Water Billing Issue


To Village Residents,

The Village of Delhi would like to inform the residents of the village who fall under schedule “A” for water billing that we had an issue which we feel explanation should be made. As you are aware, we have recently changed our water billing software. Transitioning from one computer program to another is never an easy move no matter how much care and effort is taken. We certainly tried to make this change smoothly and of no concern to you, the residents. Unfortunately, we have identified a problem that actually occurred last November, but did not manifest itself until this cycle of billing for those on schedule “A”. In October, instead of the billing drawing in the numbers for the normal three months of water consumption, it only brought in two months. You should have noted that your bill for the last cycle was low. Now, the program has billed for the last four months, making up for the lost previous month. That means that your bill for this cycle is significantly higher. You are not paying for water you did not use, only catching up for the water consumed which failed to be billed last time.

We apologize for any difficulty this may have caused you. We always try to look out for our residents’ interests and provide the best service possible. If you feel that you would like further explanation, the mayor’s door is always open and I am glad to take time and visit. If you would like to see how your water bill was arrived at for this quarter, either Kim or Pam would be happy to show you how the numbers were calculated.

We are hopeful that the “glitches” have been worked through and that all future billings should be error free. Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any problems or concerns.

Stories from the Village Historian: The Mysterious Death of John Hulbert


Local newspapers of the day so often provided intriguing and sometimes shocking accounts of daily life. Following is an edited excerpt from the October 21, 1896 issue of the Delaware Gazette:

Sudden Death In Jail: John Hulbert of Stamford was in jail, indicted on burglary 2nd degree and grand larceny 3rd degree charges. The case was brought to trial last Saturday, adjourned to Monday. Saturday night, he was taken very sick, but in a short time appeared to be better. On Monday morning, he was feeling badly again, and the sheriff thought the cause was worry over his case and that he would soon get better. No further attention was given to the matter. Hulbert soon entered his cell and lay down on his cot, and as other prisoners assumed, went to sleep. A short time later, he was found to be breathing heavily and the sheriff was summoned. Drs. Gates and Reynolds were immediately summoned, but before their arrival, Hulbert died. An exam revealed that his death was caused "by some powerful poison..." Upon investigation it was found that one James Maguire of Walton, who had been imprisoned for violation of the excise law, was "short of a quantity of opium which he usually carried on his person and that he had given Hulbert a small amount." The supposition was that Hulbert had then overdosed on the opium. His remains were taken to Jackson & Mason for a post mortem exam and autopsy, done by  Drs. Reynolds and Goodrich. Coroner Gates summoned the following jury: J.A. Hunt, J. Fairburn, J. Birdsall, S.F. Adee, David Wight, Edwin Bell, M. Mitchell and J. K. Hood. 

The jury met in the evening in the Grand Jury rooms. Witnesses summoned included W. O. Porter, the sheriff and Undersheriff F. Wilbur. Mrs. Hulbert was examined as to the domestic relations with her husband. Upon examination, Jason Maguire testified that he gave Hulbert a small amount of opium, as being an "opium eater", he always carried it with him. On Saturday morning, he found his supply "somewhat smaller than it ought to be", and he believed that Hulbert had taken some on his own.

The verdict was death by overdose of opium administered by his own hand. It was said that Hulbert had told his wife that he would never go to state prison and that she ought to have his grave dug at once, thereby raising the question that he had made the decision to take his own life. Hulbert leaves behind a wife and three children in destitute circumstances. Burial was in Stamford.

Dear Village Resident,

Village of Delhi has discovered we had a software glitch with our new enhanced water/sewer software with the billing we mailed out last week for B Route.

You will find the corrected postcard billing for your water/sewer account—the previous billing was issued for 1 month instead of the previous 3 months as it should have been.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Clerk’s office, #607-746-2258 option 1 and speak to Kim or Pam for further clarification.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you.

Maintenance Monday!


The Village of Delhi has recently acquired a new John Deere X758 Tractor equipped with a sweeper, snowblower, and salt spreader. This valuable addition to our fleet is dedicated to winter street and sidewalk maintenance, focusing on tasks such as snow removal and deicing. The acquisition was made possible through funding from the CHIPS program. The Village of Delhi will receive full reimbursement for the tractor and its accompanying implements.

Snow Removal Reminder


Village of Delhi residents are required to clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowfall. In the event that sidewalks remain uncleared after the specified time frame, the village reserves the right to hire a professional service to clear the sidewalks. Please be aware that any costs incurred in this process will be the responsibility of the property owner.

Maintenance Monday!


The Village recently had the pumps on Prospect realigned. It will help them to last longer and function better!
