From the Supervisor’s message:

Central New York Has been given the green light to start to reopen businesses.  Phase 1 of the Governor’s plan allows manufacturing and construction companies as well as some retail stores who do carry out and delivery.  We are hopeful that in 2 weeks, we will begin Phase 2 which includes Professional services, restaurants, hair salons, barbershops and more.  Go on the Madison County website to get details on what is open and information on restarting your business.

SOMETIME THIS WEEK (May 18-22) we will be receiving additional hand sanitizers and masks to distribute.  We will be distributing them to local businesses that are now open and probably have a drive thru as well.  When we receive them, we will set up a time to get out to you.

The Memorial Day parade scheduled For Monday, May 25th has been cancelled.  The American Legion will be doing a ceremony at the Eaton Cemetery that will be shown on YouTube.   

The Town of Eaton will be closed for the remainder of the month.  We will open again on June 1.  Our Highway Department Is now open and working.

If you have questions, please 684-9111 and follow the prompts to the appropriate office.  Employees will be checking their messages from home and will get back to you as soon as possible.


Below is the link to the 2019 Town of Eaton Comprehensive Plan that was approved by the Town Board at the November meeting.

2019 Comprehensive Plan


Smithfield Eaton Volunteer Ambulance Corp. (SEVAC) is now an Ambulance Taxing District,  People in the town of Eaton (not those in Eaton Fire District and not Village residents) will have a tax starting next January of 2021.  This replaces the dollar amount that the Town of Eaton budgeted for each year.

On Tuesday, August 14th, 2018 the Town of Eaton held a public hearing on the proposed local law that will require septic inspections upon the sale or transfer of title of any property around the lakes in our town. The Town Board will take into consideration the suggestions made at the Public Hearing and vote in October on the proposed local law. I want to thank the over 35 people who attended the public hearing to share their ideas,thoughts and concerns. A link to the local law presented is still at the bottom of this page.
