moment to read and adhere to the policy to make the clean up run smoothly.
The Village crews will be
starting their leaf pick up on November 10, 2014, weather permitting. If you
have leaves you need to dispose of prior to our pick up, please place them in
containers for the trash pick up or use them as compost (see below).
When our crew does start the
clean up, please remember to place only
leaves (no limbs, no bags of leaves or other debris) AT the curb,NOTIN
THE STREET. IF YOU HAVE ANY BRANCHES, PLEASE PLACE THEM
AT THE CURB IN A SEPARATE PILE AWAY FROM THE LEAVES. They will perform one
entire pass of all the streets in the village. If there is no snow fall, they will
try to do spot clean up of leaves as needed. When the snow starts, all leaf
clean up will stop and the rest of the leaves will have to be either set out in
containers for the trash pick up or composted.
note:It is prohibited
by law to place leaves or snow in the road or town right of way. (Vehicle and
Traffic Law 1219 and 1220 sub A). 1219A – Putting glass or other injurious substance on
highway is prohibited. No person shall throw or deposit upon any highway any
glass bottle, glass, nails, tacks, wire, cans, SNOW or any other substance
likely to injure any person, animal, or vehicle upon such highway. 1220A – Throwing refuse on highways and adjacent lands
is prohibited. No person shall throw, dump, deposit or place or cause to be
thrown, dumped, deposited or placed upon any highway, or with the limits of the
right of such highway, or upon private lands adjacent thereto, any refuse,
trash, garbage, rubbish, litter or any nauseous or offensive matter.
just sweep leaves and grass clippings into the street. Not
only is it prohibited but, leaves and grass clippings wash into storm sewer
drains, reducing the quality of nearby lakes and rivers. Fish populations
suffer when algae, feeding on leaves and nitrogen-rich grass clippings, consume
the oxygen they need to survive. Grass also carries
pesticides which harm fish. An option you can consider is creating a household
compost bin that will turn yard waste into valuable fertilizer and rich potting
soil. (Or, you can bag your yard clippings for pickup by your Orleans County
trash collection service, or place with no bag AT the curb for our annual leaf pick-up. (SEE Above) For any questions call 585-798-1790

1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina
In pursuit of
our revival of the 1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina, the Orleans
Renaissance Group commissioned a professionally produced promotional
It depicts a
grandmother figure, Helen Zelazny of Medina, who, having celebrated her wedding
at the Opera House in 1951, finds herself rediscovering the space where she
spent one of the most important days of her life. Making this video was special
to Helen, as she would have celebrated her 60th anniversary this year, but for
her husband's recent passing. Original photos of her actual wedding at the
Opera House are featured in the video.
The video was produced by Andrew
Manzano, a Rochester-area film maker.
The story is compelling, the
imagery and music beautiful, and the overall effort a work of art. This video
highlights not just our vision for rebirth of the building, but also our focus
on promoting the arts and media in all its forms, every step of the way. I hope
you enjoy it, and please share!
This short film featuring the
Greycliffe String Quartet shows the emotional connection that we can establish
with the places where the cherished moments of our lives unfold. The grandmother
in the story actually had her wedding reception in Bent's Hall, in Medina, NY,
sixty years ago. We see in this short journey the rich history of this treasured
structure intertwined with the magic that this place can hold for the coming
