A dog census throughout the Village of East Aurora will begin Nov. 29 and continue through the spring of 2022.   The census is being conducted to determine the number of dogs harbored in the Village of East Aurora and to ensure that all dogs are licensed.

Enumerators (with Town of Aurora photo identification) will contact every residence and business in the Village of East Aurora. New York State Law requires all dogs four months of age and older to be licensed.  Dog licenses may be obtained at the Aurora Town Clerk’s office, 575 Oakwood Avenue, during regular business hours. For more information, call the Aurora Town Clerk’s office at 716-652-3280 or the Highway Department Dog Control at 716-652-4050.

The Aurora Town Board has approved its budget plan for 2022. The approved budget includes tax increases, but stays under the state mandated property tax cap. With its adoption, the tax rate for a property owner in the town outside the village will be $8.02 for every $1,000 assessed to a home. This is a 21-cent increase over last year. For village residents, the tax rate will be $3.76 for every $1,000 assessed to a home. This is a 13-cent increase. Councilwoman Susan Friess said she felt the rate increases were manageable for town residents. A town resident with a home having a market value of nearly $350,000 would see town taxes increase overall by $21 a year.  And a village resident with a similarly valued home would see a $13 increase over last year  in taxes.
