Village of Quogue Property Taxes

Many residents have read of Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order issued last Friday afternoon to authorize the acceleration of the issuance of tax warrants not usually issued until January 1 and, in instances of prepayment, authorize partial payments. For practical purposes, this Executive Order only impacts municipalities with a January 1 fiscal year that normally collect taxes in the month of January. The Village of Quogue has a fiscal year that commences on June 1. Therefore, the Governor’s Executive Order does not apply to the Village, and we cannot accept prepayment of fiscal year 2018-2019 taxes, the amount of which will not be determined until next spring. The Town of Southampton issued its property tax bills (which also include Quogue School District and Library taxes) earlier this month. Although the first half of those taxes is not due until January 10, 2018, as in the past they may be prepaid in full during December 2017.

DEC issues beach nourshiment permit to the Village

On July 11, 2016, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation issued a permit to the Village of Quogue authorizing it to undertake a beach nourishment project in accordance with the application submitted on behalf of the Village in 2011. The permit expires on March 31, 2026 and is subject to a number of conditions, including submission of updated plans to the DEC at least 30 days prior to project commencement. The issuance of the permit does not require that the Village undertake a project, and, as has been stated many times, the issue will be subject to further discussion among members of the Board of Trustees and with residents at forums to be announced in the future.
