Welcome to the official website for the village of Oneida Castle, NY.

Fall is almost here and the lawn racking and tree trimming is getting done. The village board is still going to do the fall pickup and it will be done the week before Thanksgiving. We think the leaves will be down and hopefully we won’t have any snow. Remember that all leaves must be bagged and limbs can be no larger than 4". I have placed the dates in Events on this website.

We have not had any more sewer meetings and hopefully things will mover right along and we will start digging in the spring. I said hopefully because you never know what is going to happen to slow us down. I will keep you posted what is going on with the sewer program after we have our next meeting or if I learn anything new.

Even though our budget is less than what we planned for we thought it was important to put down new playground mulch in the playground. There are no companies making playground mulch right now so we placed it in the major parts of the playground which is around the swings and play station. Will have to finish it up I the spring when they start making the playground mulch again.

Please don’t forget that we are having a public hearing about the new sewer ordinance at 6:30 PM on November 9th with our regular meeting being held right after the public hearing. I am again attaching the new ordinance below and if you have any questions please call any board member for the answer and if there is a change to be made then we can make it before the public hearing. Each legal notice that we place in the newspaper cost money which we are trying to save. We will gladly listen to any comments and make any changes needed. Our phone numbers are on this website. Hope to see you at the meetings.
