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.

Also Present:
Patrick Hildenbrand; 5127 Route 9G Applicant
Brian Denu; 5127 Route 9G Applicant
Angela Lore; Attorney for 5127 Route 9G Applicants
John Molinaro; 57 Broadway Applicant

The first item of business was with 5127 Route 9G applicants Patrick Hildenbrand and Brian Denu, as well as their attorney Angela Lore. Mike Billeci requested from the applicants a large format site plan document based on a survey for accuracy, that is drawn to scale, either 18”x24” or 24”x36” in size. This plan should be drawn by an engineer or architect and must include space for a signature block, notes from the resolution with requirements such as curb cut and plantings. The building elevation was determined to not be very important, and the floor plan of the interior not necessary because it exceeds 500 square feet. The code states that there needs to be a facility for pedestrians, which Mike suggested be 5 feet wide. Existing vegetation should be preserved and a landscaped buffer must be planted, one canopy tree and ten shrubs for every 40 feet. The applicants must plant 3 canopy trees and ten shrubs. The buffer must be 20 feet deep and adjacent to the road. The horseshoe driveway will not adhere to code as there can only be one curb cut.

A discussion about the sidewalk took place. Applicants are hesistant to install a sidewalk. Angela Lore
stated it would be a “sidewalk to nowhere.” Mike Billeci suggested a gravel path to adhere to the code,
as the sidewalks have been added to the Master Plan due to safety of pedestrians. In addition to
aforementioned details of the site plan, any lighting changes must be included if applicants decide to
change the lighting or use the sign from Champlin’s Deli. Once the applicants submit the site plan to the
Board it will be reviewed for approval or more changes may be suggested.

The next item addressed was 57 Broadway. John Molinaro brought a picture of a tent that would be
similar to one used in the backyard of 57 Broadway, for private breakfasts over the summer for wedding
parties. He was concerned about needing a permit but Mike Billeci suggested consolidating the
application by adding the tent, as the tent might pose a problem with the parking in the rear of the
building. A large format print of the site plan was requested with details of the resolution, any notes,
and a space for the signature block. The building elevation was suggested to be noted on the plan as it
will protect the owner in the future from any complaints. Pamela mentioned the potholes near the
sidewalk being a liability as a few pedestrians have stumbled there. John Molinaro clarified that Lisa
Lynds does not own the building and it must be addressed in the memo that Kalo Taxidi, LLC is the
owner of the building.

Pamela Morin mentioned her plan to place temporary storage behind Murray’s but she has not
submitted a site plan for this meeting.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:52PM.


Respectfully submitted,
