THE DPW WILL NO LONGER COLLECT ELECTRONIC WASTE EFFECTIVE June 1, 2015

 

 

Due to recent changes in New York State Law concerning e-waste,

the Village of Kenmore will no longer be picking up electronic waste,

beginning June 1, 2015. Electronic or e-waste refers to items such as

computers, laptops and televisions.

 

Residents can dispose of these items at County-sponsored collection sites

or at the store where the item was purchased.  

 

Beginning June 1st, any electronics left at the curb will be tagged with

notification that the Village will not be picking up this item. 

Information will also be given as to how to dispose of e-waste.

 

Please note that if the item remains at the curb, it will be subject to the

Village’s Garbage and Refuse laws, including fines for non-compliance.

 

9/2016 - Advanced Technology Recycling will accept many Electronic devices free of charge. 

Please see Public Works for more information.

NEW WATER BILLS and


NEW WATER ACCOUNT NUMBERS


As of June 1, 2015


 


The Village of Kenmore is implementing a new water


software program to allow for greater functionality and


added security to our system. The conversion will take place


beginning June 1, 2015. 


 


As a result of this conversion, your water bill will look


different and you will have a NEW account number. 


Your new account number will be located in the upper left-hand corner of your bill.  Please be sure to use this new account number when making payment or inquiry on your water account.


 


If your bank makes the payment on your water account


for you, please be sure to provide the bank with your


NEW water account number in order to avoid any problems


 in crediting your account.


 


While every effort has been made to make this conversion as


seamless as possible, please carefully review your water bill when it arrives to ensure that all the information on the bill is accurate.  Please call our office if any


 information needs to be corrected or if you should have any questions concerning your account.  The office is opened Monday through Friday,


8 AM – 5:30 PM.  For phone inquiries, please call (716) 873-5700.


 


Thank you in advance for cooperation as we move forward


with this water department conversion.


 

 

KENMORE AWARDED $700,000 TAP GRANT FROM NEW YORK STATE

 

The Village received word this week that its application for TAP funding had been granted.  $700,000 will be used to improve the right of way on Elmwood Avenue in the Village in order to provide better and safer transportation for pedestrians and bicyclists.

 

Through this grant, sidewalks will be replaced and, on one side of the street, the sidewalks will be expanded to 10 feet in width in order to accommodate room for both pedestrians and bicyclists. At present, there is no designated bike route in Kenmore. Since Elmwood Avenue connects the Village of Kenmore to both the Town of Tonawanda and the City of Buffalo, this project will create a safe route for those traveling through the Village by bike. 

 

In addition, green space will replace many of the areas which have been black-topped over.  This will not only improve the appearance of Elmwood, but also will make it safer, by eliminating the unsafe practice of cars parking over the right of way which currently exists.  ADA compliant curb cuts will also be added.

 

A press release issued by the Governor’s Office stated: 

 

The funds are made available to the State through the Federal Highway Administration and are administered by the State Department of Transportation. The program provides up to 80 percent of the cost of each project, with the remaining share coming from the project sponsor. The funds are dedicated for strategic investments in transportation alternatives and with a local sponsor match of more than $33.6 million, support a total investment of nearly $103.7 million.

The projects announced today were chosen through a competitive solicitation process and rated on established criteria that included public benefit and community support for the project; connectivity to an existing transportation system; how well the proposed improvements benefit walking and bicycling; impact on local or regional economies; availability of matching funds; and ability to deliver the project within federally required timeframes. 135 applications were received
.

 

Only 68 projects were awarded funding state-wide and only 10 of those awards were given to Erie County Municipalities.

 

Mayor Mang was happy to see that Kenmore had been successful in securing this funding. He had established the Elmwood Avenue Streetscape Committee (comprised of Elmwood business and property owners) to best determine the needs of the area and to assist in putting together the Village’s plan design.  “I’m thrilled that we can finally have the financial assistance needed to improve Elmwood Avenue”, the Mayor stated.

 

KENMORE NAMED ONE OF THE TOP 20 “CITIES” ON THE RISE IN NYS

 

The Village of Kenmore has been named as one of the Top 20 municipalities

in New York State on the rise in a recent report published by NerdWallet. 

Looking at growth of the working age population, employment and income,

Kenmore was ranked 15. The majority of the Top 20 came from White Plains

or Nassau-Suffolk metro areas, which makes Kenmore’s presence

on the list all the more impressive.
