The Rec Department is trying a new way to register for the 2019 Rec season! Below are links to the forms to complete for park registration, swim lessons and swim team (fall soccer forms will be available at the Rec or through John Blackburn). We will receive a list of all those who have registered and upon Rec opening, you will pay registration fees and receive your key tags. If you have any questions or trouble completing the forms, please email
Fees are listed on each form. Swim lessons will be July 8th – 26th for session one and July 29th – August 16th for session two.  


All Town 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 continue to move forward with our commitment to provide an efficient, effective, service oriented and available Town Government to YOU!! (Court fines can not be paid at this link, please call court directly for payment arrangements).

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.


We have provided a link to our Town of Stanford Codes, Rules, Regulations and Town Laws. Please see the link to the right side of the home page entitled “Town Code, Rules and Regulations”. You can find all our local laws from A-Z. If you have any questions,  contact Supervisor Joseph Norton
