FLUSHABLE WIPES It has come to our attention that many people are using flushable wipes. These wipes, although stated to be flushable, are NOT safe to be flushed into the sewer system. They do not break down appropriately and could cause damage to our pumps. The DPW department is asking all residents to please refrain from flushing any flushable wipes down your toilets.
ONLINE WATER/SEWER PAYMENTS We are now accepting credit cards as a form of payment for water/sewer bills. You can pay with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or Debit card in the Village office, over the phone or online on this website. You can find more information or make a payment under the WATER & SEWER section above.
AMBULANCE SERVICES The Town of Brownville, with the cooperation from the Villages of Brownville, Dexter and Glen Park contracted with Guilfoyle Ambulance Service, Inc. to provide ambulance service on a 24/7 basis. Guilfoyle will bill your private insurance carrier, Medicare or Medicaid for their services. You will be required to provide Guilfoyle personnel with your insurance information when requested. You should not receive any bill for this service.
ANNUAL BURN BAN The annual state ban on outdoor burning begins March 16 and extends through May 14. Burning is prohibited in towns with more than 20,000 residents, and all villages and cities because fire smoke is unhealthy to breathe and annoys your best neighbors. Smoke is hazardous because it contains particulates, known as soot, and gases, such as carbon monoxide. Soot can injure children, pets, elderly people, and anyone with lung or heart disease - and fine soot produced by fires is especially harmful. Even when the burn ban is not in effect, it is illegal to burn household garbage and leaves. Minor exceptions to the Statewide ban include:
outdoor cooking devices, when used to cook food;
small cooking or camp fires using untreated wood or charcoal; and
small fires used to dispose of a flag or religious item or for a religious ceremony, where permitted.
