Effective on October 14, 2009, all open burning is prohibited in New York with several exceptions including the following:
In towns with a total population less than 20,000, you may burn tree limbs with attached leaves. The limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter and 8 feet in length (also referred to as brush). However, this is not allowed from March 15 through May 15 due to the increased risk of wildfires.
Your assessment should roughly reflect the value for which you can sell your property. However, assessing property is not a science and sometimes you may disagree with the assessor's estimate.
**** Comparable sales must be dated between July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018 ****
Anyone who wishes to file a formal complaint on their assessment must apply for assessment review with the Board of Assessment Review (BOAR) on or before this May 28, 2019. Completed applications (RP-524) should be submitted to the Assessor’s Office on or before this date. If you have a concern, the earlier you meet with the assessor the easier it is to make modifications. You may appear in person, by appointment, and present additional documentation to the BOAR to support your opinion of value
The Town Hall will be closed on Monday, May 27, 2019 in observance of Memorial Day!
