January 10, 2017 Snow Removal Update
The Summer Village has just reached an agreement with, and will be starting to contract from, the Summer Village of Ross Haven for snow removal services.    The contractor will be coming through with a truck and blade first and removing snow from the streets/roads.     The contractor will then return with a skid steer and remove the windrows from your driveways.    As this is a new contractor, please be patient as this new contractor learns the roads within our Summer Village.   And to assist the contractor in this process, please ensure your waste carts are removed from the roadway thereby allowing a better job to be done.  Thank you for your cooperation.


Use of Municipal Reserves
The Summer Village of Yellowstone currently allows residents winter storage of the following items on the Summer Village’s Community Reserve Park/Municipal Reserve areas, however, these items MUST be removed by May 31st of each calendar year:
• boat lifts,
• boat hoists,
• pier sections.
All other storage and uses are considered unapproved encroachments onto Municipal Property and Public Lands. The Summer Village of Yellowstone is currently promoting the education of its residents to resolve the problem of encroachment. Encroachment happens when residents expand their yards and personal property onto public property. This can be done in many ways, including; planting trees, hedges, landscaping, gardens, fire pits, storage of RV’s, boat lifts, firewood, composters, grass cuttings, tree branches, installation of fences, building sheds, dumping garbage, etc. These items are not permitted on any public property, including municipal reserves, leased land, parks, utility right of ways, streets or any other property owned by the Summer Village unless strictly allowed by the Municipality.
