Town of Crawford 2022 Budget

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

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes is pleased to announce his tentative 2022 budget. 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.

NOTICE OF ADOPTION OF LOCAL LAW

SUBJECT TO PERMISSIVE REFERENDUM

            NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Town Board of the Town of Crawford, at a special meeting held on July 27, 2021, after issuance of a SEQR Negative Declaration for this Unlisted action, duly adopted a local law, subject to permissive referendum, titled “Opt-Out of Allowing Cannabis Dispensaries and On-Site Cannabis Consumption Establishments,” which local law opts-out the Town of Crawford from the state statute authorizing towns to allow the licensing and establishing of cannabis retail dispensaries and cannabis on-site consumption establishments within the Town, and thus prohibit such establishments in the Town of Crawford.

Coterminous Town/Village Petition for Consolidation

The Supervisor and Town Board support the Coterminous Town/Village petition for Consolidation. The attached question and answer sheet should answer most questions. This petition allows the Town to put this up for a vote by the residents in the Spring of 2022. If this is passed by the voters this consolidation would protect our current zoning and eliminate the possibility of new entities being formed within the Town’s borders. In a state as costly to live in as New York this should help keep the taxes more stable than what they would be if new entities are formed. Protect your values, including open space and strict zoning that were outlined in the Town of Crawford master plan and sign a petition for a vote on this consolidation. Should you have any further questions reach out to the Town Supervisor, Town Clerk or any Town Board member and we would be happy to answer them.

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes
