Guidance for Businesses Eligible to Reopen as part of Phase One

    The State has provided additional guidance for businesses eligible to reopen as part of Phase One.  That information is located at: https://forward.ny.gov/industries-reopening-phase

·         Businesses will be required to submit an affirmation that they have read the master guidance documents relative to their industry classification.  The link to this is contained at the end of the master guidance document.

·         Businesses are also required to complete a Safety Plan.  A template for the plan is provided.  Businesses need to keep a copy of their plan on file – they do not need to submit it.

·         Both of these need to be completed prior to opening.

·         The documents are also available on our website: https://dcecodev.com/

·         Essential businesses that have remained in operation will be required to also complete an affirmation.  That portal will be coming soon.

Hydrant flushing- DPW will be flushing hydrant, water mains this Thursday and Friday nights May 14th & 15th from 9PM – 5AM.

DPW will be flushing hydrant, water mains this Thursday and Friday nights May 14th & 15th from 9PM – 5AM.  Please pass the message along to all. 

It starts at water tank down Academy Street to Main Street to River Street. All Flushing is west of Academy Street on the first night.  Also good to pass along to any one you know that has not used their building in the last 2 months.  They should flush out the standing water that is in their plumbing. Let cold water run first, to bring fresh water in from mains, then through the whole house or building. There is nothing wrong with water, just has been sitting there for a while.  Joe Hornbeck 

NOTICE: No Pool & No “Camp Here” This Summer

The Trustees and Mayor have made the difficult decision not to open the Village pool this season. Due to Covid-19 and additional guidance from the Governor’s office it will be impossible to have the Village pool open while maintaining social distancing requirements. This also means that there will be no “Camp Here” available this summer.
