Below is the draft of the Town Comprehensive Plan that has been developed over the past year by a committee of Town residents. After approval from the Planning Board, the Town Board will be approving the Plan later this year.
Smithfield Eaton Volunteer Ambulance Corp. (SEVAC) is now an Ambulance Taxing District, People in the town of Eaton (not those in Eaton Fire District) will have a tax starting next January of 2021. This replaces the dollar amount that the Town of Eaton budgeted for each year.

On Tuesday, August 14th, 2018 the Town of Eaton held a public hearing on the proposed local law that will require septic inspections upon the sale or transfer of title of any property around the lakes in our town. The Town Board will take into consideration the suggestions made at the Public Hearing and vote in October on the proposed local law. I want to thank the over 35 people who attended the public hearing to share their ideas,thoughts and concerns. A link to the local law presented is still at the bottom of this page.
