SFPD urges students to be safe after incident on 1/13
On January 13, 2015, at approximately 3:00 pm, the Town of Seneca Falls Police Department responded to the area near 38 Garden Street (Elizabeth Cady Stanton School) for a report of a male chasing a student that had just exited the school bus and was walking home. Witnesses state that the subject is believed to be a white male between 5'8 to 6 feet tall, clean shaven, dressed in all black clothing with a black hood covering his face. The Seneca Falls Police Department is currently investigating this incident and is asking that if anyone has any information to contact the Seneca Falls Police Department at 315-568-4850. The SFPD will have additional patrol in that area, as well as other school areas. SFCSD staff will also be increasing supervision during student student entry and dismissal times. Safety Tips: The Seneca Falls Police Department would like to remind parents/guardians to review with the children or young adults in your care on how to protect themselves during incidents like these. For those discussions, we offer the following safety tips:
• Look, listen, stay safe. Be aware of your surroundings when walking in public.. Avoid distractions while walking such as books or electronics.
• Whenever possible use the buddy system. Urge your children to walk with a friend or friends. There's safety in numbers.
• Watch out for strangers in cars. Watch for cars that follow you. NEVER approach a stranger in a car for ANY reason.
• If a stranger talks to you from a car, ignore them, and walk or even run away.
• Yell and Tell. If a stranger makes you uncomfortable or scares you, YELL and run away. Find someone you trust and TELL them what happened.
• Trust your instincts. Only you get to decide when you're uncomfortable or scared. Don't be afraid to tell a stranger "No", ignore them, or just run away!

Sewer Inspections Now Required
Effective immediately: The Town of Seneca Falls through combination of the old “Village” and “Town” of Seneca Falls Codes has created one uniform code, applicable to all residents. Inflow / Infiltration Inspections (Aka Sewer Inspections) are now required to be completed on all properties in Seneca Falls and all areas serviced by the public sewer of the Town. Procedure dictates (§230-64), that inspection be completed prior to the transfer of a property and to comply with code §230, Articles IV and VIII. The main purpose of the inspection requirement is to prevent stormwater from entering the wastewater sewer system that is ultimately treated at the Town’s wastewater treatment plant. This is required to ensure compliance with the NYS Department of Conservation. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Water and Sewer Codes, please contact the Water Department at (315)568-6211. All Code questions can be research at www.generalcode.com or you can contact the Zoning & Code Enforcement Officer at (315)568-8013 for information.
