The Village of Ravena is now sending out the leaf vacuum for picking up raked leaves and grass clippings only.  Please place your piles of leaves alongside the road not in the road.

The Village of Ravena will continue to pick up bagged leaves, grass clippings, and twigs. No plastic bags are allowed, just paper leaf bags.  Bags should be placed near the street and should contain grass, leaves and vegetable compost only, weighing no more than 50 pounds total.  Brush will also be picked up as long as it placed with cut end toward the road with no other lawn debris in the pile.

The Village of Ravena is once again planning our annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, December 5, 2015.  We plan on meeting at the gazebo at Coeymans Landing to line-up for our parade.  We anticipate that the Town of Coeymans will kick off the festivities at 6:30 pm with the lighting of their Christmas tree.  The Village and Town Officials will lead off the parade, proceeding to the Village of Ravena for the lighting of our Christmas tree.  Caroling along with treats and a visit from Santa at the Ravena Firehouse will conclude our evening.  Hope to see you there!

Also at 3 pm stop by the Ravena Fire House with your completed selfies from the Scavenger Hunt on your phone or on your camera and stick around for crafts and activities for your children!

Ravena Selfie Scavenger Hunt (RCS Community Library):  Take a selfie picture showing each destination describe in their clues for a chance to win a  $50 gift certificate to a local business of your choice (Nov. 28th - Dec. 5th). 

Also at the library on December 5th is the fourth annual Sweets with Santa from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm.  Meet Santa, listen to stories, do arts and crafts with a special guest, buy some sweets at our bake sale, and decorate a gingerbread house.  For more information visit the library's website at http://www.rcscommunitylibrary.org.

Village Water

It has come to our attention that a few village residents have voiced concerns about their water via social media.  To hopefully alleviate any concerns, click on the links below to view documents showing recent results of water tested at the filtration plant.  As you can see, the results are well-within mandated parameters and the water leaving the Ravena Filtration plant is perfect potable quality for consumers.  If there are any questions and/or concerns contact the water plant at 756-2024. Thank you.
