For those of you who like to pay their second half school taxes in December, our tax office will be open Wednesday December 26, Thursday December 27 and Friday December 28.The Tax office will only be open until noon on Monday December 31 to accept tax payment. Our online system is available 24/7- and you are free to pay by ACH without fee on-line. Credit card fees are passed through so there is a 3% charge for those. The second half school tax payment is due without penalty until January 31. The Tax office will be open on January 31 from 7 am to 7 pm for collection.

Town Board Meetings

This is the last town Board meeting of 2018. The 2019 Organizational Meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 2 at 6:30 pm and will be followed by a short work session. The 2019 town board meeting schedule will be adopted at that time.

Zoning RFP

A pre-submission conference with potential candidates interested in responding to the Zoning RFP will be held tomorrow at 9 am in the Assembly Room. We look forward to receiving responses to the Zoning RFP due later in January of 2019 and to starting work on this important project.

Winter Parking Rules

Winter Off Street parking rules are in effect. That means no parking town roads between 11 pm ad 6 am until April- so please be mindful of that.

Also we have Winter overnight parking restrictions in the Commuter Lot. Overnight parking is allowed by the former skate board parking and in the triangle adjacent to Town Hall. If you know or suspect you are leaving your car overnight at the train station lot- please make sure you are parked in one of those designated areas. If it snows, we need to be able to clear the lot.

Best wishes for a great holiday and a healthy and happy 2019!
