As Mayor of the Village of Central Square, I would like to welcome you to the village website. I encourage you to give us feedback, share events, photos and the stories that make our village a community. There is a positive energy in our village and I hope to see it continue to increase participation in government, support for our schools, visiting our parks and enjoying the many events scheduled throughout the year. We realize a balanced quality of life goes beyond our village limits. You will notice links to services offered that can benefit our residents. Central Square is a great community to live, work and play. We are excited about responsible growth, reliable and quality service, and safe living. Enjoy!
Mayor Randy House
Welcome to Central Square, New York
A MESSAGE FROM OUR MAYOR
What do I get for my village tax dollars?
Living in the Village of Central Square comes with an expectation of a better standard of living and quality of life. The Village takes this seriously. Your village tax dollars help support contracts with our ambulance company - Menter, our library and the Town of Hastings and the services they provide. Tax dollars also help maintain the Summer Recreation Program, Parks, Community Events, sidewalks & roads, village staff & offices, Part-time Police Department, Court System, street lighting and Christmas decorations. Obviously this is just a short list of all we get for our tax dollars as part of living in the village.
Each year our village offices receive hundreds of calls regarding our court including; when is court, what time, how and where do I pay my fine, etc. Our village court is separate from our village office so please direct all court related calls to our court clerk at (315) 668-8228. Contacting the village offices or leaving a message there unfortunately will not be able to answer your questions or get you through any quicker.
