The following was adopted by the Kirkwood Town Board on October 6, 2020:


It is a New York State Attorney General ruling that mailboxes and private property that are placed in the public right of way, are not subject to repair by the municipality. In most instances, mailboxes are damaged due to the heavy snow and ice as it is being removed from the roadway.

The Town will repair or replace mailboxes and posts only if, after an inspection by the DPW, the Town has deemed the damage was caused by the negligent operation of our plows.  If the Town determines that your mailbox was damaged during the course of normal snow removal activities, or due to a rotten post, or rusted box, repairs will not be made.

If the Town of Kirkwood does need to replace a damaged Mailbox or Post it will be replaced with a standard metal mailbox with a 4” pressure treated post. Due to frozen ground, it may be necessary to place a temporary mailbox and post so that you can still get your mail until proper repairs can be made.

Fancy or special mailboxes will not be replaced; therefore, for the winter season you may want to replace your mailbox with a standard one.

In an effort to control the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our residents and employees, Broome County Real Property will no longer offer off-site collection for school or property tax payments in any of the towns. Off-site tax collection offices will be centralized at the Oakdale Mall, former Sears building and the Broome County Office, Edwin L. Crawford Building. Both locations will have a drop-box available for payments as well. The former Sears location will open Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm for collection of current taxes only, September and October for school tax payments and January through March for property tax payments, for the districts and towns that Broome County Real Property collects taxes for.

The Broome County Office location will continue to collect both current and delinquent taxes year-round. 

These changes take effect September 1, 2020 and will apply to the following school districts: Binghamton City School and Sunrise Terrace, Chenango Forks, Chenango Valley, Deposit Central School, Harpursville, Johnson City, Maine-Endwell, Susquehanna Valley, Union-Endicott and Whitney Point School Districts. In January, the following towns: Binghamton, Chenango, Conklin, Dickinson, Fenton, Kirkwood, Nanticoke, Union, Windsor and the City of Binghamton.


The Town Hall is now open to the public.  You may utilize the black drop box located at the front door for dog license renewals and water/sewer payments if you prefer not to come into the building.  No cash - check or money order only.  If you need further assistance, call 775-1966 and leave a message.

Step 1: Determine eligibility and schedule an appointment. First, you should complete the Am I Eligible? App to check their eligibility and find vaccination locations near you where you can schedule an appointment, or call the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline. Note that due to limited supply from the federal government, it may be 12 or more weeks before an appointment is available to you.  

Step 2: Complete the Vaccine Form. Once and only once you have a confirmed appointment, you must complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form. This form can be completed online and you will receive a submission ID, or can be completed at your vaccination site. (We encourage New Yorkers to complete the form ahead of time.)

Step 3: Bring proof of eligibility to your appointment. When you go to your vaccination site for your appointment, you must bring proof of eligibility. This may include an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub, depending on the specific priority status. If you are eligible due to age, you should bring a form of ID (like a Driver's License or passport) that includes your date of birth.
