SPECIAL MEETING NOTICE
PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Town Board of the Town of Crawford will hold a special meeting for the purpose of holding a public hearing on September 29th, 2021 at 6:00 PM, in person at the Crawford Senior and Community Center, 115 State Route 302, Pine Bush, New York to consider and hear public comment on a proposed increase and improvement of the facilities of the Pine Bush Water District and to take action on said proposed increase and improvement of said facilities, and on any other business that may come before the board. In addition, the public may attend this meeting via remote ZOOM videoconference, as described further below.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the proposed improvements include the purchase of property for the protection of two newly drilled water production wells and construction of a well house approximately 1,600 LF north of NYS Route 52 on Dubois Street (Tax Parcel: Section 2, Block 1, Lot 79.2), along with installation of a water main to connect to the Water District’s existing water system in the hamlet of Pine Bush. The proposed 20 feet x 30 feet treatment building would provide chlorination of the groundwater source and provision for future sequestration, if needed. Treated groundwater would be pumped to the Water District’s existing water system via approximately 6,100 feet of 8-inch diameter HDPE transmission main installed along NYS Route 52 and connected to the existing water system on State Route 52 across from Boniface Drive.
The estimated maximum cost of the proposed project is $4,762,100. The County has previously secured a Local Government Efficiency Grant (in 2012 and 2015) in the amount of $920,200 for drilling and design work for the subsequently proposed wells on County land. The proposed wells on County land will be replaced by the newly drilled wells on the Dubois property. The Town has secured a WIIA grant from the State Environmental Facilities Corporation in the amount of $2,311,680, and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Financial Assistance in the amount of $1,001,100 for the proposed well house and connection to the Dubois wells. Municipal contributions will be in the estimated amount of $540,000 grant match. A map and plan of the proposed improvements is on file in the Town Clerk’s office. All persons interested will be heard by the Town Board at the public hearing.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that persons who attend the meeting via Zoom will be able to see and hear the meeting, but will not be able to make or submit oral or written comments during the meeting.

Notice of Filing
Completed Assessment Roll
Notice is hereby given that the assessment roll for the Town of Crawford, County of Orange, State of New York, for the year 2021 has been completed by the undersigned Assessor and a certified copy thereof will be filed in the office of the Town Clerk, located at 121 State Route. 302, Pine Bush, New York, on the 1st day of July, 2021, where it will remain open for public inspection.
Dated July 1, 2021.
The Assessor is a local government official who is obligated by New York state law to maintain assessment at a uniform percentage of the market value each year. In order to maintain a uniform roll, each year your assessor will need to analyze all of the properties in the municipality; which may include ongoing physical inspections and also taking exterior pictures of parcels. The assessor also reviews every transfer of real property for accuracy.
The assessor also performs many other administrative functions, such as approving and maintaining property tax exemptions. Among the most common are the Senior Citizen STAR, Veteran, Agricultural, Non-Profit and Business exemptions. All exemptions are due in our office by March 1st. You may call our office directly for information and requirements. All subdivisions and lot-line changes are completed by the assessor.
The assessor is continually communicating with the public, answering questions and dealing with concerns raised by taxpayers.
Attention New Homeowners
Did you recently purchase a home? Is it your primary residence? Is your adjusted gross income less than $500,000?
If you answered yes to all of these questions, you may be eligible for a Basic STAR credit.
If you will be 65 years old by December 31, 2022, and your 2020 adjusted gross income is less than $92,000, you may be eligible for the Enhanced STAR credit.
Call: (518) 457-2036 or
A MESSAGE FROM THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE: Be Aware of Property Tax Appeal Company’s which are doing mass mailings trying to get homeowners to sign up to review your property assessment. These companies will charge a fee if you receive any reduction. In the fine print there is also a $75 fee for an appraisal and a $30 court filing fee. Sometimes a penalty fee is also added if you decide to withdraw your case. Please contact the Assessor’s Office before you sign anything. We will gladly review your assessment and property records with you and make any necessary adjustments. It’s what we do! Another unnecessary expense are companies offering to get you a copy of your deed. Again, contact the Assessor’s office and we will advise you how to do that. 845-744-3721.
