The upcoming Town-wide free curbside bulk waste pickup will kick off next Monday on April 13th. The Town has been divided into three geographic zones. Each zone will have its own designated date when residents should bring their items to the curb.
Click on Barney Road Tee Times to pay for and schedule your tee times up to seven days in advance.
The Barney Road Golf Course will officially open on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at 10:00 AM for the 2020 season with newly instituted COVID-19 safety measures.
In order to reduce personal interaction between golfers and staff, golfers are being directed to pre-pay their greens fees prior to their arrival at the course. Golfers can go to www.cliftonpark.org where there will be a link to direct them where to pay with instructions.
The Clifton Park Town Board reminds residents that a curbside bulk waste pickup will be offered again this Spring during the months of April and May. For several consecutive years the Town of Clifton Park had conducted a curbside bulk waste pick-up for the benefit of its residents. After a lower participation in 2014, it was decided that the Town would provide this free service to residents in alternating years.
The Clifton Park Town Board reminds everyone that County Waste will once again be conducting free, curbside yard waste pick-up service for Clifton Park residents in 2020. The service will be offered beginning March 30th through the end of November weather permitting.
Due to further mandates from New York State regarding workforce levels, all Town buildings are closed to public access effective immediately except by appointment.
Those wishing to make an appointment may call the Town Hall at (518) 371-6651. Their call will either be directed to the appropriate department or they may leave a message.
Individuals with mail for Town Departments may deposit it in the mail slot between the doors at the entrance to the Town Clerk’s Office. This entrance is on the Southeast section of Town Hall.
The Town has a large and expanding parks and recreational network for everyone to enjoy throughout the year. Many parks are conveniently located within our neighborhoods. Many people are home and the early Spring weather has led to an increased use of our park facilities and trail network. Preserving these vital outlets for recreation and exercise is especially important during this stressful time period.
Together, we can use the park facilities safely by following all CDC guidelines and New York State edicts regarding social distancing. Guidelines such as not congregating in groups and not participating in recreational activities that involve team play. The Town has thousands of acres of public recreational property. Please use discretion when visiting one of our parks.
During this extraordinary time, the Clifton Park Sewer Department would like to remind all residents on public or private sanitary sewer systems that ONLY toilet paper is acceptable to be flushed down the toilet. Flushable wipes, paper based shop towels, fabric reinforced sanitizing wipes, clothing of any kind ARE NOT acceptable to be flushed down the toilets. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Clifton Park Sewer Department at 518-348-7313.
