Happy Halloween!  There is a lot of activity this week around Au Sable Forks for Halloween.  Put on your best costume and stop by the Community Center from 4:00 pm– 7:00 pm on October 31st for the Town of Jay’s Haunted Hallway.  This quick walk through will have you shaking in your boots while we also satisfy your sweet tooth!  After you are done at the Community Center, visit the Town of Black Brook’s Halloween at the River Park which begins at 4:30 pm.  At River Park, the Dogfather will be there with complementary hot dogs, you can enjoy s’mores around the campfire, and much more! On Sunday, November 5th from 8:00 am to 11:00 am, you can enjoy the Au Sable Forks Fire Department’s Big Breakfast at the firehouse featuring Pumpkin Pancakes.


The Town of Jay Budget Hearing is set for November 6th at 7:00pm at the Community Center.  You can attend this public hearing in person or online as well at our normal town board meeting link:  https://meet.goto.com/455178293 .  Preliminary budgets are available at the Town Clerk’s Office and on the website on the Documents and Forms page under the About tab.  You can also view the previous adopted Town of Jay budgets from 2021 – Present on that webpage.  We have put together a 2024 Budget Overview at the link:  https://www.townofjayny.gov/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/2024-Budget-Overview-Final.pdf to help explain the Preliminary Budget.


The Town of Jay would like to welcome Dan McDonald to the Water/Wastewater Department.  Dan will be working closely with Operator Paul Mintz to get his certifications in water and wastewater to become the Assistant Operator for all of our districts.  Paul will also be working with the Highway Department’s Trevor Karl to get his certifications to be a Backup Operator for the town.  This will help us catch up on some of the work that needs to get done and bring stability to our districts for years to come.  Thank you and welcome aboard!


Hope you have a great week,
