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

The Village of Maybrook sends our warmest thoughts and highest hopes as you celebrate your graduation!
Be bold, be courageous, be your best Class of 2020!
Pursuant to Executive Order 202.26, which was issued the evening of May 1, 2020, all village elections scheduled to take place in March, April, May, and June of 2020 have been postponed and rescheduled to September 15, 2020.  The Order states that for any village election in which the ballot was fully determined when the election was postponed, the election will proceed with the same ballot.  Additionally, if the ballots were already printed the ballots may be used at the September 15, 2020 election, despite displaying the original date of the election.
 
In village elections for which ballot access was incomplete when petitioning was suspended, the Executive Order states that the petitioning process will continue to be on hold until the NY on Pause Order ceases, subject to a process determined by a future Executive Order. 
 
Lastly, while current elected village officials will remain in office until the rescheduled election is held on September 15, 2020, the newly elected officials will assume office when the results of the election are certified pursuant to Election Law § 15-126.




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.
