The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and the unprecedented measures taken to contain it, including the closing of non-essential businesses, has put financial stress on many residents of the Village of Croton-on-Hudson and communities around the country. Village of Croton’s Board of Trustees would like to support those struggling under these extraordinary circumstances while fulfilling our obligation to protect the public purse.
At Monday’s meeting of the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to authorize the Village Treasurer to waive any and all penalties that would be accrued for late payment of the March 15, 2020, utility bills through June 12, 2020.
This grace period shall apply to those accounts in Tiers 1 through 4 of the water rate schedule (all ratepayers using between 1 and 250,000 cubic feet per quarter). Penalties will begin accruing on June 15, 2020.
In person payment of utility bills is suspended due to COVID-19.
Checks should be made payable to the Village of Croton-on-Hudson and can be mailed to the address on the front of the bill. Alternatively, payments can be made online by either credit card or ACH at crotononhudson-ny.gov by selecting “online payments” button on the homepage.
There is an additional service fee for payment by credit card. Payment via check or ACH is FREE.
These are trying times and the most serious challenges are likely to come. The Board of Trustees will continue to work to keep our community together and do what we can to support those who have been affected by economic or other hardship.
Brian Pugh, Mayor
