Message to Residents:

Gil Piaquadio Welcomes you to the official website of the Town of Newburgh.
The Town of Newburgh is a diverse community of people from rural, suburban, and urban
cultures. We have a collage of farms and orchards, rural neighborhoods, and well-defined
housing development communities. This is combined with a vibrant business district that
supplies the products and services we desire while providing a viable commercial tax base
to offset the real property taxes to our residents. It is this diversity that makes the
Town of Newburgh is a desirable place to both live and work.  
It is the mission of the Town of Newburgh elected officials, their employees, and agents to
provide superior and improving services while controlling the tax burden on their local
businesses. We continue to attract new businesses to our community to enhance
the products available to our residents and expand our commercial tax base.
The Town of Newburgh is continually striving to improve and maintain the quality of life
for its residents. The new water filtration plant capable of filtering 6 Million gallons

per day located at the Delaware Aqueduct Tap has been completed. 

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving as your Town Supervisor.
Gil Piaquadio
