Summer Camp Cancelled 2020
It is after extensive thought and review of guidelines, that we’ve made the very difficult decision to cancel our Summer Camp program for the summer of 2020.
The coronavirus pandemic has had a profound impact globally, nationally, and locally. Unfortunately, it continues to pose significant challenges. We learn more every day, but there are many unknown factors.
We still await NYS approvals for summer camps and larger group gatherings.
Once advised, there would be an extremely short amount of time in which to develop new policies that would ensure physical distancing and safety at camp. There would be little-to-no time to hire and train counselors on the newly implemented policies.
As always, we remain grateful to our loyal staff, and thankful for all of our camp families.
We ask for your understanding, and extend our best wishes to you all for a healthy and safe summer.
We can’t wait to see you again next year!
Grievance is being held by telephone conference only. If you want to listen to the Board of Assessment Review please call 845-744-3721 for details.

EXTENSION OF LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY
On March 7, 2020, the Governor of the State of New York declared a State disaster emergency for the entire State of New York in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 19, 2020, the President of the United States declared a national emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 13, 2020, as Chief Executive of the Town of Crawford, I declared a Local State of Emergency in the Town of Crawford.
In a continuing effort to control the effects of this pandemic in the Town of Crawford, pursuant to the powers vested in me by New York State Executive Law §24, I hereby extend the Local State of Emergency. The State of Emergency shall remain in effect for an additional thirty (30) days, through May 15, 2020, and may be extended at that time.
I am extending the Local State of Emergency in order to use the powers granted to me as Chief Executive to issue Emergency Orders as may be necessary to protect the health and wellbeing of the residents of the Town of Crawford, and request emergency assistance and resources for Town residents and businesses from the County, State and Federal governments.

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.
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.
