A Message from Morton

Well, it is autumn — as leaves fall important events come up.  September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the American Library Association and Morton remind you to get your free library card if you don’t already have one.  Your card is a key to a wonderful world.

The Morton Board invites you to a presentation taking place in Morton Hall on October 4, 2016 at 7:15 p.m., where members will address Morton’s request to the voters for an additional $30,000 on election day in November.  Your input and your support are appreciated!

On Saturday, October 8, please hop on board for a cruise on the Hudson to raise funds for Morton.  If you scroll down, you will see more details about this fun annual event.

Note:  The meetings of the Morton Board are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:00 p.m.  The public is always welcome.


Leaf Collection & Disposal September 27, 2016

It’s that time of year again! The leaves change and fall, and while beautiful, can cause a bit of a mess and headache for you. Here are some useful ideas and suggestions for dealing with the annual onslaught.
Did you know?
It is illegal to burn your leaves and yard waste. The State of New York has declared a statewide ban on open fires.
The DEC recommends composting your yard waste instead.

Prepare your yard for winter. PBS’s perennial favorite, This Old House, has a handy guideline for making your fall landscaping to-do list….

If you are interested in learning the best methods for composting your leaves and yard waste, here are a few tricks and tips.

If you are not able to compost your leaves, your city or town may have arrangements for leaf pick up. Please contact your local government to find out about leaf collection schedules and guidelines. For example, the town of Poughkeepsie posts a schedule for residents. The City of Poughkeepsie has not posted a schedule, but residents may check here for more information:
