Drilling Work at 1050 Pleasantville Road – February 8th & 9th.
We wish to inform you that on February 8th and 9th, starting from 8:00 AM, our Village contractors will be conducting geotechnical investigations through test borings (drilling) at the former Wells Fargo site, located at 1050 Pleasantville Road, directly opposite the Village Hall.
What to Expect:
During the hours of operation from 8:00 AM to approximately 4:00 PM, there will be a noticeable loud ping/ring noise emanating from the site. We understand that this may cause some inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we undertake this essential work. The parking lot will be closed during this time.
Purpose of the Drilling:
This drilling is a critical step in our ongoing evaluation of the site, which includes gaining a comprehensive understanding of the subsurface conditions. The insights gained from this investigation will inform next steps for the future of this site.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Slow The Flow of Rainwater And Soak It In!
Rain that falls on roofs and driveways collects quickly and runs off to the nearest storm drain or ditch. This storm water runoff can lead to flooding, stream channel damage and water quality problems. Here are some helpful tips to soak in the rain around your home:
- Disconnect/Redirect Downspouts – Disconnecting downspouts from footing drains or storm drains and re-directing that water to your landscape decreases the amount of polluted runoff.
- Use a Rain Barrell – Rain barrels capture water from your roof and can hold it to irrigate your lawn and garden. That’s free water for your use in your landscape!
- Plant a Rain Garden - Rain gardens are landscaped depressions that capture and filter rainwater runoff. Their deep, compost-amended soils help slow down and soak up polluted water from downspouts and driveways.
- Plant Trees - Preserve existing trees and plant new ones in your yard. Trees and plants do a good job of absorbing and evaporating rainfall, slowing runoff.
- Install Permeable Pavement – Permeable pavement allows the rain to soak through patios, walkways or driveways and filter into the ground, instead of rushing to the nearest waterway.
- Install a Green Roof – Green roofs have a layer of plant material that absorbs water like a sponge. They capture water when it rains and slows roof runoff. Green roofs can also help reduce building energy usage and noise levels while increasing the durability and lifespan of the roof.
As a reminder, commuters who have a Scarborough Station parking permit cannot park at the spots designated for Pango. The spaces are indicated with signage and painted orange to match the branding of the app used to further indicate which spaces are Pango. Tickets will be issued to those who are using their permit to park at these spots.

Clothes Dryer Safety Tips.
The Fire Chief would like to share some safety tips regarding your clothes dryer. Doing laundry is most likely part of your everyday routine. But did you know how important taking care of your clothes dryer is to the safety of your home? With a few simple safety tips you can help prevent a clothes dryer fire.
- Have your dryer installed and serviced by a professional.
- Do not use the dryer without a lint filter.
- Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry. Remove lint that has collected around the drum.
- Rigid or flexible metal venting material should be used to sustain proper air flow and drying time.
- Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and the outdoor vent flap will open when the dryer is operating. Once a year, or more often if you notice that it is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, clean lint out of the vent pipe or have a dryer lint removal service do it for you.
- Keep dryers in good working order. Gas dryers should be inspected by a qualified professional to make sure that the gas line and connection are intact and free of leaks.
- Make sure the right plug and outlet are used and that the machine is connected properly.
- Follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions and don’t overload your dryer.
- Turn the dryer off if you leave home or when you go to bed.
