              NEW YORK 



WELCOME!  Galway is a town located in Saratoga County, New York.  As of the 2010 census, the town had a total population of 3,545. The town contains a village also named Galway. Both the town and village are located in the western part of the county. Galway is a rural community with a mixture of small business, farming, and residential homes. The town is home to both year round and seasonal residents. It was originally named New Galloway after Galloway in Scotland. When the town was incorporated, however, it was incorrectly recorded as Galway. Although the spelling is the same as Galway, Ireland, it is not pronounced the same.

From the Assessor
March 08, 2018

As you are probably aware, the Assessor's Office has begun the process for conducting a revaluation project in the Town.  A public information meeting was held on February 28th at which time information about the possible ramifications and process of such a project were explained.  It was explained the purpose for this project is to regain equity in the Town and make sure all propoerty owenrs are paying their fair share of taxes.   It is not to raise more tax money.


The first step in the project will be to send out data mailers to all property owners (except vacant land owners) in May of this year.  Once you receive this information, please review it, make any corrections necessary and return the form to my office by the deadline (June 15, 2018).  Once this information has been input, field review will begin.  When I am in the field, I will be in a care that is clearly marked and identified as the Town of Galway Assessor.  We will be checking data and updating pictures as necessary.


This project will not affect taxes until school taxes September, 2019 and Town/County taxes of 2020.  There will be ample time for discuss with this office if you feel your information is not correct.


More information regarding this project will be forthcoming.  Please feel free to contact me at 518-882-6070 ext. 17 if you have concerns or questions regarding this project.  Thank you  Vicky Hayner, Assessor
