Welcome to the Town of Halfmoon

On behalf of the Town of Halfmoon and the Halfmoon Town Board, I would like to welcome you to our website. Halfmoon was founded in 1788 and is a scenic community with a current population of over 20,000 residents. Halfmoon offers the “best of everything”. We are a growing community with excellent educational institutions, friendly neighborhoods, numerous historical sites, Senior Programs and recreational trails and parks that have many activities for individuals of all ages.

I hope you find our web site informative, user friendly and convenient. It is constantly being updated and improved and is intended to be your source to obtain useful information about Town Programs, Town Meetings agendas and minutes, Committee Meetings, Town Forms and more. You will also find a Halfmoon Business Directory which we hope encourages you to patronize our Halfmoon Business.



Although not in the Town of Halfmoon,the Town of Colonie Landfill has submitted an application to NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to expand the use of the landfill for another 20 years and the size of the Colonie Landfill.  If you have concerns or questions regarding the proposed expansion/extension of the Colonie Landfill, please see the links below with information recently distributed to Town residents in close proximity to the Colonie Lanfill.

The information included a letter advising residents of a Public Hearing for the proposed expansion/extension, along with a Notice of the Public Hearing from the New York State Department of the Environmental Conservation. Also included was a letter from the New York State Department of Army Corps asking the Town of Halfmoon to respond to its request for a Public Hearing and the Town of Halfmoon's response to that request. Letters to the Colonie Landfill advising the Town resident's concerns regarding odor and requesting balloons indicating the proposed height are also available for your reference.

Please feel free to contact the Supervisor's Office with any questions you may have on this matter. Updates will be posted  on the website as they become available.


As always, if we can be of service to you, please feel free to contact me personally or a member of our Town Team.


With Best Regards, Kevin J Tollisen, Halfmoon Town Supervisor
