Welcome to the official website for the village of Oneida Castle, NY.
I hope everyone had a enjoyable holiday. We finally did it. We definitely have the federal grant and are just waiting for them to give us the money. The federal 4.1-million-dollar grant. plus the 1.1 million dollar NYS grant and the 3.9 million 0% interest loan will be enough to complete our sewer project. Just think, in 2019 we were going to build our sewer for 5 million dollars. Now 4 years later it cost 8.2 million. Unbelievable! Hopefully we can start digging this spring. It was a long and very busy progress but it’s finally done. Keep coming to our website to learn when the actually digging will start.
