We must all do our part immediately to reduce the spread of this virus.

The playground and sports courts at the Park will be closed until further notice to help stop the potential spread of Cornoavirus.

We apologize for the inconvenience but it is more important for all of us to heed the advice of medical experts and protect public health.

Your support is greatly appreciated

Tax bills will be mailed the last week in May. If you are a new homeowner or you are paying your own taxes for the first time because you have paid off your mortgage, please be sure we have your correct name and mailing address. Tax payments must be received or postmarked no later than July 2 to avoid penalty charges. After July 2, you will be assessed a 5% penalty, with an additional 1% every month thereafter. Please note that this is not a Village regulation but a New York State mandate. We cannot waive penalties even if you do not receive your bill. If you do not get a tax bill by June 8, please call the Village so we can issue you a duplicate bill.
