The Village of Lowville Department of Public Works would like to announce that it will again be conducting Fall Clean-Up beginning September 29, 2014 and running through November 3, 2014. During this period the DPW crews will be picking up tree limbs, brush, leaves, and general yard debris that is placed at curbside.
Village residents are reminded that the Village now has a site, open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day during the normal work week, where such wastes can be transported to, in your own vehicle. The site is located at the Village wastewater treatment facility on East State St. ONLY Village residents will be allowed access to the site. The Village is only able to accept branches or trees that are less than 8 inches in diameter. No stumps will be accepted.
Residents are also reminded that all piles of limbs, debris, leaves, brush, etc. to be picked up at the curb must be kept individually sorted. Any piles found to be mixed together will not be picked up by Village crews. Please note that only reasonably sized brush piles will be picked up by village crews. Large piles resulting from the removal of trees, shrubbery and hedgerows are the responsibility of the property owner. Residents must make private arrangements to have these types of wastes removed from their property. After November 3, 2014, no further pick-up of any items will occur again until Monday April 20, 2015.
The Department would like to additionally remind residents that it is illegal to pile brush, limbs, debris and leaves beyond the curb line of the street, in any ditch line, or in any part of the street itself. Residents may be fined for placing such items in the streets; this poses a serious safety hazard to motorists and pedestrians as well as acting to plug up the drainage facilities during rainstorms. The DPW wishes to thank you in advance for your full cooperation in this matter. It is only through your cooperation that we can continue these services.

SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM
June 28, 2013
Village of Lowville - Sidewalk Improvement Program
The Village of Lowville will continue the Sidewalk Improvement Program that allows property owners to replace qualifying sidewalks with partial reimbursement provided by the Village. This initial phase is completely voluntary and it is the responsibility of the property owner to participate. Any Village of Lowville property owner is eligible to participate if their Village property taxes and water/sewer bills are paid in full.
Applicable sidewalks will meet the following conditions:
Only sidewalks on street frontage are eligible for this program. Sidewalks that lead to a front door, along a driveway, etc. are not eligible. Village officials will inspect the existing sidewalk and will grade it as a Level A, B, C. Level A is in good condition and not in need of replacement. Level B is in unsafe or poor condition and in need of replacement. Level C is where no current sidewalk exists. If your sidewalk qualifies as a Level B or C, the Village of Lowville will provide reimbursement for replacement of those specific blocks. Property owners will be reimbursed $2.50 per square foot, up to a maximum amount of $1000. Prior to final reimbursement, the Village will perform two inspections to ensure the new sidewalk is constructed to specification.
Property owners may call the Village office to have an application mailed to them, pick up an application at the Village office or print one from the web site. After the application is received, the property owner will then work with Village staff and proceed on construction after approval from the Village. The Village DPW staff will schedule a time to inspect the sidewalk. The Village will remove existing sidewalk, at no charge. The property owner must then complete the sidewalk construction on their own or by hiring a private contractor.
Program applications and guidelines can be obtained at the Village of Lowville office at 5535 Bostwick Street or downloaded from the the Village website. Any questions about the program can be answered at 376-2834.
