Safety tips for trick-or-treaters this Halloween
 
·         Anyone who is sick or self-isolating must stay home.
·         Trick-or-treat in your household group.
·         Leave space between you and other groups to reduce crowding on stairs and sidewalks.
·         Wash your hands before you go out, when you get home, and before eating treats.
·         Do not touch your face.
·         Keep hand sanitizer with you if eating treats on the go.

 
When handing out treats:
·         Turn off your porch light and stay at home if you are sick or self-isolating.
·         Use tongs, a baking sheet or make a candy slide to give more space when handing out candy.
·         Hand out sealed, prepackaged, individual treats instead of offering a shared bowl.
·         Wear a non-medical mask that covers your nose and mouth when handing out treats.
·         Be more outside than inside. If you can, stand outside your door to hand out treats to avoid unnecessary contact with your door or doorbell.
·         If you are unable to sit outside to hand out treats, clean and disinfect doorbells and knobs, handrails, and any other high touch surface often during the evening
·         If you are decorating, avoid props that can cause coughing, such as smoke machines.

The Village of Maybrook is a proud sponsor of Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October!
Pink Ribbons will be on display at the Village of Maybrook Government in support of Breast Cancer Awareness to raise awareness through education on symptoms and treatment.

On Friday, September 25th, the Maybrook Troop 236 Scouts hosted their “35th Annual Awards Dinner” which was originally scheduled to be held in June but had to be postponed due to COVID-19. This was an abbreviated Awards Dinner compared to the ones held previously however with masks being worn and social distancing, the event was a success and the kids in the troop had closure from their previous year of hard work.
As always, we thank Scoutmasters Bill Giannico and Abby Williams and the Emeritus Scoutmaster Jim Barnett for all they do for the youth in our community.
Mayor Dennis Leahy had the honor of presenting the Maybrook Troop 236 “Scout of the Year Award” to Arica Pearson Leary. Arica made Maybrook Troop 236 history by becoming the first female recipient of the “Scout of the Year Award”!
Congratulations to all of the scouts on a great year despite the circumstances of COVID-19.

“National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives. Now in its 31st year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those living in recovery. Addiction and mental health disorders are a serious problem in our country, but there is hope!  The Village of Maybrook’s close partnership with Hope Not Handcuffs provides a way for those suffering with addiction to get the help they need.  We are here to help.”

The Maybrook Fire Chief Patrick Romanik and the Maybrook Fire Department hosted a 9/11 Ceremony this evening to honor and remember fallen hero and Maybrook resident David Weiss of the NYFD. Always remember and never forget our fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives, the victims and their families.

The Village of Maybrook wishes to thank Village of Maybrook Troop 236 Scout Aiden Duran (center) for choosing the Village of Maybrook for his Eagle Scout Project. Aiden, with the assistance of his fellow scouts, painted several fire hydrants and yellow caution lines throughout the village.
The Village of Maybrook is proud of the young men and women in the Maybrook Troop 236 Scouting Program and of their contributions to our community!
Congratulations to Aiden Duran who is in the home stretch of attaining his goal of Eagle Scout!

Report of Examination of the Village of Maybrook conducted by the office of the New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, State Comptroller in July 2020 ; https://www.osc.state.ny.us/sites/default/files/local-government/documents/pdf/2020-07/maybrook-2020-54.pdf

RESIDENTS PLEASE BE ADVISED!
Our wastewater treatment plant operations specialist has notified us that there has been a huge influx of wipes, rags and rubber gloves coming into our treatment facility and is creating a large issue for proper plant operation.  The law prohibits flushing of any substances into the municipal sanitary sewer system with the exception of paper products specifically made for this purpose. Although many of the commercially available “wipes” claim to be biodegradable and flushable, THEY ARE NOT.  Rubber gloves, any types of wipes/rags and cooking oils etc. are also not to be flushed down into the sanitary sewer system as well. Cooking oils form grease balls that become as hard as cement in the sewer lines 
All of these can and do cause sewer main and service lateral back-ups (which are the responsibility of the homeowner to the main)  and very often lead to sanitary sewer line overflows and severe damage to equipment at the treatment facility resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in repairs and cleanup costs.
 
We understand that there is now more than ever a concerted effort to clean and disinfect surfaces etc. the materials used should be disposed of in a plastic trash bag, tightly sealed and put out for garbage collection.
 
 
We truly appreciate you help in keeping out sanitary sewer collection system and treatment facility in its optimum operating condition.

Supt. of Public Works
