Welcome to VoNP
The primary responsibility of the Village of New Paltz Department of Public Works (DPW) is to maintain the safety, efficiency and overall quality of our community's public infrastructure.
The duties of the DPW include street maintenance, snow plowing, street sweeping, sanding, water and sewer services, groundskeeping and a variety of other tasks. We take great pride in maintaining our equipment to ensure many years of service.
The DPW has summer projects and temporary seasonal employment opportunities available for local youths. The DPW also works with a number of municipal Committees and Commissions, as well as community groups, including the Shade Tree Commission, Environmental Conservation Commission, Global Warming Task Force, Community Improvement Team, Huguenot Historical Society, Fire Department, Police Department, Town of New Paltz Highway Department and the Parks Committee.
We strive to meet the needs of the community quickly, efficiently and always with courtesy. We currently have ten employees and are on call for emergencies to guarantee timely and effective solutions as problems arise in the Village of New Paltz.

Spring Clean Up
Each spring, the DPW offers a comprehensive program to help residents dispose of various forms of waste in a safe, ecologically friendly manner. Yard waste, such as brush and wood, in biodegradable bags (which can be purchased at Village Hall) will be collected along with small appliances, batteries and other assorted items.
The 2012 Spring Cleanup will take place during the weeks of April 9-13 and 16-20. For specific items and limits, please look for a public notice in the coming weeks.
Please call the DPW at 845.255.1980 between 7:00am and 3:30pm for problems with your water and sewer or to schedule a final read of your water meter.

Also within the DPW’s range of duties is the general maintenance of public parks in New Paltz. It is our responsibility to keep our community’s parks as clean and as enjoyable as possible, with scheduled cleanups every Monday and Friday. We are committed to preserving the beauty and accessibility of our invaluable public spaces.
Leaky toilets, faucets and pipes cause needless waste of water, and if not addressed can end up costing residents in several ways. Wasted water adds up on water and sewer bills, but also in tax funded services both providing the water it in the first place and treating it at the waste water plant.
Please help us eliminate waste and avoid extra pumping costs by regularly checking for leaks. If a leak is suspected in your home, there will be an indication of it on your quarterly water and sewer bill.
For questions regarding your billing, please contact Roseann James, Village Deputy Treasurer at 845.255.0130 x. 20.
Storm Water Management
The Village of New Paltz asks everyone to help eliminate unnecessary and harmful liquids and materials, such as fertilizers, pesticides, soaps, and sands, from being washed into the streets and into the storm sewers. This will help to protect the Wallkill River, as well as the fish, animals and vegetation that depend on this valuable habitat.
The Village of New Paltz has no routine application of pesticides in the maintenance of its buildings and grounds. These dangerous chemicals are a hazard to our environment and our employees. Parks are pesticide-free for the safety of children and animals. For more information on pesticides and how you can have a pesticide-free home, please visit the Grassroots Healthy Lawn Program.
