May 2017 updates

Camillus Farmers Market – The Town of Camillus is pleased to announce the Greater Camillus Community Farmers Market will start on Tuesday June 6.

The market will take place every Tuesday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and will feature a variety of vendors offering organic poultry and eggs, seasonal produce, homemade fruit pies, artisan breads, plants, wine, maple products, baked desserts, bagels, soaps, candles and more. Each week will feature food vendors with barbeque and more!

Trash Pick up – In an effort to keep our neighborhoods clean, please remember the following:

  • Any items not placed in the trash totes will not be collected. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove any uncollected items from the curb. Town Law states residents “shall remove any uncollected items from the curb as soon as the hauler has refused collection and, in any event, by 6PM on the designated collection day.
  • Please call Dependable Disposal at (315)472-7455 to arrange the pick up of couches, chairs tables or other larger items.
  • Camillus Landfill is open for business and will take many items that Dependable might not. Visit for hours of operation and a list of what may be dropped off.

There have been a number of items stolen from cars in Camillus lately. Chief Winn would like to remind everyone that it is important to try to prevent this from happening to you. Most are crimes of opportunity through unlocked doors or open windows. Large parking locations like shopping centers, housing communities, parks and schools are prime targets for a thief because multiple vehicles can be hit in a short time frame. Remove all items from your vehicles at night, roll up windows and lock the doors. Also use a garage or secure location when possible, or park in well-lit areas.

Fireworks – On Saturday June 24th the town of Camillus Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting their annual 4th of July celebration at Veterans Memorial Park at Gillie Lake. There will be a band starting at 7:30 and fireworks will begin at the conclusion.

Concerts at the Municipal Building – For a nice fun summer evening please visit the summer concert series at Town Hall on Wednesday evenings. The concerts are free to attend and free popcorn and lemonade are provided. Concerts start at 7Pm and end at 9PM. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket. The lineup and dates are as follows: July 5 ECHO (50’s – 80’s Classic), July 12 O’Ryon (Folk, Blues, Classic Rock and Originals), July 19 Flyin’ Column (Irish), July 26 The Horn Dogs (Mixed Party and Dance) and August 2 The DeSantis Band (Classics).

New Development – John Szczech has proposed a development called Rolling Meadows on Scenic Road. The development will consist of 102 single family homes using 91 acres of property. The project will have four phases, with phase 1 starting this year. The plan requires that a new water tower be built to service the upper portion of the development.   The cost of the water tower will be paid entirely by the residents of this development. The water tower may also help some of the water pressure problems in surrounding developments. The only entrance and exit will be off of Scenic Drive. There were two Public Hearings held where residents were able to ask any questions they may have had. Both went well and as far as I know most concerns were addressed by the developer.
