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.

It's that time of year...
When the weather gets nice, the peddlers come out. Village Law requires that any person peddling or soliciting within the Village obtain a permit. This includes businesses selling goods or services and non-profit groups soliciting donations.
Village residents are reminded to ask any person soliciting at their door to see his or her Village-issued permit. Each person must carry his or her own permit (printed on Village letterhead) when soliciting and produce it, upon request.
If a person does not have a permit, please call 652-1111 so the Police may investigate.
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.
