HARRISON, N.Y. Town Clerk Jackie Greer said that town revenues out of her office have remained steady over the past year.
According to the town clerks monthly report for February, Harrison raised $12,754.51 in revenue from services provided by the clerks office. Nearly three-quarters of the revenue was raised through selling annual parking permits, which the town made nearly $8,000 from. But Greer said that the money raised from parking permits is highest in January when people need to renew them and might drop as the year progresses.
We expect parking permits to remain steady year after year, Greer said. Parking is more seasonal. We could sell 30 permits at $600 apiece in January because the permits are expiring.
The town clerks office also issued two licenses for film companies to shoot in town, which brought in $3,000. According to the monthly report, dog registrations and annual passes to the towns new dog park brought in an additional $1,000. In total, 17 residents and five non-residents bought these passes.
Our dog park is starting to pick up, Greer said. Hopefully well be able to sell more passes as we move into the spring and summer months.
Additionally, three marriage licenses were sold for a total of $80.25. According to Greer, marriage licenses tend to pick up around this time of year as people begin buying them for their weddings in the spring and summer.
