Within the Village of Newark, there are 10 parks for residents to enjoy. These parks are well maintained by the DPW and are located at every corner of the Village. The Department further maintains both the Erie Canal area and trails.
The Department of Public Works plows Village sidewalks as a courtesy. They clear the "school route" first, then expand out if time permits. However, according to the Village Code, the property owner is responsible for cleaning the sidewalk.
The Village provides a Hazardous Sidewalk Replacement Program to encourage property owners to replace section of hazardous side walk by funding 50% of the cost of replacement at a pre-determined maximum price per block. A Village inspection must be completed prior to the sidewalks being replaced in order to qualify for the funding. Please use the contact information above to schedule a sidewalk inspection.
Brush and Leaf Pickup
The Village picks up brush in the spring and fall. This includes tree limbs (up to 6 inch diameter), leaves, grass, clippings and shrub trimmings; but will not pick up dirt, boards, logs, cardboard, furniture, paper or metal items. Residents are required to place the debris at the curb, not in the road. There is an area at the Operations Center on Wood Lane designated for residents to drop off brush after working hours and weekends.
