Conrad  Bourguignon
Former Town Supervisor from 1979 to 1984, Conrad Bourguignon passed away this month.  During the 1970's, Conny held the position of constable.  He was also a life member of the Sawkill Volunteer Fire Company.  Friends remember him as a wonderful and strong man.  Conny is best remembered as the man who orgainzed the "Sawkill Rock Festival".  He led the Town's people into the Sawkill Creek by 3 Melissa Road and had them remove rocks and boulders by hand.  On one weekend in March, 1982, over 80 tons of rock were removed from the creek by the townspeople.  Our prayers go out to his family.


Please be aware that tax bills were mailed out on December 30, 2014.  Due to the increasingly poor workings of our postal system, if you have not received your tax bill by January 20th, please call the Town Clerk's office at 336-8853, Ext. 13 and request your tax information.  Penalties apply after January 31st, regardless of the situation with the postal service.

Local Law #1 of 1991 prohibits parking of vehicles on all Town roads between the hours of 9PM and 7AM from the 1st day of October each year and continuing through the 15th day of April in the succeeding year. It is also the responsibility of each vehicle owner to remove his/her vehicle from a Town road whenever snow removal operations are in progress. Also, remove any basketball backboards or other bulky items, especially trash cans, from curbside so that the snow can be removed from streets as quickly as possible.

 The Town is NOT RESPONSIBLE for damage to mailboxes due to snowplowing.
