Town Hall Renovations
We are on schedule to complete inside renovations in the Town Hall Building by the last week in March. Outdoor renovations should be completed by the end of April, weather permitting. A dedication ceremony will be held in the Spring upon the completion of all renovations. We will communicate a date for this event in the near future. All residents and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend!
LED Streetlight Conversion
We continue to make progress on the conversion of our streetlights to LED. The survey for this conversion has been completed by RealTerm Energy and we have begun the streetlight acquisition process with Orange & Rockland. The next step is the completion of the Investment Grade Audit which involves assessing the acquisition of the streetlight system, the retrofit of the fixtures to LED technology & the development of a maintenance program. Upon the completion of this audit, we will move forward with the bid process for the conversion installation. We are excited about this project and believe it creates a balance between efficient lighting and cost savings for our residents.
Tax Collection Update
To date, the Tax Collector has collected 83% of the tax bills.
A 1% penalty will be added for payments made during February. A 2% penalty will be added for payments made during March. As a reminder, the last day for the acceptance of tax payments is March 31, 2020. Tax payments after that date must be paid to the Orange County Commissioner of Finance.
