Sidewalk Repair and Maintenance (§ 218-8 — § 218-11) excerpt from Village Code:

§ 218-8 Responsibility of owners and occupants.

A.  The owners and occupants of properties adjoining sidewalks commonly used by the public in the Village of Brewster shall keep such sidewalks in repair and free and completely clear of snow, ice, dirt, and other obstructions. With respect to the clearing of snow and ice removal, such must be removed within 24 hours after the period in which such snow or ice has accumulated.   All other repairs and maintenance shall be performed within a reasonable time period.

§ 218-10 Enforcement.

This article shall be enforceable by the Village of Brewster Highway Superintendent and Code Enforcement Officer, and/or Village Police, who are hereby authorized to issue and serve an appearance ticket with respect to violation(s) of this article.

In addition to a violation and potential penalty, the Village will clear the sidewalk and charge the property owner for the cost of the snow/ice removal.  Unpaid balances will be relevied on your taxes.


Brush and Leaf Pick Up by Village Department of Public Works


The Village of Brewster Department of Public Works will be going through the Village on a weekly basis to collect unwanted leaves and brush. Hedge and tree trimmings should be tied in bundles no larger than three feet in length and 16 inches in diameter. Leaves that need to be picked up must be loose on the edge of the street but off of the sidewalk. Leaves will only be cleaned up if they are on the side of the street. After November 30th of each year, grass clippings and leaves shall be placed in open plastic containers or paper bags for collection. Do not intermingle grass clippings and leaves with other debris such as rocks, wood, metal, hard plastics, tree branches of any size, etc. This will damage the vacuum that cleans up the leaves and will delay collections. Wet leaves will not be collected. Tree stumps will not be collected.

Please review the Village Code: Chapter 205: Solid Waste for more information.
