Questions, Concerns about the Water System?

Since the severe water main break of January 8th, there have been many questions about where to get information relating to water service in Tivoli. This notice is to help you direct any questions and concerns you may have to the proper place.

As of July 2019 the Water and Sewer systems are being maintained and operated by the Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority.  They are responsible for everything from billing to repairing water main breaks and flushing hydrants. The Village of Tivoli and the Village Department of Public Works are no longer performing any of this work.

All users of the water system are encouraged to sign up for the DCWWA’s alert service. Link is below:–Advisories.htm

Additionally, here are useful numbers for various needs:

*   Operations/service issues during normal business hours: (845) 486-3601.
*   After hour emergencies = Byrnes Message Bureau at (845) 431-6677
*   Billing questions: Billing Dept. at (845) 486-3640 or email to<

Special Permit and Site Plan for bus shelter on Pine Street: Chair Billeci noted that the
application is for a special use permit for a bus shelter, not a bus stop or about locating the bus
stop. The Board agreed that there is no problem seen with the bus shelter being there. It is an
acceptable permitted use. The drawings submitted by Trustee Griffith on behalf of the Village
of Tivoli were reviewed again by the Board. A discussion followed.
Leigh Palmer made a motion to approve the application for a special permit for the Tivoli bus
shelter on the south side of the water tower, on the north side of Pine Street. The Board also
approves of the shielded light post that will be there. The setbacks are accordance to where a
bus shelter will be. The maintenance will be performed by the Village of Tivoli DPW. John
Hallstein seconded. All in favor. Motion carried.
Amended Site Plan – 52 Broadway (Santa Fe): David Weiss, owner of Santa Fe, appeared
before the Board. There was a complaint about the location of one of his dumpsters being too
close to Washburn. Mr. Weiss brought a drawing of the location of the dumpsters behind Santa
Fe. A discussion followed.
Leigh Palmer moved to accept the Santa Fe application for an amended site plan concerning the
relocation of their dumpster enclosure. There will be two new enclosures with a cyclone fence
with visual screening. The grease dumpster will face Washburn Avenue and have its own
enclosure. The current cardboard dumpster on the north side of the dumpsters will have a new
enclosure and the garbage dumpster will be in the middle. There will be stockade fencing
around the dumpsters. John Hallstein seconded. All in favor. Motion carried.
The Board reviewed the minutes from the April 22, 2013 Planning Board Meeting. It was noted
that a correction was needed on the second page. The Special Permit and Site Plan Amendment
was for a bus shelter and not a bus stop. Leigh Palmer moved to approve the minutes as
amended. John Hallstein seconded. All in favor. Motion carried.
Donna Matthews moved to close the meeting at 7:47 PM. Leigh Palmer seconded. All in favor.
Motion carried.
Respectfully submitted,
Claire Roff, Planning Board Clerk
