NEWS & NOTICES
A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERVISOR
Winter is here!
I hope everybody is enjoying the Holiday season and looking forward to a great 2019!
Again it’s that time of year when we have to pay our Town and County taxes. The Town of Cochecton’s Budget for 2019 has a decrease from 2018. Also the County Budget is showing a decrease along with a reduction in the Solid Waste fee so your Tax bill should also show a decrease. The only increase will be those who are in the Lake Huntington Sewer District because of several upgrades and repairs over the last two years.
Eileen Hennessy is our Tax Collector, and her hours for the Tax season are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4pm. To 7 pm. She is also available on Saturdays by appointment only. If weather is bad, please call to see that she is in the office. (845) 932-8630 Ext. 17.
If you wish to pay your taxes by credit card, you can no longer pay on taxlookup.net. This is the link you can go to make credit card payment https://webtownhall.com/cochectonny/Home.aspx Payment Services provided by Satellite.biz. The credit carriers charge a 3% fee on each transaction. You can no longer PAY taxes on taxlookup.net but you can still get a duplicate copy/receipt of your tax bill or check the status of your payment at taxlookup.net
We hope you explore our website and find it to be easy to navigate and find the information you need whether it be forms, applications or contact numbers for the different Departments. There is a news and an events calendar with youth and senior events and upcoming town and planning board meetings. We have included pictures of each of the department heads so that you can identify them if you stop by the Town Hall or if they happen to stop by your residence. We hope that this site makes it easy for you to keep up to date on any forms or news of what’s going on in Cochecton!
I am proud to announce that the Community Room in the basement of the Town Hall is providing Senior Meals on Tuesday and Thursday provided by the Sullivan County Senior Nutrition Program. If you have any questions just call me at 845-932-8360 ext. 15
Have a great winter and Happy Holidays to all!
