Walton Village Clerk’s Corner

By Jody Brown

Be mindful when mowing and raking - do not blow grass and leaves into the street. Local Law 2017-2 passed on March 6 by the Walton Village Board of Trustees states that “no refuse shall be thrown, placed, left, deposited or dumped within the village of Walton including but not limited to the streets, storm drains, culverts, ditches, streams and rivers or in any sanitary landfill area now or hereafter established by the village, except at such place or places designated by the Board of Trustees. This law will be enforced by tickets issued by the Code Enforcement Official.”

Be watchful at the intersection of Delaware Street and Liberty Street for people in the crosswalk. Vehicle and Traffic Law 27-1151: “Pedestrian Crosswalk - pedestrians have the right of way when a foot is in a crosswalk. Vehicles must stop.” The Walton Police Department will be issuing tickets for vehicles that fail to yield to pedestrians within the crosswalk.

The next regular meeting of the board of trustees will be Oct. 2 at 6 p.m. in the board room.

The water/sewer bill will be mailed Oct. 4. If you do not receive your bill, call or stop in. Bills are due when rendered and a 10% penalty will be assessed on Nov. 6 for unpaid bills.

A message from the sewer department: Do not flush wipes of any kind down the toilet, even if they are marked”flushable.” The wipes clog up the sewer lines and the pumps at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

For questions regarding these or other village services, contact the office at 607-865-4358. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The village of Walton website is View board meetings there.
