Village Questions

What does PPA (Purchase Power Adjustment) mean on my electric bill?

We are allotted only a certain amount of hydro power from the NY Power Authority. When we exceed that number of kilowatt hours we have to buy nuclear power at a much higher rate. This added cost is prorated through the fuel adjustment charge on your electric bill.

Where does our electric come from?

The electric produced by hydro power comes from Niagara Falls, NY and is purchased from the New York Power Authority. It is wheeled to our substation by NYSEG.

Who does our garbage collection/recyclables?

Waste Management picks up our garbage and recyclables each Tuesday. If there is a holiday, it will then be picked up on Wednesday. The annual cost for this service is included in your Town and County Tax Bill.

Where does our water come from?

Wells provide the water which is stored and treated in a Village owned reservoir. The water is then gravity fed throughout the Village.

Is there fluoride in the water?

No, fluoride is not added to the Village water. However, chlorine is added for purification purposes.

Do I need a zoning and building permit?

A zoning permit is required from the Village whenever an improvement occurs including construction, alterations or a change in occupancy (1 to 2 family or 2 to 1 family, home occupations, etc). Once a zoning permit is obtained a building permit may be required by the County. You can contact Wyoming County Building and Fire Codes at 585-786-8820 for more information and questions.

When are Village taxes due?
