join nearby communities in reclaiming the value of wasted food and creating nutrient-rich, carbon sequestering compost. The food scrap drop-off program is welcoming resident involvement in the form of a committee. We hope to see you at the first food scrap recycling committee meeting on Tuesday, October 24th, 7:00pm-8:30pm, Anthony Veteran Park, see details and RSVP here.

Food Scrap Recycling Program Background:

Consumers and the general public are increasingly conscious about how their food is grown and where it ends up. Approximately 40% of all food produced in the United States ends up in the waste bin or thrown away.

In partnership with the Town of Greenburgh, the Greenburgh Nature Center will establish a municipal food scrap recycling program this year. It will reclaim the value of food waste through composting while reducing the economic and environmental costs associated with treating food scraps as garbage.

The drop-off site will accept all food including; meat, dairy, bones, oil, fish, fruits, vegetables, bread, rice, pasta, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea leaves, and food soiled paper.

Here’s how it will work: residents of Greenburgh will empty their individual organics bin into the town’s commercial toters at Anthony F. Veteran Park. From there, the food scraps will be carted to a commercial compost facility where they will be processed into nutrient rich, carbon sequestering soil. That compost will help grow plants in gardens, parks, and farms.

Hydrant Flushing

HYDRANT FLUSHING

The Greenburgh Water Department will continue its maintenance program to operate and flush fire hydrants for the week beginning Monday, October 16, 2017 thru Friday, October 27, 2017. This action is necessary to make sure the fire hydrants are in good working order in case of emergencies and to help flush sediment out of the distribution system.

 

The hydrant flushing and operating action will take place during the day from 9:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. Greenburgh Water District Customers in the neighborhoods listed and the immediate vicinity should expect temporary periods of discolored water and lowered pressure resulting from this maintenance operation. This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water. For further information, customers may contact the Greenburgh Water Department at 914-989-1900 or visit the Town website www.greenburghny.com.

Please be advised that flushing may cause water pressure variations and discoloration of water. This does not represent a health hazard. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes (or any other processing) as staining may occur. If you experience discoloration in your water after crews have been flushing in your neighborhood, clear the pipes in your home by running cold water faucets for a few minutes. The water is safe. However, to avoid any inconvenience, we suggest you monitor the water before doing any laundry and keep water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking.
