Due to the high probability of a significant snow storm occurring for most of tomorrow, the Town of Glenville will be closing all town offices on Tuesday, March 14th to ensure the safety of our staff and residents.  This will also help us focus our Highway Department on the cleanup effort for our town roads, as the storm will intensive throughout the day.  We expect to reopen all operations on Wednesday morning.  All scheduled town events for Tuesday night will also be cancelled, including Town Court and the scheduled DEC meeting on the Kenco project.  The meeting has been rescheduled to April 4th at the Senior Center, starting at 7 PM.    

 Additionally, the town will be under a snow emergency beginning at midnight, tonight, until further notice. This means on-street parking is prohibited within the town until the snow emergency is lifted. Violators will be ticketed and subject to be towed.  We ask that residents restrict all unnecessary travel.     

High Wind Storm of March 2, 2017

The Glenville Highway crews will begin storm damage clean up on Monday, March 6, 2017. Crews will make one pass through town to clean up all limbs or brush that are placed to the edge of the lawn.  Do not place anything on the pavement or in the roadway. Limbs should be no larger than 6” in diameter and 4’ in length.

Loose Leaf Clean Up

Crews are currently vacuuming leaves on state and county roads off the west side of Route 50. We are only collecting leaves that remain from the fall, please do not add any new piles. We will return to the residential neighborhoods off of Pashley and Eltinge next week then continue working south.

Funeral Pre-Planning Program
Glenville Senior Center

The Glenville Senior Center is hosting a program on Funeral Pre-Planning on Thursday, March 16th at 1:30 p.m.  This program is brought to us by Scott & Barbieri Pre Need.

A plan to devise before your demise. When a death occurs, there are numerous decisions that must be made in a very short amount of time, frequently under adverse emotional strain when clear thinking can be quite clouded.  Because we have witnessed the difficulties that many families encounter during the time of loss, we are dedicated to doing everything we can to help ease the burden that usually falls on loved ones. This seminar offers real life stories and information every person needs to know before the need arises. 

Please sign up in advance at the front desk, Glenville Senior Center, 32 Worden Road or by calling 374-0734.  Free and open to the public.
