New year, new fees

Niskayuna outlines lawn debris fees, alarm systems fees approved

— The town code addition for lawn debris pick up fees applies to every resident or property owner, which holds an annual charge of $30 for collecting grass clippings, trees, branches, shrubbery, leaves, underbrush and pruning waste, which is put into containers and bags or bundled along the curbside.

Residents can apply to have the fee waived, though only if they’re not planning on using the service provided by the town. Each resident wishing to wave the fee would have to file a notice with the town clerk prior to March 15 every year.

Enforcement, which previously was questioned by fellow board members, was outlined too. The code enforcement officer is granted the authority to serve as an ordinance enforcement officer, who could issue summons to town court for violations.
