The Town will once again impose a Halloween curfew against congregating and loitering by those 18 years of age and younger to begin at 8 p.m. on Tues., Oct. 30 to 6 a.m. on Wed., Oct. 31, and from 8 p.m. Wed., Oct. 31 to 6 a.m. on Thurs., Nov. 1. This is done in conjunction with the Village of Warwick to ensure our younger kids can enjoy Halloween and our neighborhoods, hopefully, can remain free of mischief.
The Town Board continues to work to create a budget that is both balanced and respectful of our residents. Contractual costs which include healthcare and retirement system increases consume our NYS cap allocation every year. The Town Board will still work to ensure adequate investment in infrastructure and public safety to keep our community safe. We continue to be proud to have the lowest Town tax rate of any municipality in Orange County that provides 24 hour police protection and a quality of life second to none. We will work to keep that status.
Under NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets Law, Article 7 and Town Code Chapter 77 (available online at www.townofwarwick.org), any Town of Warwick resident who owns a dog over four (4) months of age is required to license the dog with the Town Clerk. This license must be renewed yearly on the anniversary of the issuance of the license. There are penalties for failing to register your dog, so to avoid unnecessary fees please contact the Town Clerk’s office at 986-1124 to get your pet registered. Thank you for your cooperation.
