You may have seen a new face in the village. Joe Stremel has joined Sergeant Ryan Sincerbox in the police department. Joe has been hired as part-time police officer for the village. Many of you may have already met him at the Music in the park on Thursdays. Joe is a retired police officer from New York City. He and his wife now reside on the east side of Keuka Lake.

The police department would like to generate an In Case Of Emergency Log for village residents. Some people that leave for the winter or for vacation stop in the village office and give information to the clerk or the police department, however not everyone does so Sergeant Sincerbox would like to get this information from residents whether you are planning to leave your home or not. This is also a good safety precaution for our older residents. Forms were included in your water bill.** Please fill one out and send it with your water payment. Everything will be kept confidential.

**When you are getting ready to leave the area for an extended amount of time please let the Village Clerk know your new address. Water bills are not forwarded, therefore to avoid a late fee the Village must have a current address.
Please call the Village Clerk at 569-3700.

Leaf pick-up will be from October 17 through November 18.

Please have garbage and recycling out Tuesday night. Recycling is picked up the second Wednesday of each month. Recycling containers are available in the Village Office. We now have large square containers for $12.00 each. All items must be separated.

Trick - or Treat 2011

The Village of Hammondsport "Trick-or-Treat" will be observed on Monday, October 31, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Please drive with caution - there will be many children on the street and costumes/masks often limit the wearers field of vision.

At 7:30 there is a parade in the village square park with costume judging, as well as cider and donuts, sponsored by the Park Inn.
