Residents May Notice "Temporary Meters"
While waterline work is ongoing, the contractor may attach a "locating device" to an outside water connection (i.e., a hose bib) which helps the construction crews know where a waterline connection is for a single property, to help avoid service interruptions for homeowners.
Work has begun on the Oakwood Avenue construction project.
(Click on the link above to see the timeline.) The project spans all
of Oakwood, excluding the section between Olean and Elmwood.
Work includes replacing the waterline, making drainage improvements and full reconstruction of the road. The project is broken into two phases, part done this year and part next year. Only four trees are planned to be removed, near the intersection of Hamburg Street.

New Trash Collection Contractor On The Job
Since June 1st, Modern Disposal Services, a new contractor, began collecting garbage and recycling in the Village. Pickup days and maximum quantities allowed for collection remained unchanged.
See the detailed brochure for more information.
The exact time schedule for pickups may vary slightly from
the previous contractor and can also vary from week to week.
Keep in mind:
- Drivers begin their route as early as 7 a.m.
- Delays may occur due to route reassignment, driver call-ins, truck maintenance, traffic and/or weather.
- Delays can impact collection times resulting in being earlier than expected or much later.
- Trucks can become fully loaded in the middle of a route or street, requiring the driver to leave the route and empty the truck before returning to complete the route.
A new option is that residents may purchase totes from the Modern company. Trash left for collection in non-tote containers (i.e., a 32-gallon trash can) will continue to be collected, following the standard limits.
The Village will continue to sell tags for added bags of trash over the limit, available at the Village Hall for $5 each.
Watch the WVIB Behind the Scenes report featuring the Modern recycling operation.
Also, read an informative article from the New York State Conference Of Mayors (NYCOM) on changes in the recycling market, with insights
on why fewer kinds of recyclables are accepted than in past years.
Construction Underway On Joint Municipal Center
Construction has begun on the new Joint Municipal Center, office space being constructed by the Town of Aurora that will house both Town and Village of East Aurora government offices. An old fire hall building on Oakwood Avenue is being converted, adjacent to the existing Senior Center.
