Open government in Croton
As your smallest level of government, our Village has limited resources. But as the government closest to the people, our Village needs to communicate with you about an astonishingly broad array of services–from tax grievances to parking permits and wedding ceremonies to dog licenses. I hope the information below helps you get the information you need from the Village.
If you have a question about something, the first step would be to call our main office, 914-271-4781, during Village business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 am to 4 pm). During non-business hours, you may leave a voice message there.
If sending a message via the web is easier for you, click the “Contact Us” button on our home page anytime. Your question or comment will be forwarded to the best person for a response.
If you want to browse the agenda for upcoming Village Board of Trustee meetings, visit http://crotononhudson.novusagenda.com/. Or find the same information via our home page by clicking on the “Minutes & Agendas” button on the left and then choosing which board or committee’s records you want to examine.
The meetings of all the Village’s boards and committees are open to the public and are announced in our online Calendar, among other places. To view the calendar of all Village events, click the “Events Calendar” button.
For information about past meetings, use the “SEARCH” bar on the home page to locate topics you want to look up. You may also search in http://crotononhudson.novusagenda.com/. In addition, Board of Trustee meetings from June 2006 to the present may be viewed as webcasts. To view webcasts of the current year click “On-Demand Webcasts” button on the Village home page. To view webcasts of prior years click on the “Meeting Minutes and Web Casts” link on the Board of Trustees web page.
If you want to get notices by phone or email from the Village about important developments, click on the "Subscribe to News" button at our home page. At this page you can sign up for email notification on various topics and also sign up for the Village’s Emergency Call and Email Notification System. Enter your preferred contact information. We use the notification service sparingly and only for official information or for updates about important events, such as power outages, road closures, and the like.
In addition, you can reach me, the mayor, via the “Contact” link on the Mayor’s Corner page. You will find contact information for the entire Board of Trustees by clicking the “Boards and Committees” button on the home page and then selecting “Board of Trustees.” Each Village Department head–from Assessor to Water–may be contacted via the “Departments” button on our home page.
