News & Events

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 quarterly water and sewer bills were mailed out on August 1st and are due without penalty by August 29, 2016. If you haven’t received your blue post card bill in the mail, please contact the Village Office at 937-9216 X10.

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.
