Latest News

The Town of Dryden will be conducting a dog enumeration beginning September 1, 2016. The Dog Control Officers will visit all town residences to verify that all dogs are licensed as required by New York State. Dog licensing verifies that a dog has a current rabies vaccine and assists the Dog Control Officers in their efforts to return a lost dog.

To avoid an enumeration fee in addition to the regular licensing fees, please make sure your dog is licensed as soon as possible. It is quite easy and the Clerk’s Office is happy to help. To apply, simply mail (or stop by) the Town Clerk’s office with an application, a current rabies certificate and proof of spay/neuter, if applicable. Applications are available on the Town’s website dryden.ny.us/town-clerks-office/dog and at the Clerk’s office located at 93 East Main Street, Dryden.

If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk at 844-8888, option 3.

Town Board Response re: May 3rd Referendum Vote

DRYDEN TOWN BOARD

Statement on May 3rd Special Town Election

May 4, 2016

 

Registered voters in the Town of Dryden decided yesterday, by a margin of 1188 to 936, not to purchase a 15 acre undeveloped parcel located on Pinckney Road and Fall Creek.   The Town Board is pleased with the strong turnout and is proud of the town’s administration of the special referendum, which was planned and conducted with the utmost professionalism.   The Board is especially grateful to the Town Clerk, Bambi Avery, and her staff for their efforts in implementing the Board’s plan for this referendum.   While it’s clear there is a need for more recreational opportunities throughout the town, it’s also clear that majority of voters prefer the town not to acquire this particular parcel for that purpose.   The Board commends residents for expressing their views and participating in the referendum.   Results of this vote will help guide the Board in future decisions concerning the enhancement of recreational opportunities.   The Board is hopeful that another purchaser can be found who will be a good steward of the Pinckney Road parcel, and looks forward to assisting in that effort.
