Discount at Warrensburg landfill
The Warrensburg town board voted last week to hold its annual sale of landfill punch cards from Feb. 3 through Feb. 7. Through this sale, town residents in effect receive 25 percent off trash disposal for paying in advance. This sale allows residents to buy one punch card and get one at half price — with no expiration date.
At the January town board meeting, the town highway crew was praised for its efficient snow removal.
Town leaders reminded residents of the hamlet to shovel their sidewalks and dig out any fire hydrants on their properties. Snow from any shoveling and plowing should not be deposited on roadways. Also, there is no parking on roadways during winter from midnight to 6 a.m.to allow highway workers to plow the roads properly.
Also, if anyone notices a street light that is not illuminating, report the pole number and location to the town hall so it can be reported to National Grid for repair.
