IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENTS

09/26/2022

Effective 09/26/2022 the Burning Ban in the Town of Crawford has been lifted. Residents may now burn as per the D.E.C. regulations. The water restrictions will remain in place until we receive more rain and the water tables rise to normal levels. Thank you for your help during these restrictions.

Charles E. Carnes
Town of Crawford Supervisor


August 29, 2022

Effective immediately Supervisor Charles Carnes has declared a burning ban in the Town of Crawford. No fires of any type are permitted with the exception of small tended campfires with a containment perimeter around them. We hope to lift this ban as soon as conditions improve.

Charles E. Carnes
Town if Crawford Supervisor


The Town of Crawford has an opening for a Community Services Director. This position is full time with on site and off site hours. You will oversee the senior programs as well as youth and summer camp. In addition you will work with our local business community and our tourism functions. Please send a letter of interest with salary requirements and qualifications to Charles E. Carnes Supervisor at [email protected]


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

Welcome to the Town of Crawford

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes

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.

This was accomplished without layoffs or decreases in services to the public. Police funding was increased as well as services to both the youth and the seniors of our community. The Town has been recognized by the Pine Bush School District and the County of Orange as providing outstanding youth services and our facilities are known and used extensively by our local sports programs.

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.

Fall view of TreesFor 2020 the Town is pleased to announce the continuation of several projects including the expansion of sidewalks down State Route 52 as well as the revitalization of the Bullville area of our Town.

I would like to express my thanks to the Town Board for all their support and hard work to make our Town a great place to work and live and for continuing to keep it affordable in these difficult economic times. Lastly, I would like to thank you, the Town of Crawford taxpayers for all of your input and support. This town continues to be great place to live and raise a family because of the community we have formed together. As always feel free to call my office at any time with suggestions and ideas or attend any one of our board meetings.
