DEC Reminds New Yorkers That Residential Brush Burning is Prohibited Through May 14
The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) reminds New Yorkers that residential brush burning in towns with less than 20,000 residents is prohibited from March 16 through May 14.
DEC posts a fire danger rating forecast map on a daily basis on DEC's website.
The DEC also urges citizens to employ alternatives to burning brush, like chipping wood and downed branches for use as mulch and composting yard waste, leaves and plant clippings for use in gardens.
Campfires using charcoal or untreated wood are allowed, but people should never leave fires unattended and must completely extinguish them before leaving the area. Burning garbage or leaves is prohibited year-round.
Violators of the open burning state regulation are subject to both criminal and civil enforcement actions, with a minimum fine of $500 for a first offense. To report environmental law violations call 1-800-TIPP DEC (1-800-847-7332), or report online on DEC's website.

Town of Ovid Dog Enumeration
September 1, 2015 thru December 31, 2015
Did you know?
Did you know that New York State Law requires all dogs older than 4 months to be licensed? Licensing ensures that all dogs have been properly vaccinated against rabies for the protection of both you and your neighbors. The license also makes it much easier to locate the owner of a lost dog when he or she is found. Any dog living with you for more than 30 days must be licensed.
Why is the Town conducting an enumeration?
EDUCATION. Lots of people are simply not aware that they’re required to license their dogs.
We are conducting a dog enumeration to determine more accurately how many dogs are harbored in the Town of Ovid.
How can you license your dog?
It’s simple. You’ll find a license form on the bottom of this add. Follow the directions included on the form and either mail it back to us or drop it off in person. We’ll send you a license and dog tag, and every year we’ll mail you a letter reminding you to renew the license. If you have more than one dog, either make a copy of the form for each dog you own or call us and we’ll be happy to mail you the number you need. Alternatively, you can simply write the information down on a separate piece of paper.
If you have any questions, please call the Town Clerk’s office at 869-3907
