Village of Medina
Medina children, limited to the ages of 12 and under, will be able to trick-or-treat from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM on Halloween, Friday, Oct. 31. Only homes with their outdoor lights on are to be visited for trick-or-treats. Those residents wishing to participate in this event are asked to have their porch lights on at 5:30 PM to indicate participation.
The schedule for leaf pick up and the policy for leaf pick up are included with this notice. Please take a 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, NOT IN 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.
Don't 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.

In pursuit of our revival of the 1865 Bent's Opera House in downtown Medina, the Orleans Renaissance Group commissioned a professionally produced promotional 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!
