Russell Street Is Now One Way
At the December 3, 2012 Village Board meeting, the Board passed a Local Law making Russell
Street one way in the direction of Partition Street to Washington Avenue.
This was done after two
Public Hearings and dialogue with Russell Street residents.
The Village Department of Public Works installed the one way signs on Tuesday, January 29th.
So, "heads up" . . . don't get caught going the wrong way down this narrow street!
Saturday Library Hours Extended in 2013
For 2013, the Saugerties Public Library is extending its hours on Saturdays.
In 2012, the Saturday hours were 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In 2013, the Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Come enjoy this amazing library and find out about all the resources you have at your disposal!
Lawful Snow Shovelling
Take a lesson from this guy on the left. When the snow falls and as you shovel or snowblow your walks and driveways this coming Winter, please do not throw snow into Village Streets when plowing or shoveling.
Besides being dangerous for vehicles, it is
against Villlage law to do so.
We appreciate your cooperation on this point.

Spring has sprung nice and early in Saugerties . . . and
people are out making their yards and houses look great. There aren't many
Towns or Villages that can point to as many beautiful neighborhoods as we have.
It's a real Springtime treat to simply walk around the Village and see the
beautiful trees, gardens and houses of Finger Street, Washington Avenue, Market
Street, my own Sawyerkill Terrace, and the list goes on and on.
It's clear that the vast majority of people living in
Saugerties truly take pride in the appearance of their properties. And for
those situations that are (very fortunately) the rare exception, we have very
capable Village employees like Eyal Saad, our Code Enforcement Officer, who
take care of property maintenance violations.
I would like to personally recognize all the collective
energy and hard work that goes into making your part of our Saugerties
landscape look its best. Thanks, everyone!
