In response to several Town employees testing positive for COVID-19 over the past month we had a comprehensive disinfection of all Town Hall buildings and vehicles including the Town Police Department.  

Town Hall will re-open March 1st to the general public BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  We are asking Town residents to continue to utilize our website, the mail and our newly installed drop box which is located immediately to the right of the front door of Town Hall.  If it is necessary for you to physically enter Town Hall please call ahead of time so we can better manage visitors and protect both residents and Town Hall employees.  

Also, as the covid-19 vaccine has become available we understand that it has been very difficult to navigate through the registration process.  The TOMSTRONG Community Response Team has been mobilized once again to assist residents who need help.  If you are interested in receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine but are having trouble making an appointment please call 845-741-2835 and we will do all we can to help.  The Town of Montgomery does not have vaccines available we have simply created a helpline to assist town residents during this time.

Thank you for your understanding.  We all welcome and hope for a return to some semblance of normalcy in the coming months and year ahead.  If there is anything we can do to assist you please do not hesitate to contact us.

For the month of March access to Town Hall will remain limited.  We ask all residents who physically enter Town Hall to pay their taxes to instead utilize other options.  First, you can mail in your payment.  Second, you can drop your payment into the secured drop box outside of the front entrance of town hall.  Lastly, you can make your payment online by visiting the town website at and click on the “Property Tax Bills” tab. If you have any questions related to paying your tax bill please call 845-457-2600 - extension 9, then press 1.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

benedict2The Town of Montgomery has completed the Playground at Benedict Farm Park! The playground encompasses two different sections: one for children ages 2-5 years old, one for children 5-12 years old. This playground can accommodate over 100 children and is ADA compliant for children with disabilities. The playground equipment components will challenge children and provide beneficial physical fitness. 

Benedict Farm Park is located at 1675 State Route 17K and is equipped with portable sanitary facilities. There is an additional parking area that provides easy access to the playground.

This project began in 1999 with the purchase of this 102-acre property. Funding for this project was provided by the Orange County Community Development Block Grant Program, along with donations of services and materials from Bluestone Excavation, Taylor Recycling, Engineering Properties, Chemung Supply, Newburgh Winwater, Scott's Corner Hardware and the Town of Montgomery Highway Department. Thank you for making this project a reality for the children!benedict3


Signs at Benedict Farm Park

The "Better Site Design" project at the Benedict Farm Park was funded in part by a grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.  Implementation of stormwater management practices are reflected in the education handouts and available for you to print out.  Please view these documents which were made available through this grant and may be downloaded as 8.5" x 11" handouts.  The attached documents were made into signs and may be viewed at the park in the kiosk located by the Wallkill River.
