Trees

The Town will be purchasing trees through the NYPA Fall tree program. NYPA will match every tree we purchase with another tree of the same species. They will be delivered in the fall. Several of the tree species are ones that will work well with improvements slated for around municipal facilities. We anticipate using these trees for Town Hall, The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center, Gedney Park , and other facilities. The actual tree planting will be coordinated in the fall. 

Town and County Taxes Are Now Due.

Town and County Tax Collection continues through the end of April. The last day to pay your 2018 Town and County Tax Bill without penalty is Monday, April 30. The tax office will be open from 7 am to 7 pm on Monday, April 30. The tax office also accepts a United States Postmark of April 30 as proof of timely payment. If you are mailing your tax bill, please make sure you see the post office affix a post mark to the envelope.

Paving and Painting

Weather permitting, we will be paving in the downtown hamlet- up the King Street hill, North Greeley, South Greeley and lower King Street. Weather permitting, after that is done, we will be repainting cross walks in that area as well as parking lines on lower King.
