Vandalism Notice

7/7/2020

This morning, the Village became aware of vandalism at an unoccupied property, this vandalism was of a racist nature. We will not give credence to this by sharing a photograph. It is deeply disturbing that this has occurred within proximity to our community, we believe we are better than this. Stamford tends to come together in times of crisis. As proud Americans the words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” should hold meaning, they do for the Stamford Village Mayor, and the Stamford Village Board of Trustees condemns such actions; and we ask residents to come together at this time in making it clear that we as a community do not support racial prejudice, nor will we tolerate racist actions; because our community is better than this.


Election Information

Pursuant to Executive Order 202.26, which was issued the evening of May 1, 2020, all village elections scheduled to take place in March, April, May, and June of 2020 have been postponed and rescheduled to September 15, 2020. The Order states that for any village election in which the ballot was fully determined when the election was postponed, the election will proceed with the same ballot. Additionally, if the ballots were already printed the ballots may be used at the September 15, 2020 election, despite displaying the original date of the election. In village elections for which ballot access was incomplete when petitioning was suspended, the Executive Order states that the petitioning process will continue to be on hold until the NY on Pause Order ceases, subject to a process determined by a future Executive Order. Lastly, while current elected village officials will remain in office until the rescheduled election is held on September 15, 2020, the newly elected officials will assume office when the results of the election are certified pursuant to Election Law § 15-126.

Clock News

As of Noon on June 5th 2020 the Village Hall Tower Clock has begun tolling the hours once again. The Historic E. Howard & Co of Boston Tower Clock was installed in the Village Hall in 1910 as a memorial to Mr. Edward Johnson. After many years of silence, a group of Stamford citizens raised the funds necessary to restore and electrify the clock, this was back in 1982. Robert Dee, a tower clock expert that happens to live in Delhi, examined the clock last fall and determined that the striking mechanism could be repaired with the replacement of a worn part.  Mr. Dee machined and installed his new part and adjusted the clock so it is now striking out the hours on a one-ton bronze bell located directly above the clock in the louvered section of the tower.

This is a fitting time to revive our village timepiece as the fire department has discontinued the noon whistle due to the cost of electricity. Mr. Dee is able to keep track of the clock’s accuracy remotely.

Flag Day Postponed

The Village of Stamford
The Stamford Volunteer Fire department 04 June 2020

In a joint decision the Village of Stamford and The Stamford Volunteer Fire department have postponed the 2020 Flag Day Parade scheduled for Sunday evening June 14th to a future date to be announced.

It was briefly determined that the parade would be manageable with care being taken to follow the Governors guidelines laid out in executive order 202.33. After conversations with the Delaware County Board of Health and other state agencies it became apparent that having the Parade on June 14th would be impossible.

Village government finds itself on the front line in interpreting and employing guidance from Albany. While adding another disappointment for those anticipating a cherished summer event, it was decided that erring on the side of caution was the most prudent route to take. The fire department plans to reschedule the parade for some time later in the summer provided directives available at that time can be followed.

Both The Village of Stamford and The Stamford Volunteer Fire Department would like to commend our citizens for their patience and understanding. So many sacrifices have been required of our residents and it is due to their cooperation that we have had so few cases of Covid-19 in our communities.
