In 2021 we anticipate a new water source for Pine Bush and a revitalization of the Bullville area. As well as new sidewalks in the shopping area downtown.
Despite covid we have constructed new Pickle ball courts, upgraded our park facilities and walking trail as well as instated our friendly visitor and meal delivery for our seniors.
The water district replaced most of the fire hydrants in the Hamlet for improved fire protection.

Welcome to the Town of Crawford website. We are all very happy to be able to offer our residents and visitors an internet connection designed to be informative and helpful. We hope that our website will make interaction with Town government more accessible.
On behalf of the Town of Crawford, I am pleased to present the Town’s 2020 Budget for your consideration. Despite the poor economic climate and increased costs in many areas, including unfunded mandates handed down from the state, we have continued to control costs in the areas that we can. This year, town residents will see an increase of less than 1% in their taxes. The general tax rate consisting of the Highway and most other departments continues to be under the New York State Property Tax Cap for the 8th consecutive year.
During 2019, events that support our local business owners have continued to grow and several new shops and restaurants have opened within our town. Our beautiful walking trail expansion was completed and new equipment for the highway department was purchased. I would like to take this time to thank the many employees who worked this past year with us to find ways to save money and be more efficient while maintaining services to our residents.
