Village Treasurer – The Village of Port Henry is seeking a qualified individual with a minimum of an Associate's Degree in Accounting /Business Administration or equivalent accounting experience. Governmental accounting knowledge preferred. Position is full time, 30 hours per week and open to residents of Essex County. Benefit and retirement package available. Please submit application with resume to: Village of Port Henry, 4303 Main Street, Port Henry, NY 12974 by May 20, 2013.
The Village of Port Henry has formed a Zoning Commission, to study the benefits of zoning for the Village.
The original plan was to create a "Commercial-Retail" zone on Main Street and part of Broad, that would restrict the conversion of existing street-level business space to residential space. NY law, however, does not allow the Village to establish a zone in just one portion of the Village; the entire Village (or none of the Village) must be subject to zoning regulations. Thus, a minimum of two zones would exist: the "Commercial-Retail" and "Residential" (or "everything else"). More zones are possible, such as "Industrial".
We are asking the residents and property owners of the Village to help define the zone(s) and help with suggested "Allowed" or "Not Allowed" uses that could exist within a given zone. A meeting will be held May 22nd, 7:00 PM, (agenda) at the Village Hall, for public comment. We need your participation.
Examples of possible zones, uses, and restrictions:
Can you help with restoring the Campground's flower beds? We lost our plants during tropical storm Irene, and are now replanting. Additional sun perennials that will tolerate a sandy soil would be appreciated. If you have some to donate, please leave a message for Matt (570-6644), or the Village Office (546-9933), or contact the Campground manager directly: Joanna, at 546-7123 or (518) 260-2671.
Garbage should be on the curb before 7:00 AM on Monday mornings, in nothing larger than a 32-gallon bag, weighing not more than 30 pounds, with a Moriah Transfer Station sticker attached where it can be clearly seen. If a bag of garbage weighs more than 30 pounds, a note will be left indicating so and it will not be picked up for disposal.
The Port Henry Village Board has reminded all dog owners that cleaning up after a dog is required by Local Law No. 2 of 2009 (Regulation of Dogs in the Village). There are two disposal stations located in the Village of Port Henry for convenience in adhering to this local law. Any pet owner found to be in violation of Local Law No. 2 of 2009 will be fined accordingly.
