Town of Crawford 2022 Budget Tax Decrease

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

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes is pleased to announce his final 2022 budget, which was approved by the Town Board at their November 18, 2021 meeting. 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.
