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

*   After hour emergencies = Byrnes Message Bureau at (845) 431-6677

The meeting, held at the Historic Watts dePeyster Hall, was opened at 7:06 pm and a quorum was determined to be present for the conduct of business.

ZBA Attendees:

  • Chair Laura Gail Tyler
  • Tim Lynch
  • Sam Merritt
  • Bob Zises


  • Karen Cleaveland
  • Bob Juliano

The first item of business was to approve the draft minutes from the July 23, 2012 meeting.Bob Zises moved to approve the minutes as presented, Tim Lynch seconded, all in favor. Motion carried.


5111-5115 Route 9G – Application for Interpretation: The next item was the open public hearing which was continued from the June 25, 2012 meeting. It was continued to January 28, 2013 but cancelled due to the weather. It was continued to tonight and the applicant Jack Grumet was informed. Chair Tyler discussed the public hearing with Village attorney Victoria Polidoro and whether it needed to be re-noticed. Chair Tyler spoke with Mr. Grumet who expressed an interest in continuing with the interpretation even though light industry had been removed from the code as a permitted use. He wanted to know if the storage unit would fit under anything else. Under Village of Tivoli Local Law No. 3 of 2012, Section 5.6, B. number 10 states: Drive-in or drive-through windows, self-storage units, motor vehicle sales and rentals, filling stations and other uses not explicitly listed under permitted and special permitted uses in section 231-21 are not permitted. Mr. Grumet will be receiving an email from the Village attorney. Because the application for interpretation is moot, the open public hearing is moot.

Chair Tyler welcomed a new member to the ZBA, Sam Merritt.


Bob Zises moved to adjourn the meeting at 7:18 pm. Sam Merritt seconded, all in favor. Motion carried.

Respectfully submitted,
