The first thing to understand is that the Town's fiscal year is January - December and the Village's fiscal year is June - May. This is important to help understand the transfer of functions explained below.
Street Lighting - Beginning January 2015 the responsibility of the streetlights transferred from the Town to the Village. It was determined that the Street Lighting District is located wholly within the Village's boundaries and this transfer of responsibility should have been done in January 2008 but was not. That has now been corrected. Your January 2015 Town taxes included twelve months of taxes for the street lighting, which the Town forwarded to the Village in mid-January 2015. Your June 2015 Village taxes includes the cost of the street lighting for five months (January 2016-May 2016). Your June 2016 tax bill will contain the full twelve months.
Highway Department - Beginning January 2016 the financial responsibility of the Highway Department will transfer from the Town to the Village. The Village became the owner of the roads January 2007. However, since efforts were being tried by the Village and Town Board to abolish the Village and consolidate with the Town, the fiscal responsibility stayed with the Town. Since the consolidation efforts have stopped by the Town Board, the Village now assumes its full legal responsibility for the roads. Your January 2015 Town taxes included twelve months of taxes for the Highway fund. Your June 2015 Village taxes included five month (Jan 2016 - May 2016) of taxes for the Highway. There was no double taxation occurring. In mid-January 2016 the Town will turn over to the Village any fund balance remaining in their possession. Please note - the Town will remain the owner of the property/building infrastructure that the Highway garage is located on and as such will still need to pay to insure the building/property. The Village will assume all other costs and expenses.
The Town and Village of Woodbury has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Woodbury officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire community.
