2/21/14 The Town of Lyme is pleased to announce the completion of a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS). Working in concert with six other Jefferson County communities, Lyme contracted with the Development Authority of the North Country to map infrastructure in the Town’s water districts. These maps are accessible through an internet-based GIS which facilitates efficient access to information on critical water infrastructure serving 250 Town users. In addition to water infrastructure, the GIS contains aerial imagery and parcel data for areas of the Town not served by water. The Town of Lyme has made the GIS open to the public. Users can access the system by visiting the Development Authority of the North Country’s website and clicking on the ‘Launch DANC GIS Application’ button on the top of the webpage. 1/8/14 Due
to financial and time limitations, the town board regrets to inform its
residents that the town highway department will not be picking up
brush, trees, limbs or debris that resulted from the recent ice storm.
We have been informed that FEMA funding and additional resources will
not be available. Residents will be allowed to take brush to the
transfer site, as is our usual offered services. The board requests
that any residents who hire contractors, or have non-town residents haul
brush to the transfer site, to please call the transfer site to inform
the employees of the name of the person doing the cleanup for them and
also call when they have finished. We thank the town residents, in
advance, for their understanding and cooperation.
The Town of Lyme is located in Jefferson County, New York. The western side of our town is defined by beautiful Lake Ontario.
Transfer Site Changes Changes are underway at the town transfer site in how we handle recyclables. In a cost savings measure, the town has contracted with the County for the pickup of recyclables. County requirements are very strict in the enforcement of sorting and separating recyclables. Dumpsters have been supplied for plastics, corrugated cardboard, soft cardboard, glass, paper and tin cans. Transfer site employees will no longer be handling recyclables inside the building. Residents are asked to comply with the new requirements and exhibit patience and understanding while we work to operate similarly to many other town transfer sites in the county.
