East Greenbush Fall Pick up
The 2019 Fall Leaf Pick up will begin on Monday, October 28, 2019 and will continue for four weeks including:
The week of October 28th, 2019, November 4th, 2019, November 11th, 2019, and November 18th, 2019
DPW employees will begin leaf pickup on Mondays, and traverse the entire town each week in the same manner until every road has been done. The employees will resume pothole patching and other winter preparation after the leaves and brush have been picked up for that week, and resume the same route the following week. If it snows, leaf pickup will be resumed as weather permits.
Leaves must be in biodegradable bags and brush is to be cut into 4’ lengths and bundled. Bags of leaves and bundles of brush must be placed on the side of the road just off the pavement. Please do not block any drainage structures or culverts and DO NOT place anything on the pavement.
Please be advised these are the only dates the Department of Public Works will be picking up leaves and bundles of brush. If you miss these dates, you may bring these items to the Transfer Station with proof of address. No permit is required for disposal of leaves and brush at the Transfer Station.

Tracey Rex Reports to the People of Schodack
I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This monthly report is an example of my commitment to keeping residents informed of the activities of the Schodack Town Board. All meetings of the Town Board, Planning Board, and Zoning Board can be viewed live or at a later date at https://townhallstreams.com/towns/schodack.
In addition to the regularly scheduled board meetings in October, the Town Board held a series of Budget Meetings to review and discuss the 2020 Tentative Budget for the Town of Schodack. Department heads did a great job of outlining and itemizing their recommended expenditures and appropriations for the upcoming year.
During October, the Town Board also approved a resolution requesting the New York State Department of Transportation to conduct traffic safety studies for evaluation of appropriate speed limits on Clove Road and in the following developments: Strawberry Fields, Castleridge and Maple Crest. I personally have been contacted by numerous residents regarding people speeding through other neighborhoods in our town as well. Schodack Police Chief Joseph Belardo would like to get the message out to residents that the best way to handle these and other traffic-related complaints is to contact our Schodack Police Department and file a report. These reports aid the department with scheduling their daily assignments as well as monitoring the results of their work.
Thank you to the numerous volunteers who worked on the Reformed Dutch Church of Schodack at Muitzeskill annual Turkey Dinner. It was nice to see such a large turnout of residents enjoying a terrific family-style meal. There was a great turnout for the 1st Annual Windy Hill Orchard Apple Festival. Visitors were treated to craft and food vendors, musical entertainment, apple and pumpkin picking, Fort Orange Brewing beers, wine and cider tastings, and wagon rides through the corn maze.
