Town of Crawford 2021 Budget

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

 

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes is pleased to announce the 2021 Town of Crawford Budget will once again be below the New York State Property Tax Cap for the 9th consecutive year. This will enable the Town residents to be eligible for any New York State tax credit reimbursements. For 2021 there will be a minimal tax increase of 1.20%

A home in the hamlet would see a decrease in water, sewer, and small increase in the general and highway for a net increase of $4.26 for a home assessed at $75,000 and a market value of $213,493.

A home not in any special district assessed at $100,000 and a market value of $284,653 would see an increase of $17.40

For 2021 general tax levy will be $2,831,775 for general budget which is an increase of $40,489 while the tax levy for the highway department will be $2,137,580 for an increase $53,134

Rateables increased from $336,774,175 to $339,162,334 an increase $2,388,159.

Water, sewer, lighting and parking district have a tax decrease for 2021.

State Aid deceases for highway and new police regulations also increased Town costs.

The largest budget increase were police services, and highway expenses. We used $100,000 from our fund balance for our general budget.

In 2021 we anticipate a new water source for Pine Bush and a revitalization of the Bullville area. As well as new sidewalks in the shopping area downtown.

Despite covid we have constructed new Pickle ball courts, upgraded our park facilities and walking trail as well as instated our friendly visitor and meal delivery for our seniors.

The water district replaced most of the fire hydrants in the Hamlet for improved fire protection.

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.

Fall view of Trees
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.

For 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.
