For those of you who can not come to Town Hall during its regular business hours of 9am-1pm weekdays only, The Town Board has elected to open the Town Hall office at additional times.

The Town Hall will be open every Saturday from 9am-1pm.

We believe this will provide our residents with the convenience and services they deserve.   All Forms can be accessed by using the forms link (Please click here.), and  you can pay by credit card (Please click here.) from your home computer. You don’t even need to come to town hall!  How’s that for service!

We are no longer able to take cash payments in excess of $20. If you must make payment in excess of $20, please use a check or money order ($35.00 fee applies to bounced checks).

DID YOU GET YOUR REBATE CHECK?? Because the Town of Stanford stayed under the tax cap (we actually decreased taxes again this year!) all residents who earn less than $500,000 per year  should have received a rebate check from NYS. Not only did we decrease your taxes, but we were able to get you a refund check from NYS as well! If you have any questions call 518-453-8146, when prompted press #2 or contact Supervisor Joseph Norton, Councilwoman Mary Weinberger or Councilman Mark D’Agostino who worked hard on this program for you! If you haven’t received your check please call the number listed above as NYS has had delays in processing millions of homeowners checks.
