Tree Law Amendments Meeting

Did you know that there were over 700 trees removed from private property in Scarsdale in 2017, mostly in association with single family home renovations, additions, and new construction? A collaborative effort involving the Conservation Advisory Council, Friends of Scarsdale Parks, Village Staff, and others has been underway to develop proposed Tree Law amendments to achieve greater tree canopy protection and mandate enhanced mitigation measures when trees must be removed. Please attend the next public meeting to learn more!

No, it isn't the latest spin on a mojito, it's a new 100% gluten-free, paleo-friendly, MedMex kitchen offering locally sourced proteins in a family-friendly atmosphere located in the Village Center at 46 Christie Place. Always on the move, Scarsdale Official dropped in last night for some on-the-go bites and was impressed with the range of menu choices, as well as the tasty mezcal chicken tacos and hand-crafted guacamole that comprised dinner. Stop-in to PopoJito, enjoy, and spread the word: Scarsdale's Village Center is bursting with flavors.

Squirrely About Your Pumpkin?

So, the trick-or-treaters have gone, wildlife have likely capitalized on your unintended offering of food, and you're left with some semblance of Halloween artistry. Yes, the scary smile that is slowly drooping into a frown is telling you it's finally time to part ways. But how? Well, since the 2017 World Punkin Chunkin Championship was canceled, that's no longer an option; incidentally, we also prohibit launching pumpkins over neighboring property rooftops. Sanitation makes it easy: Place it with your leaves for Village pick-up. Bye, pumpkin!

Lawn Irrigation, Pools, and Leaks

The top three contributors to high residential water bills are lawn irrigation, pools, and leaks. If you recently received your bill for summer water usage, you may be feeling the water bill blues. To break the cycle, the Water Department encourages all  water users to review our Water Conservation Tips and plan ahead of time to minimize water consumption. Our competitive water rate information is available online, and water revenues are only used for water-related expenses, including critical infrastructure maintenance and replacement.
