Here’s a look at what was discussed at Dec. 5’s Board of Trustees meeting:
• The village recycling program is expected to expand come January or February to include all plastics and shredded paper. More information will be sent out to residents at the beginning of the year.
• The remote commuter renewal program will have its last two days at Village Hall, on Dec. 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Dec. 19 from 4:30 to 7p.m. Come with your registration and a check for the renewal fee.
• A local law was enacted that requires any mattress, when placed for collection by the village or any other public agency or contractor compensated by the village, to be put in a plastic bag for collection. This also applies to homeowners.
• Burglaries are still happening in the village and in neighboring communities. However, they’re not as prevalent as they were a few weeks ago. Village officials say that the burglars often enter through a rear window by cutting the screen and encourage residents to lock their doors and windows, and always make it look like someone is home. The Third Precinct has a few suspects and a “good handle on the situation.”
• B.I.D. dollars are being accepted through the end of the year.
• There were 18 parking violations and 25 auto accidents this past month.
• Funds from the Public Benefit Fee, which are paid by businesses on Post Ave. that have less than the required amount of parking, will now be going into the capital fund instead of the general fund.
