Christmas in July arrives early in West Seneca

Depew resident Jon Wascak has been spreading his Christmas cheer throughout WNY on his days off as a nurse. Tonight he is partnering with the local Tim Hortons on Transit and Olmstead and Trusted Nurse Staffing to bring coffee, donuts, and the holiday spirit to St. Joe’s Hospital tonight! Thank you!

We've all heard of Christmas in July, but even that's coming a bit early this year.

A Reminder, from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, to Flush Responsibly Certain materials flushed down toilets can damage sewer systems, wastewater treatment operations, or private septic systems, even when they are labeled as flushable. Correcting the damage is expensive, so do not flush any of the items listed below, no matter how small. Please throw them in the trash.
• diapers
• baby wipes
• disinfectant wipes
• personal hygiene products
• any paper products other than toilet paper (e.g., paper towels, facial tissues, paper napkins)
Clogged treatment systems are expensive to clean out.

If you're lucky enough to have these wipes then you've probably been using them a lot. Help protect New York's water infrastructure by properly disposing of cleaning wipes, baby wipes, and other similar wipes and not flushing them down the toilet. Proper disposal is required even if the container says they're able to be flushed.

Please take a look at this special video produced by NYCOM (New York Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials) and remember that as our Governor continues to push down unfunded mandates on to our Village, it makes it that much harder to continue to offer the quality of life and the level of services that we all feel makes our Village a special place to live and raise our families. Great job NYCOM and Village of Naples Mayor, Brian Schenk.

Thank you to the Village of Depew for my Arbor Day Black Cherry Tree!
I hope the audio will work better than last meeting. Audio was turned up on my end and it still was difficult to hear.
We have a coyote roaming in the back of our house by the defunct railroad bed behind Claude Drive. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it?
When is large trash pick up? We are supposed to be getting a new couch delivered Monday and will need to throw out our old one.
What's going on at Walden n Central🤷🏼‍♀️
Is there garbage pick up tomorrow?
Something needs to be done with the Target/Panera Bread parking lot. Someone was seriously hurt this morning and I fell as well. Someone was plowing but said he's not contracted to salt. Who can I call about this? Does anyone know?
Still no internet! I called Spectrum & they can’t even give me a time frame! Anyone else having issues?
I cant understand why a construction is working on the house next door to me on christmas day. There should be a law that companies cant work on sundays and Christmas. All i hear is pounding all day long. Cant enjoy my sundays or Christmas with my family. I might call the police. I am trying to keep my temper down.
I have a question. I have lived in Depew for almost 30 years. I never understood why they celebrate beggers night instead of Halloween. When did they start the tradition.
Is the winter parking rule in effect November 15th again this year?
