News & Events

Attention( Residents, (North of Broadway and from Westcott to Emerson)

The Village of Alden Department of Public Works will be working on the water mains in your area beginning at 11:30 AM on Friday, September 30, 2016. It will be necessary to shut off the water on your street to do this repair. You may experience low pressure or no water at all during this period. We anticipate that it may take 3-4 hours to complete. After the repair you may experience cloudy or rusty water. Please make arrangements so that your use of water during this time will not be necessary. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

The following is a message from Mayor Michael Manicki:

I would like to make several comments in regard to a letter in the Alden Advertiser. First, our water is safe. Per our annual report, our water meets or exceeds all federal standards. It is not septic. Sulfur odor, which is found in many wells in the town is removed at our treatment plant. The sewer plant meets NYS discharge regulations and discharges into Ellicott Creek, not into our aquifer. As to our water tank, even if we had joined the ECWA system a tank would have been required to maintain pressure.

Village of Alden Residents-Voluntary Water Restrictions

We would like to thank all our residents for conserving  water during the drought conditions.  The restriction has been downgraded to voluntary.
Please call the Water Department at 937-7392 if you have any questions.

The Village Needs Your Help

For four years, I, Mayor Manicki have attempted to get the county highway dept. to take action to make repairs to Exchange St. and Crittenden Rd. On March 4, I wrote to Public Works Commissioner Loffredo. To date I have not had the courtesy of a reply. Through the efforts of Legislator Ted Morton I was able to find that once again, no repairs are scheduled for these streets this year. It was stated that the reason is, it is a very expensive project to repair Exchange St.

Ground Breaking on West Main Street

On March 10 Mayor Michael Manicki and board member Theodore Mezydlo joined Will Severyn, Alex Severyn and Bill Severyn from Severyn Development Inc. for a ceremonial ground breaking to kick off construction of the “Birch Creek Run” patio home subdivision on West Main Street in the Village of Alden. The $5,500,000 project will bring the first patio home community to the Village of Alden and offer 21 home sites. Each home will feature 1400 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, two full baths, kitchen with eating area and a large living room/dining room combination.

Village Crosswalks

There are three designated village crosswalk that intersect Broadway at Westcott, Emerson and Church St. State law requires drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly if a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. This law is in effect all year long, even when the signs are not in the roadway. Thank you.
