Don’t Miss the STAR Registration Deadline

For the first time, homeowners who are receiving the Basic STAR property tax exemption are required to register with the New York State Tax Department for their exemption. The deadline to register is Tues., Dec. 31.

If you are receiving the Basic STAR exemption, and have not yet registered, don’t risk losing this benefit.  The exemption saves the average homeowner $700.

Online registration on the Tax Department’s Web site is fast, easy and takes less than five minutes.  Visit

If you have questions or don’t have access to the Internet, call the Tax Department at 518-457-2036.

Holiday Sanitation Schedule

       Garbage pick-up for residents with Wednesday pick-up will have their garbage picked up on Thursday, the day after Christmas and also Thursday, the day after New Year’s day. No change for recycling.

Merry Christmas

      Once again, on behalf of the Village Board and all Village employees, we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I hope all are safe, stress free, with good company and enjoying time with family and loved ones.
