New “Garbage Can” Law in Tivoli takes effect March 1st, 2018!

Dear Residents,

In response to years of garbage/recycling receptacles being left out at the curb, blocking the public roadways and sidewalks, creating safety concerns, and negatively impacting the charm and aesthetics of our community, the Village of Tivoli Board of Trustees updated Village Code Chapter 184: Solid Waste on January 21st, 2018.

This law includes new rules which govern the placement of garbage/recycling receptacles in our Village. These rules apply to both Village collection and collection by the private haulers who service customers in Tivoli (Welsh, Waste Management, Royal Carting, etc.). Please read and follow these rules:

No garbage/recycling bags/receptacles shall be placed curbside prior to 6:00PM on the night before collection.

All garbage/recycling bags/receptacles must be removed from the curbside by 10:00PM of the day of collection.

At all other times receptacles must be stored out of public view, or if not feasible, behind the front building line, on the owner’s property. (This means no cans stored in the front yard. Side yards and backyards are acceptable.)

Everyone must know the collection day of THEIR service, be it Village or private. Owners AND occupants (tenants) of a property can be held responsible.

Receptacles remaining near the curb, street, or sidewalk, outside of the approved time of collection can be removed and disposed of by the Village and/or result in a court appearance ticket and a possible fine of $50. Each day of continuance of an offense shall constitute a separate offense.

Please take responsibility for the receptacles you use, pull those receptacles back to the side/rear of your home, keep our sidewalks clear and open for pedestrians, and the public view-shed free from garbage cans the other 6 days of the week.

Call to Order / Determination of Quorum

The meeting, held at the Historic Watts de Peyster Hall, was opened at 7:00PM and a quorum was determined to be present for the conduct of business.

Planning Board Attendees:
Chair Mike Billeci
John Hallstein
Pamela Morin

Village Trustee/Planning Board Liaison, Susan Ezrati
Applicants: Marisi & Ricardo Fernandez; Francisco Fernandez

None Present

Chair Mike Billeci opened the meeting at 7:00 PM.

Marisi Fernandez gave a presentation providing information of their plan for Rojo. She reviewed maintaining the present floor plan, keeping the bar and kitchen, along with the
tables and chairs. The food served will be tapas with a Spanish/Caribbean flavor. They will showcase local produce, cheeses, and charcuterie.

The outdoor sign is the only change; they look to add 2 low wattage lights, which will be hung from the cover facing the sign.

They would like outdoor seating, seasonally, and maintain the existing garden. Outdoors there will be 4, 2person tables.

Their plan is to have music inside from 4:00PM-11:00PM; they will be open outside from
4:00PM-10:00PM, however, music will stop outside at 9:00PM. There appear to be 2 speakers, part of an existing system; Marisi and Ricardo will check with Jake Stortini, to
determine if the system works.

There are no plans for changes to the interior.

The plan will be submitted to the Municipal Planner, and to the County.

A Public Hearing was scheduled for Monday, March 28, 2016. On a motion made by Pamela Morin, and a second by Donna Matthews, all were in favor of a public hearing.

Donna Matthews moved to establish escrow and submit to the Planner; with a second by Pamela Morin; all in favor.

Additional comments were to ensure outdoor music was included in the application, as
well as the outdoor lighting. Regarding the lighting, be certain all requests are made as
soon as possible as changes which may arise later will have to once again go through an approval process.

The Board reviewed the DRAFT minutes from the January 25, 2016 meeting; on a motion made by Pamela Morin, and seconded by John Hallstein; the minutes were accepted and approved. All in favor.


Donna Matthews moved to close the meeting at 7:31PM. Pamela Morin seconded. All
in favor. Motion carried.

Respectfully submitted,


Robin L. Bruno
Village Clerk
