GENERAL INFORMATION

There are two Town Justices in the Town of Amenia who are elected to 4 year terms.  Currently Norman Moore and James J. Devine are serving as the Town of Amenia Justices.  The Town Justices deal with criminal and civil litigation arising within the town limits.  The justices can also perform civil marriage ceremonies.

On the civil side, the Courts hears actions seeking monetary awards up to $3,000 and small claims proceedings for awards up to $3,000. The court also handles landlord/tenant matters that may result in an eviction as well as a money judgment for back rent that is due.

Town Courts are best known for their small claims parts. Small claims proceedings are intended to provide a low-cost, simplified and informal procedure for individuals to resolve disputes involving limited monetary claims. Often individual litigants do not use an attorney in these matters and are not required to do so.

On the criminal side, the court is authorized to handle matters involving the prosecution of misdemeanors and violations that are committed within the towns or villages geographic boundaries.

The Town of Amenia Court also conducts arraignments and preliminary hearings in felony matters. In addition, these courts hear Vehicle and Traffic Law misdemeanors and traffic infractions.

Town Justices are required to be on-call 24 hours a day and are often called upon to arraign misdemeanor and felony charges as well as to act as Family Court judges when Family Court is not in session. In cases involving domestic violence, the judges are also authorized to issue orders of protection.

 

There are two Court Clerks who can answer questions about court procedures but cannot give legal advice.  The Clerk collects fines and responds to requests for documents such as certificates of disposition.  The Court Office is located in Town Hall.  Maureen Moore is the Court Clerk for Hon. Norman Moore and she can be reached at 845-373-7017 or via email. Dawn Marie Klingner is the Court Clerk for Hon. James J. Devine and she can be reached at 845-373-8434 or via email.

CIVIL COURT

The Town of Amenia Court hears formal civil cases when either the Plaintiff or the Defendant resides in, is employed in or has a place of business within the Town.

Defendants are not guaranteed legal representation in civil court as they are in criminal court but may retain legal representation.  People with low income may wish to contact Legal Services of the Hudson Valley which is funded, in part, by the US Department of Health and Human Service, the New York State Office for the Aging, and Westchester County.

VEHICLE AND TRAFFIC COURT

Cases charging the commission of a traffic infraction within the town limits are filed in the Town of Amenia Justice Court. Information regarding how to proceed with a traffic ticket may be found on the ticket issued to the motorist. If the motorist responds by pleading not guilty, the Court Clerk will schedule a pre trial conference hearing. The Court conducts non-jury or bench trials for violations, offenses and vehicle and traffic cases. If the motorist pleads guilty by mail, a fine letter will be issued that instructs the defendant on procedure and amount of payment.

SMALL CLAIMS COURT

The Court hears small claims cases up to a maximum amount of $3000 when the Defendant resides in, is employed in, or has a place of business within the Town. Individuals and sole proprietors of businesses may bring a suit against an individual, corporation, partnership, association or assignee in Small Claims Court by filing a claim with the Court. There is a filing fee of $10 for claims up to $1000 and $15 for claims up to $3000. You may not file a claim in Small Claims Court for over $3000.

Small Claims Court is intended to provide a simple, informal and inexpensive procedure for prompt determination of small claims. The hearings are conducted in a way that ensures justice according to law without requiring a detailed knowledge of courtroom procedures or rules.  Small Claims Handbook

LANDLORD / TENANT COURT

The Court also hears Summary Proceedings/Evictions when the property and the Respondent are located within the Town. These proceedings include non payment of rent or holdover evictions. Plaintiffs may claim the full amount in dispute as there is no limit on the amount of the claim for which the Court has civil jurisdiction in such cases.

The Court hears both residential and commercial landlord/tenant cases.  http://nycourthelp.gov/diy/districtCityTownVillagecourts.html

CRIMINAL COURT

The Town of Amenia Court hears criminal cases originating within the Town and has full jurisdiction for non-felony cases (misdemeanors and violations) to accept guilty pleas or hold trials. On felony charges, the court conducts the arraignment and preliminary inquiry and may set bail or hold without bail. If the charges are not reduced to misdemeanors, the Town Court transfers them to Dutchess County Court for final disposition. The Town Court may not accept pleas in felony cases.

Defendants have the right to legal counsel and to choose a jury trial or non-jury trial for misdemeanor cases. The Dutchess County Public Defender's Office provides legal services to criminal defendants who have been determined to be indigent.

