Town of Crawford 2022 Budget Tax Decrease

Town of Crawford, 121 State Route 302, Pine Bush New York

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes is pleased to announce his final 2022 budget, which was approved by the Town Board at their November 18, 2021 meeting. For 2022 the general budget will show a decrease of 8.8 cents per thousand of assessed valuation.  This will be the 10th consecutive year where the Town is under the New York State tax cap.

Special districts will also have a decrease in the parking, lighting and sewer districts. The water district will show a slight increase in usage and tax rates as the Town undertakes approximately five million dollars in water improvements.

For the 2022 budget Supervisor Carnes is proud to increase police services for the safety of our residents as well as increased funding for senior programs and tourism to support our business owners. We will continue capital improvements for 2022 while giving our taxpayer a slight tax decrease despite ever increasing cost mandates from both the State and Federal Government.

More Information about Flushing

During the flushing program, most crews work between 9:00 am to 3:00 pm., and 9:00 pm to 2:00 am Monday through Friday.

 

What is the Water Main (Hydrant) Flushing Program?

To improve water quality and minimize discoloration, water mains are comprehensively flushed by a technique known as Conventional flushing. The procedure is performed in warm-weather months and involves the systematic opening and closing of hydrants, one section of main at a time, to force the water through the pipes at high velocity, removing accumulated mineral sediment until the water is clear. The operation can take from a few minutes to over an hour, although most last about 30 minutes.

How Will Flushing Affect Water Service?

When flushing crews are working close to your residence or business, you may experience periods of very low pressure or even a complete stoppage of service. Flushing operations may also lead to discolored water, which can be drawn into homes and businesses if the water is being used during or immediately following the flushing. Such events should affect customers for a few hours at most. The discoloration is caused by iron (red color) or manganese (black color) particles being dislodged from the water main which can stain porcelain and laundry. If discoloration occurs, open the cold tap nearest the water meter—usually a basement sink—to full flow until the water runs clear. In some situations, this may take 5 to 10 minutes. It is also advised that you make sure your water is clear before doing laundry or other projects for which discolored water could cause problems.

A precise schedule of flushing operations is difficult to determine more than a day or two in advance. We ask for your patience and understanding during this critical main cleaning process.
