With the cold spell we are monitoring Crane's Pond ice thickness daily. We only open up Crane's pond for ice skating when we are sure that the ice is safe. Greenburgh Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce that Crane's Pond in Old Edgemont will be open for ice skating December 31. Have fun and have a great new year.
You still have time to pre-pay your 2018 town and fire district taxes. Payments can be made on the internet till tomorrow night (December 31 up till the new year). You can also pay the 2nd half of the 2017 school tax on the internet.
Hundreds of taxpayers are pre-paying their town tax bills or paying the 2nd half of the school tax this year -hoping to get the property tax deductions that they won't be entitled to after next years tax code goes into effect. The town can't guarantee what the IRS will decide but we have been very conservative with our approach-- haven't accepted county taxes because there was no warrant, haven't accepted pre payment of school taxes because the taxes were not assessed. The Town Board approved the 2018 town budget and issued a warrant at a special meeting. We recommend that you consult your financial advisors before deciding whether pre- payment is for you.
