Kenmore's SafeCam Program

Kenmore SafeCam is the Kenmore Police Department's newest crime investigation and prevention tool. 

It allows you, the residents and businesses of the Village of Kenmore, to register your outside security cameras which may help deter crime and assist the Kenmore Police Department (KPD) with their crime prevention strategies in your neighborhood.

Registration

Registration is simple and only takes a few minutes of time. You need to provide basic contact information and where the cameras are located. There is no cost for registration and your personal information will be kept confidential. You may cancel your registration at any time by sending an email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Verification

Once you complete the registration process a member from the Police Department will contact you by telephone to request a visit to your residence/business to verify the information you have provided.

Call to Duty

The Kenmore Police Department will only contact you if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security cameras. Police personnel may request to view and copy video images captured by your camera to assist in the investigation of a crime.

Registration Application

The SafeCam application can be found by clicking the "Register" tab found to the left under the menu: Police/Safecam/Register:

Happy Memorial Day!  Village offices closed on Monday.

Trash/Garbage collection delayed 1 day all week.

NO Recycle Collection week of May 29th.

Parade starts at 11 AM on Monday 5/29 along Delaware Avenue.

Please pause in your celebration to remember those servicemen and women who gave their lives in service to our Country.

Beginning May 8, 2017, the Village will start a new Recycle Program.  During the Week of April 24th, a Recycle TOTE will be delivered to all residential properties. Only 1 tote is being delivered to each property, whether it is a single residence or a double.

 This new Recycle Tote is a smaller version of your Garbage Tote and has a green lid to easily identify it for RECYCLE USE ONLY.  Please place all of your recyclables in this tote, including paper products.

An Information Packet has been included with your new Recycle Tote, including a revised Recycle/Garbage Guide, a Calendar detailing when to put your Recycle Tote out for collection, and general rules governing recyclables.  We encourage you to read through this information and to keep this information handy for future reference.

Because these Recycle Totes hold more, the Village will be collecting Recyclables EVERY OTHER WEEK beginning the week of May 8th.  There will be no change to your Collection day and Garbage/Trash collection will continue to take place every week.

Please remember not to place any trash/garbage inside your Recycle Tote.  The Village will not collect garbage/trash from a Recycle Tote and we cannot accept Recyclables which have been co-mingled with trash/garbage.

Your blue tote is recyclable.  If you wish to recycle your blue bin, you may place it beside your Recycle Tote for collection.  You are not required to return your blue bin, however and may keep it for your own use.

MOVING?

 

COVID 19 UPDATE 11/2020 - Kenmore is currently identified as an Orange Zone.  As a result, extra precautions are in place to ensure the safety of our employees and our residents.

At this time, Sump Pump Certificates are not being issued.  If you are Selling your property, you will need to secure a Sump Pump Waiver.  Please call the Building Department for further information:

(716) 873-5700

In order to close on your property, you will need to take care of the following:

 

Sump Pump Certificate

 

This Certificate shows that your sump pump and bubbler are in compliance with Village law.  Before the certificate can be issued, both the plumbing and electrical inspector will need to inspect your system to determine if it is in compliance.  Many times, more than one inspection will be needed before the certificate can be issued, so it is recommended that inspections are scheduled as soon as there is a Contract for Sale for your property.

 

To schedule your inspections, please call the Building Department at (716) 873-5700.

 

Because the inspectors will need access to your basement, the Seller (not the attorney) needs to schedule the inspections and will obtain the certificate.

 

There is a $75 fee to obtain your Sump pump certificate and it is valid for 2 years.

 

Waivers can be obtained if you are unable to complete inspections prior to closing.  In order to obtain a waiver, you must bring in a check, payable to the “Village of Kenmore” for $1500 for residential properties with less than 5 units; $5,000  Commercial properties with less than 5 units; and $10,000 for any building, residential or commercial, with five or more units*.  This is paid by the Purchaser. 

 

Waivers are valid for 60 days, and can be renewed subject to the consent of the Building Inspector and Clerk/Treasurer.  The deposited funds are returned if a Certificate of Compliance is obtained within 30 days from when the waiver is issued.

 

* Fees may change from time to time.  Please call the Building Department to verify current fee information.

 

 

Tax Certificate and Village Tax Receipt

 

A tax certificate is required for the sale of any property located in a village in Erie County.  This certificate details outstanding violations, taxes, mortgages held by the Village through Community Development, as well as water account information.  Certificates are accurate only as of the date of issue.  It is possible that additional liens/violations may be applied to the property after the date of issue and before closing.

 

Also, please note that water information is accurate only up to the date of the last meter read.  In most cases, this is an outside meter read.  All close-outs of water meter accounts require an INTERIOR meter read.  Since there can be variance between the outside and interior meter read (due to the weather exposure of the exterior meter), the interior read will determine the final bill.

 

The Tax Certificate is usually obtained by the Seller’s Attorney.  The cost is $20 (Plus $1 for a copy of the Village Tax Receipt).  Checks should be made payable to “Village of Kenmore”.  Please send your check and request to the Clerk/Treasurer’s Office.

  

 

County and School Tax Receipts

 

The Town of Tonawanda Clerk serves as the Tax Collector for the Village, Town and School District.  Any tax questions should be referred to that office.

 

Tax receipts are obtained through the Town of Tonawanda Clerk’s Office and are usually requested by the Seller’s Attorney.  You can also check your tax information on the Town website at:

https://egov.basgov.com/tonawanda/

 

STAR Program

If you are a new homeowner, please remember to go online and apply for STAR as soon as possible.  STAR provides SCHOOL tax relief to NYS residents.  The STAR application can be found at:

https://tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star/default.htm

 

 

Water Accounts

 

If you’re moving out of Kenmore, you will need to call the Water Department to arrange for a final read of your Water Meter and to close out your account.  Please note that we cannot finalize the close out of your account until the new owner comes in to open his/her water account.

 

Also note that, we require INTERIOR read of the water meter in order to close out the account. 

 

 COVID 19 UPDATE 11/2020 - Kenmore is currently identified as an Orange Zone.  As a result, extra precautions are in place to ensure the safety of our employees and our residents.

At this time, we are not performing interior water meter checks. 

If you are Selling your property, you can send a photo of your interior meter to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We will use this to close out the account and let you know if any additional information is needed

 

If you have Purchased a property, you can set up your account by sending a photo of of the interior meter (located in the basement) along with the date of your closing, names and contact (phone, cell, email) of all property owners AND an emergency contact.  This information should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

One time meter charge will be added to your first bill.

 

Community Development Loans

 

If you are a recipient of a Community Development Loan, please note that these loans must be paid off with any transfer of the property, including transfers between family members.  A Satisfaction of Mortgage will be prepared upon receipt of the payoff check.  This check should be made payable to the “Village of Kenmore”

 

 Zoning and Street Ownership Verification

 

If you require a letter verifying the zoning of a property and/or the ownership of the road upon which the property is located, please send a check payable to the "Village of Kenmore" for $5.00.
