The documents below are the bid forms received in response to the 2016 Invitation for Bids (see our DPW page for bid specifications) for village road work. The bids were opened in public prior to our monthly Board of Trustees meeting on 10 August 2016. Bids were received from Cedar Creek Tree Service and Excavation for Seasonal Snow and Ice Removal and from Darcy Construction for both Seasonal Snow and Ice Removal and Year Round Maintenance. All three bids were deemed to be complete and compliant with the bid specifications. The files below are the "bid forms" (price lists) submitted with the three bids. The board will consider the bids and vote on which vendors (if any) to offer contracts at the regular monthly meeting on 14 September 2016. Feel free to submit any questions or comments on this topic to Mitch Levinn, mayor, at email@example.com or call him at 518.712.9635.
Anyone in the community is welcome to experience some of the same training that Zoning Board of Appeal and Planning Board members take. Board members are required to take four hours of training per year. The NYMIR University has nine one-hour modules available to help meet that training requirement. If you are considering joining one of these village boards, feel free to take one or more of these courses in advance to better understand the role of the board and its members.

The 518 area code for phone numbers is running out of numbers. The NYS Department of Public Service is considering options to expand the available numbers for the region including splitting the current 518 geographic area or adding another area code as an overlay (resulting in 10-digit dialing required for all numbers). They are looking for public input into the issue. Click here for the documents related to this matter, including public comments.
