The Town Board is seeking town residents to serve on an advisory sub-committee that will work on drafting recommendations for changes to the Short Term Rental Unit proposal. Applicants should apply at the Town Office between the hours of 9-4 pm on Monday through Friday.
FOR TOWN OF LYME RESIDENTS ONLY. IF YOU ARE FROM ANOTHER TOWN, YOUR MUNICIPALITY WILL HAVE THEIR OWN SUPPLY.
Sandbags are available at the NYS Rte 12E sand barn facility. Elderly and disabled residents who cannot get someone to help them, can contact Supervisor Aubertine for requests to have sandbags placed at their homes and he will contact the appropriate agency. An assessment of your property will be made, and if deemed a property of concern, will be added to the list. The list, like the lake, is growing quickly and if your property is added as a property of concern, it may still be some time until we can get to you. If possible, you may want to consider hiring someone to get the sandbags and stack them for you before the lake water crests. The Supervisor's telephone number is 315-767-8814.
The Town of Lyme has coordinated with the Office of Homeland Security, NYS DOT and Jefferson County Emergency Management Office in making arrangements for Town of Lyme residents to get sandbags to protect their property from the expected high waters in Lake Ontario.
The Town of Lyme Highway Department will be getting the sandbags from the NYS DOT Sandbag Facility and storing them at our NYS Rte. 12E storage area next to the new Salt Barn. Town of Lyme residents will be allowed to pick up filled sandbags at that location. We ask that you only take what you need and remember there will be others who will need them as well.
There is a proper way to pile sandbags. Please watch the videos below.
