A group of Halcott homeowners have a group pricing program for propane. This is a great cooperative effort that could save you a lot of money! Here’s the 2017 update:
Propane Group Discounts Renewed
The Halcott Center Propane Buying Group’s current non-pre-buy, non-contract rate is $1.80 per gallon. Pre-buy contract customers have been mailed contracts which must be received by Suburban by August 11. The “Circle of Friends” offer continues: 35 free gallons for each auto delivery customer who brings in another.

Dear Friends: The Town Board is continuing to work on an emergency plan that will be effective for future needs. As we explore different scenarios, and re-visit the Irene disaster of August, 2011, we are more and more aware that the single most important need for our town is better communication. We are looking into various options, but one tool already available to us is Greene County’s Emergency Notification System called Code Red.
The Halcott Town Board has asked that you be made aware of the following:
1. Should you witness any ATV abuse, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office asks that you contact them as soon as possible. You may call 518-943-3300 or the cell phone of Greg Seeley, our Sheriff: 518-821-0257. Last Monday night, the Sheriff and two deputies came to Halcott to answer questions about the use and misuse of ATVs. We are far from the rest of Greene County, and so the response time for ATV problems can be slow. They welcome the chance, however, of patrolling the Town if we can give them some guidance on patterns and habits of illegal ATV activity.
2. On another note: the Grange building will be sprayed for cluster flies on Tuesday, October 24th. Therefore, the building will be locked from 12 noon until 6PM. Any questions may be directed to Pete and Nancy Ballard, 254-4141.
New legislation requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years. Please follow this link to renew your Basic STAR exemption:

If you haven’t experienced the new open WiFi internet service at the Grange prepare to be pleased. It’s fast, reliable and a lot closer than the Skene Library. Many thanks to Margaretville Telephone Company and all the town’s people who worked hard to make this happen.
