COVID-19 Vaccine Scam Alert

  • You likely will not need to pay anything out of pocket to get the vaccine during the public health emergency.
  • You cannot pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
  • You cannot pay to get early access to the vaccine.
  • No one from Medicare or the Health Department will contact you.
  • No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care payer, like a private insurance company, will call you asking for your Social Security number or  your credit card or bank account information to sign you up to get the vaccine.
  • Beware of providers offering other products, treatments, or medicines to prevent the virus. Check with your health care provider before paying for or receiving any COVID-19 related treatment.
  • If you get a call, text, email-or even someone knocking on your door-claiming they can get you early access to the vaccine, STOP. That’s a scam.

Light up the Village!

That’s the cry in the Village of Baldwinsville. Thanksgiving and Christmas-two heavy fan favorites-may look different for many of our residents this year. Travel maybe limited. Group gatherings are questionable. So we want the holidays around here to be something special. Lighting up houses, tress and businesses.

If you already light up your home/yard, great. Maybe add a string of lights or another lawn ornament. If you don’t usually do much decorating, this would be a good season to give it a shot. The Village is putting up lights on poles around the Village. And we will have a Christmas tree in the square, as is tradition. And hopefully our businesses will add a little flair.

Our traditional tree lighting would have been on November 28th. That’s a good weekend to target getting the decorations in place. Then, our residents can ride around the Village and get some festive feelings. We will have a spot on the Village’s Facebook page, where people can list addresses that are a can’t miss for those out taking in the lights.

Maybe we can make this part of a rough 2020, a little easier to handle

Mayor Dick Clarke

Ash Trees Program

Village residents may or may not be aware of an invasive species that attacks ash trees. The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that infects and ultimately kills ash trees. Unfortunately, we have quite a few ash trees along our village streets and in our parks. Over the next two years we will embark on a program to remove these trees. Unfortunately, this will result in a substantial loss of tree canopy along some streets and in both Community Park and Mercer Park. New trees will be planted as infected trees are removed. If you have any questions regarding dead or dying street trees at your home, please feel free to contact our Village Engineering office at 315-635-9665.
