Tompkins County is using SwiftReach’s mass notification system to alert county residents during public safety emergencies.  The Village of Dryden will use the system to send Village residents non-emergency notifications, such as water main information, road paving, road closures dues to accidents.  Landlines (home phones) are automatically uploaded, but if you would like to register your cell phones or email addresses for notifications, please contact the Village Clerk (villageclerk@dryden-ny.org, 844-8122) for a form to fill out and return.

Proposal by some Village of Dryden Residents to Allow Chickens in the Village

The Village of Freeville and the Village of Trumansburg have had their chicken laws for a number of years and have not experienced any complaints.  Bard Prentice, on behalf of those wanting chickens, has modified the Village of Freeville law for your consideration.   See the attachment below.

The Dryden Village Board is very interested in your thoughts regarding chickens in the Village; in mid-May you should receive a questionnaire and survey.  Please respond.
