Sidewalk Clearing Thank You

Thank you to all who kept their sidewalks clear this past winter and to those who didn’t pile their snow in the sidewalks. It makes for much easier clearing.

Flower Donations

In the past we have sent out letters to our merchants requesting donations toward our flowers and/or that they help out by beautifying their own property. Anyone wishing to make a monetary donation may send it to the Village of Cherry Valley, PO Box 392, Cherry Valley, NY 13320. All donations, clean up, and greenery/flowers by our residents will be greatly appreciated.

Refrigerator Pickup

Refrigerators still containing Freon gas can be taken to MOSA’s two facilities in Otsego County – Oneonta and Cooperstown at a cost of $15 each. Also scrap metal may be taken at no charge and tires at $1.75, tires with rims at $2.50 each. These and other items will still be picked up (different charges) by the garbage collector, though refrigerators and cooling units must have the Freon removed and tagged.

Museum Needs Volunteers

Are you looking for a 3 ½ hour, 2 or 3 times a month, volunteer job to help your community? The Cherry Valley Museum needs your help. Volunteers to sit at the museum between 10 – 5 daily are needed June – October. History knowledge is helpful, But NOT needed. (There are people who may be called if history help is needed.) However, you do need to be reliable, friendly, and enjoy meeting/greeting people. If you are willing to help out, please call Barb at 264-3098.

Thank you from the Cherry Valley Historical Association.

Brush Pickup

Pickup of lawn and garden debris will continue throughout the spring, summer, and fall by the DPW department. Please try to have piles that can be picked up easily. The use of wheel barrels, pails, and bags are other acceptable ways of disposal. Only in the fall do the leaves get picked up by the vacuum, and do not need to be contained.

Dog Control

Please respect others and their property and remember to have your dog(s) in your control at all times. This text is from the local dog control law:

No running at large.

No habitual barking, howling, crying, or whining.

No damaging other people’s property.

No attacking other animals.

No tampering with garbage.

No chasing, jumping on, biting, or harassing any person.

No chasing or running alongside vehicles of any kind.

No defecating, urinating on or digging anyone’s property.

No dog in heat is to be unrestrained off the owner’s property.

If you have a problem with a dog, please call the Town of Cherry Valley Dog Control Officer. (You may be required to sign a complaint form.)

Jaird W. Johnson @ (607) 264-3223
