New Year’s Eve Millbrook - Every Other Year
With the generous support of the Community, the Millbrook Rotary Club has presented the premiere New Year's Eve family event in Dutchess County, New Year’s Eve Millbrook, for the past 13 years. At this time, the Club plans to make the event an every-other-year celebration. Therefore, we will not be hosting New Year’s Eve Millbrook in 2017, but hope to be back for 2018.
Millbrook Rotary welcomes local citizens who want to help support the community. The club meets at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesdays at Maura’s Kitchen on Alden Place in Millbrook. Guests are welcome (lunch is $15). Informative talks at most lunches usually begin after lunch at 12:45 p.m. and conclude at 1:15 p.m. For further information, including exact schedules and the subjects of programs, visit MillbrookRotary.org.

Our annual leaf pickup program is underway from October 1st and will run until December 1st. Residents are asked to place leaves curbside in wind rows for collection.

Brush Pick Up is provided from April 1st and continues through June 1st.
Brush will not be picked up during the summer months-so please plan accordingly!
Clippings are never eligible for curbside pick up. During storms these materials find their way to catch basins and may cause backups in our system. Please place brush curbside and do not mix in leaves or grass clippings. Compost yard waste or bring it to the Town of Washington Transfer Station for disposal. Transfer Station Passes:$45/year for Senior Citizens, $75/year, $35 for one day pass. Tickets may be purchased at the Town of Washington Hall located at 10 Reservoir Drive.

FLUSHING FIRE HYDRANTS
Millbrook will be Flushing Fire Hydrants throughout the Village Mid May. Flushing is essential for pipe maintenance. However, it is common to experience turbidity (cloudy water) following the procedure. Run your faucets for a few moments to clear silt from your lines and check your washing machine and shower before using. Any questions please call the system operators VRI Environmental Services, Inc at 845-677-3839. The Village website calendar and marquee will have specific dates posted when available (www.villageofmillbrookny.com).
CLEAN UP AFTER DOGS!
Pet owners must clean up after their dogs!
Animal waste is a health hazard and unwelcome upon our sidewalks. In an effort to assist residents, the Village has installed two dog waster stations; one at the Thorne Building and one on Merritt Avenue across from the Village Hall. Stations are also located in the park. We hope you take full advantage of these facilities.
Our studies have determined that the most common and easily corrected source of clean water (I & I) making its way to our sanitary system is homeowner's use of sump pumps. Pumping basements to the wastewater treatment plant puts an undue stress on our operation. This practice is prohibited under our code. Village officials will be conducting inspections so please remove any sumps from the sanitary system.
