Village of Greene, New York

 

The Village of Greene is one of the best places on earth to live. Stroll through our picturesque downtown and stop in to say hello.  It’s all here; a small community that throughout its history has pulled together and moves forward in times of prosperity and times of disaster.   We welcome you.

The Village’s government is made up of the Mayor and four members of the Board of Trustees each having a two-year term.  We offer our residents municipal electric, water, wastewater treatment, police department, fire department, maintained streets, and sidewalks, all at a sensible price and with a reasonable tax rate.  We maintain our unique character through a Planning Board and a Zoning Board of Appeals.   Much of our downtown is on the National Registry for Historic Buildings.  We have over 15 committed and dedicated employees that keep our Village in top-notch condition, running smoothly and providing excellent services to our residents.

 

A History Of The Village Office And Board Room

Built in 1886 it housed the Fire Department on the west side and Village Offices on the east side.  In 1882 the Opera House on the second floor was constructed.    In 1888 the Village clock was placed in the belfry where one still remain that chimes the hour.  In spring of 1964 the fire department equipment was moved to the Village Highway Department/ Fire Department building on North Canal Street.   In 1966 the Village Offices were expanded to the entire first floor.  The second floor remained the fire department rooms used for meetings and other functions until 2006 when a new building was built on the site of the old Highway Department.  In 1966 the façade of the Village Offices was re-modeled with a brick front, in 1998 the brick was removed and new wood and larger window were installed with the appearance of an original storefront, which is how it remains today.   Teresa Thurston is our Village Clerk.
