Annual Parking Permit Information

Annual Parking Permit Changes 

On December 15, 2020, the Board of Trustees voted to re-set the annual parking permit calendar to conform to the fiscal year beginning June 1 for all annual permits. Going forward, all annual permits will be valid from June 1 through May 31 of the following year.

Parking Permit Applications

We have instituted a new online system for parking permit applications and payments. If you are able to purchase your permit online, please do so. We are still trying to limit in-person contact for staff and residents. Beginning May 3rd, if you are unable to apply for your permit online, you will be able to come to the window in the Administrative offices on the second floor of Village Hall, 112 Main Street between 8:30am and 12pm for assitance. You will still need to fill out your application online at the computer in the vestibule, but someone will be available to assist you. 

If you are having trouble or have questions about applying for a permit online, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions. If you still have questions, you can call (914) 231-8564.
