Town of Greenbush Newsletter

***********************************************************​​​​The Town of Greenbush is working on a project that will get an ATM machine located here at the Town Office. This should help those residents who need to pay for services at the Town Office but only have debit or credit cards. Keep an eye out for this service. MORE TO COME – SOON.
Landfill will be open for one weekend – November 11th & November 12th (Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) to help residents clean up from the storm. Please bring your storm-related debris to the landfill.
Dog licenses are now available for the 2018-licensing year. Fees are still $11 for unaltered dogs (male or female) and $6 for spayed or neutered dogs. You are required to license your dogs by December 31st each year. Don’t be late. Bring your pets updated rabies certificate.
                                                                   TAXES AND TAX LIENS
      The 2017-2018 tax bills have been mailed. If you have not received your bill, contact the Town Office to make sure we have your correct mailing address. The taxes are due upon receipt. The interest penalty date is still December 31st. If you mail your tax payment, any tax payments that are postmarked December 31, 2017 will be accepted as on time with no interest charged. All taxpayers are encouraged to pay their taxes before the penalty date to avoid costly interest from accruing.
      Tax Liens have been filed for last year’s taxes (2017). For those of you who didn’t pay last year’s tax, please know that the lien costs added are upwards of $50.00 for each account. This can certainly add up. Take the time now to start paying your taxes monthly to avoid those costs.

      If you have any questions please contact: Gilberte Mayo, Deputy Tax Collector at 826-2050
     Curbside pickup is scheduled on Friday. The rubbish service requests that you have your household trash put out by 7 AM to ensure pick up. Please do your best to make sure you have animal-proof containers to avoid having critters whether wild or domestic strewing trash around the neighborhood. The rubbish service workers are not responsible for cleaning up any scattered trash.
     The landfill closed for the winter on October 28th. It will reopen in May 2018. Universal Waste (TV’s, computers & components, florescent & energy saving bulbs & like electrical items) may be disposed of at the town office during regular business hours during the winter months.
