Government Center Holiday Closings -
Trash and Recycling Collection Will Not Be Affected.
The Swansea Government Center and all non-emergency services of
the Village will be closed on  Monday, February 20th in observation of Presidents' Day.
The Village Committee and Board meetings normally scheduled to be held on that Monday, will be shifted to Tuesday, February 21st, beginning at 6:00 p.m.. The holiday will not affect trash and recycling collection.
Republic Services will still make collections on Feb 20th.
Village to Pass Credit Card Fees on to Users starting December 1, 2016....For the convenience of residents, several years ago the Village of Swansea instituted a system for accepting credit cards, debit cards and on-line check processing for the payment of utility bills, purchase of trash stickers, and other financial transactions. But each such transaction includes the payment of a convenience fee to the entity that processes those transactions on behalf of the Village. Since its inception, those fee have been absorbed by the Village. Yet the annual cost has grown to over $27,000.00 in the last 12 months.
In essence, under this approach, all residents end up subsidizing that cost on behalf of the residents who actually use the option. In light of tightening budget constraints, the Village Board therefore adopted a resolution on Oct 17th that will now require the individuals using the convenience of those payment methods to pay the associated fees. While the Village receives none of that fee, the change will free up the $27,000.00 for other budget needs.
In the future anyone paying by on-line check will be charged a flat fee of $1.00 for each check processed. In addition, those using on-line credit or debit cards either on-line or in person will be charged a fee equal to 2.75% of the transaction amount, plus $.50 if the transaction is for an amount less than $100.00.
Tornado siren testing will be done on the first Tuesday of every month at 10:00am unless there is severe weather in the area.
