Streets + Sidewalks
Sidewalk snow removal policy:
It’s property owners’ responsibility to keep sidewalks clear of ice and snow during the winter season. If snow is not removed within 24 hours of the end of the storm, the Village Highway Department will remove snow at a cost of $2.00 per linear foot charged to the property owner. We ask you not to shovel snow into the roadways. https://ecode360.com/15547425
Sidewalk maintenance is the responsibility of the property owner, hazards and obstructions, such as excessive weeds or debris should be removed in order to keep a safe and accessible public right-of-way.
No person shall obstruct any public street in any manner without first securing permission from the Mayor. https://ecode360.com/15547426
Annual Street Sweeping
Annual street cleaning takes place in early May. Please sweep sidewalk/lawn edge sand into the street. Please do not push sand into piles, the street sweeper is not designed for mounds of materials.
Report a pothole or public hazard:
On Red Hook Village Streets: Call Red Hook Highway Department, (845) 758-8600
On NY State Highways (NY-199 & U.S. 9) https://www.dot.ny.gov/programs/pothole-rpt File a claim NY State for damage to your vehicle from a pothole during May 2 - November 14. New York State Department of Transportation will not reimburse drivers who experience a close encounter with a pothole during so-called “pothole season.” That runs from November 15 to May 1, when cold weather makes potholes far more likely. Even if your pothole interaction occurred out of season, New York state limits the amount of damage payable to just $5,000.
Emergency Danger (Downed wire, road obstruction, Wildlife or Pet Injured): Call 9-11
Report unsafe sidewalk, damaged lamp post or public hazard: Building/ Zoning Department