Recreation Liaison

One or more members of the Town Board are always designated as the Recreation Liaisons.  This was done to streamline communications between the Recreation Commission and the Town Board. 

Recreation Department

This department consists of paid employees, hired by the Town Board, who work together with the Recreation Commission in order to help them fulfill their mission. 


Volunteers

Amenia Recreation has always been fortunate to have a very dedicated group of volunteers.  If enough volunteers are not available costs rise, programs are negatively impacted or can sometimes be dropped completely.  If you have an interest in a particular program (even if it doesn't exist), have some time and are willing to help contact any member of the Recreation Administration.  Your help is always needed and appreciated.  Thanks!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

I never received my bill or I received it late, do I still have to pay the penalty?

Yes. Failure to mail a statement or the failure of the property owner to receive a statement will not affect the validity of the taxes or penalty as dictated by law (New York State Real Property Tax Law §922).  The Tax Collector does not have the legal authority to waive statutory penalty charges, nor does any other official.  These regulations are governed by the Real Property Tax Law.  If the collector waives any penalty he/she will be held personally responsible.  All records are audited by State examiners and there is no discretion in this matter.

 

If I mail my payment on the due date, do I have to pay a penalty?

"  The provisions of this section shall not apply in the case of postmarks not made by the United States Post Office.  A postage meter postmark is not a postmark made by the United States Post Office and will not be honored according the provisions of Real Property Tax Law §925.

 

Payments received after the due date will be returned for proper payment to include the appropriate penalty.  No town official or employee can waive the penalty.

I would like to tell you a little bit about the Office of the Town Clerk, and about my duties and responsibilities as Amenia’s Town Clerk.

You may not realize it, but the Office of the Town Clerk has served as a direct link between residents and their local government since as far back as biblical times!

As many of you have already experienced, my office prides itself on having a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We are accessible to the public, answering resident’s questions and taking care of their town-related business needs. For your convenience, I am a Notary Public and offer this service to residents free of charge. Many of the Town Clerk’s duties are mandated by law but many more go well beyond those mandates as the Town Clerk also serves as a major source of information to all residents of Amenia.

My office issues all licenses - for example, hunting & fishing licenses, dog licenses, and marriage licenses, marriage and death transcripts, parking permits, FOIL requests and voter registrations to name just a few. The Town Clerk is also appointed Registrar of Vital Statistics and in this capacity I keep birth, death and marriage records, all of which are issued from my office. I am the custodian of all Town records and am responsible for the storage and disposition of active and inactive records. I am also responsible for keeping minutes of all Town Board meetings, and these minutes serve as the permanent, historic record of the Town. The Town Clerk has many duties related to billing and disbursing funds to the State, County and local fiscal officers and also assists with state and internal audits. These are some of the official duties my office is responsible for, and as you can see, the job is quite a complex one.

I welcome your questions and comments and want you to feel comfortable calling or stopping by my office at the Town Hall with any question you may have, especially if you aren’t sure where to go to get the answer. I can usually get the answer for you or point you in the right direction. You can e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the office at (845)373-8860 x125.

Applications for Freedom of Information Request (FOIL); Parking Permits, Genealogical Search, Dog License, Marriage and Death are available for download. Completed applications and fees may be mailed to Town Clerk, 4988 Route 22, Amenia NY 12501

Home Births

Public Health Law 4101 Charges the local Registrar with the enforcement of complete and accurate vital statistics registration. Therefore, before a home birth is registered, the local registrar must determine when, where and to whom the child was born.

Parents will be asked to provide positive identification, proof of residency, and supporting documentation from a prenatal or postnatal health care provider, the Department of Social Services or other government agency familiar with the family and the mother’s pregnancy. The local registrar may require that the parents and child personally appear at the registrar’s office.

In the case that the mother is not married, the putative father’s name may be entered on the birth certificate only if he and the mother submit a correctly executed Acknowledgement of Paternity (DOH-3732/DSS-4418). In accordance with Public Health Law 4130(2), a Certificate of Live Birth is to be filed with the local Registrar within five days of the date of birth. If more than one year has elapsed since the birth of the child, the registrar will process the birth as a “Delayed Birth”.

If a permit holder is notified that the permit has been revoked, he or she must return the permit to the issuing agent. If the permit is not returned by the specified date, local law enforcement personnel will be contacted to confiscate the permit.
