Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The arrival of the spring and summer seasons will bring a great deal of activity to our community. The town has an ambitious paving schedule for the upcoming months which will include all of the following streets:
Clifton Street First Avenue Second Avenue Hill Street
Grace Street Grand Alley Grove Street Shear Court
Charles Street River Street Barley Court Orchard Lane
Timber Drive Appaloosa Court Suncrest Drive Devitt Road
Harvest Way Wood Lot Court Morgan Lane Industry Drive
Specific dates for each street will be posted on the town website as they become finalized. We would appreciate the cooperation of all residents affected by the paving projects so that the projects can be completed as efficiently as possible and with a minimum amount of inconvenience to everyone involved.
Our trash drop off program is now open and available to all town residents at the Town Highway garage every Saturday through May 18th. I am also very pleased to announce that the fees for trash drop off services have been substantially reduced. Effective immediately the new fee schedule is:
Automobiles -- $5 Pick Up Trucks & Vans -- $15 Vehicles with Trailers -- $25
We are also cautiously optimistic that we will soon begin construction on our Mohawk Gateway Streetscape Project. This project is focused on Saratoga Avenue between Clifton and Fulton Streets. Upon completion, the project will result in improved drainage of Saratoga Avenue, new crosswalks for improved pedestrian safety, along with the installation of new street lighting, new plantings and pedestrian benches. The drainage improvements will be undertaken by the New York State Department of Transportation and completed first. The additional enhancements will be undertaken upon completion of the drainage improvements.
On behalf of the Town Board and all employees of the town, please have a safe and very enjoyable spring season.
Our Hearts and prayers are with our Troops all over the world!
The Town of Waterford is situated in the southeastern corner of Saratoga County, 12 miles north of Albany at the junction of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, and the junction of the Erie and Champlain Canals. It is the home of the “Waterford Flight”, the highest set of lift locks in the world.
The 2019 Tentative Town Tax Assessment Roll has been completed and is available for inspection in the Town Clerk's Office during regular hours. The information is also available on the County's website; https://www.saratogacountyny.gov/2019-tentative-assessment-rolls/
Scroll down and click on the Town of Waterford link and you will have access to the entire Tentative Roll.
To find a particular property, owner, or address, use the “Find” box. Many residents feel it is important to know the assessments on their properties. If you need help reading the Roll or understanding its abbreviations, the Assessor is usually available to help (call for an appointment: 235-9907).
Using either of these methods can help you decide if your assessment is fair or needs review. If review is your choice, go to www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/publications/orpts/grievancebooklet.pdf or telephone your Assessor.
Make Waterford part of your vacation this year!
