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.

The Village Board meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.  The next meeting of the Alden Village Board will be held on Thursday, April 27, the work session will begin at 6:30pm, and the board meeting at 7:30 pm.Thank you.

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.
