Veterans Memorial Park Update
February 07, 2020

Veterans Memorial Park Update

Dear Otisville Residents and Visitors to the Veterans Memorial Park,

Although Village policy for the past several years has been to close the Veterans Park during the winter, we want you to know that we hear you. We are glad to know that we have so many residents and visitors to our park who love our park and want to take advantage of it year-round.

At this time, we are amending our policy regarding the Seasonal operation of the Veterans Memorial Park.

Our park will remain open year-round, Weather Permitting. 

The safety of our residents and visitors to our park is of the utmost importance to us, therefor the park may be closed for periods of time when snow, ice, or any other conditions are present which the DPW Superintendent, or Parks Commissioner deem unsafe.

Please take note:  In order to preserve the integrity of the packed stone material on our walking trail, the trail will not be plowed.  Anyone who chooses to walk on the trail if snow and ice are present will be doing so at their own risk.

We will do our best to update the homepage of our website on days when the Park is unavailable.

Thank you.


Mayor Brian Wona and The Village of Otisville Board of Trustees

Correction to Spring News Letter
April 04, 2019

CORRECTION to an article in the March issue of the Village Update

regarding changes to NYS Law governing smoke detectors:

In the March issue of the Village Update we mistakenly reported that, “Many residents will need to upgrade their smoke detectors very soon.”  We apologize that this information was unintentionally misleading, as the smoke detectors do not have to be upgraded immediately.

A new law did become effective April 1st, 2019, requiring that all new or replacement smoke detectors in New York State be powered by a 10-year, sealed, non-removable battery or hardwired to the home. According to 399-ccc: “It shall be unlawful for any person or entity to distribute, sell, offer for sale, or import any battery operated smoke detecting alarm device powered by a replaceable or removable battery not capable of powering such device for a minimum of ten years.”  The law does not require residents to immediately replace their old 9V battery operated detectors.  You may continue to use the old style alarms for their “useful life”. However, when it does become necessary to replace them, you will need to do so with a ten year, sealed and non-removable battery or have hardwired detectors installed.

Please note that the misleading sentenced was not written in that form by the Building Inspector but was re-worded during the editing process.

We apologize for any concern or confusion this may have caused.
