Q: What is the difference between the Village of Ellenville and the Town of Wawarsing?

A: The Village of Ellenville is an incorporated village within the Town of Wawarsing.

Q: What does that mean?

A: Many towns and cities have villages or sections of the community that are referred to as villages but most of them are not incorporated villages. In New York, an incorporated village is a legal municipality. Incorporated villages have elected governments which have the authority to raise taxes and institute and enforce municipal laws. Under state law, incorporated village governments have all the same rights and responsibilities as town and city governments. However, incorporated villages must also be associated with a town. As long as both sides agree, villages and towns may each have their own municipal services or they may share some or all of them.
