Just a reminder of the upcoming burn ban this week.
Annual burn ban in effect from March 16 through May 14.
Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires in NYS.
Since the spring burn ban was implemented in 2009,
the number of wildfires has decreased by more than 40%.
Watch a Public Service Announcement on open burning and check out
other clips on DEC’s YouTube Channel (leaves DEC website).
When you plan a fire, always check for fire danger in your area on DEC’s online map
(updated every week). Also, local governments may have stricter rules than NYS;
your fire department will have information about local burning laws.
The Village of Waterville will begin accepting applications for the NYS CDBG grant.
This grant is for low-to-moderate income home owners within the Village.

While attending the OCVFA meeting in Deansboro this evening, the meeting was stopped
and Believe 271 Foundation Inc. was presented with two checks. New York Mills FD presented us with
a $2,000 check from their Indoor Clambake last Sunday. The Waterville FD presented us with a $500 check.
Both departments have been there each and every year supporting our Foundation so we can support our brother and
sisters in need. Our entire Board appreciates these efforts by both departments.
