Village Tax Reminder!
We are reminding residents that your second half VBM tax bill is due on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2024, without penalty. If you have any questions, you can go online (www.briarcliffmanor.gov) or call our Tax Department at (914) 944-2723.
Call for Volunteers.
The Board is reviewing previously received applications within the last year and still seeking additional resumes for several open positions and volunteer committees that help our Village run. We are indeed "hiring," although none of these are paid positions in the traditional sense. The compensation comes from the warm feelings of respect and appreciation you'll get from your neighbors, your family, your children. Your grandparents will get to brag about you, even if you never went to med school or never won a Nobel Prize. We have openings on the following committees (click on the links for more info about committee missions, typical meeting times, and qualifications:
Any resident of the Village can apply for consideration by completing the online form here: https://www.briarcliffmanor.gov/.../Board-Member...
Be sure to upload a resume -- just like a real job! -- and we thank you, in advance, for your willingness to serve your community. It may be the most rewarding job you will not be paid for.
Peddling and Soliciting.
Any resident who does not wish to allow solicitors onto their property may enroll their address onto the Village of Briarcliff Manor’s “Do Not Solicit List” by going directly to: https://www.briarcliffmanor.gov/FormCenter/General-Forms-4/Village-of-Briarcliff-Manor-Do-Not-Solic-48. If a solicitor/peddler enters onto your property contact the Police Department at (914) 941-2130. Please be advised that religious and political organizations are not subject to the Village’s Do Not Solicit rules.

Safety Tips To Get Ahead of the Winter Freeze.
The Fire Chief would like to share some safety tips to help you prepare for the Winter season. It’s not too early to begin preparing for the heating season. Check these 10 tips off your list and get ahead of the Winter freeze.
- Our furnace has been inspected and serviced by a qualified professional during the last 12 months. (A furnace should be serviced at least once a year.)
- Our chimneys and vents have been cleaned and inspected by a qualified professional. I have checked for creosote built-up. (Not cleaning your chimney is the leading cause of chimney fires from built up creosote. This service needs to be done at least once a year.)
- Our wood for our fireplace or wood stove is dry, seasoned wood.
- Our fireplace screen is metal or heat-tempered glass, in good condition and secure in its position in front of the fireplace.
- We have a covered metal container ready to use to dispose cooled ashes. (The ash container should be kept at least 10 feet from the home and any nearby buildings.)
- Our children know to stay at least 3 feet away from the fireplace, wood/pellet stove, oil stove or other space heaters.
- Our portable space heaters have an automatic shut-off.
- Our portable space heaters will be plugged directly into an outlet (not an extension cord) and placed at least three feet from anything that can burn; like bedding, paper, walls, and even people. (Place notes throughout your home to remind you to turn off portable heaters when you leave a room or go to bed.)
- We have tested our smoke alarms and made sure they are working. (You need smoke alarms on every level of the home, inside each sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. For the best protection, the smoke alarms should be interconnected so when one sounds, they all sound.)
- We have tested our carbon monoxide alarms and made sure they are working. (Carbon monoxide alarms should be located outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home.)
