In the event that you need your Certificate of Occupancy, prior to paving, you may post a bond as a "promise" to the Town that you will complete this requirement.
Bond for a 30 Feet Driveway Apron
For a 30 feet driveway apron bond a $600 check made payable to "Town of Hyde Park" will be needed. $500 is returnable after the paving is complete. The $100 is a non-refundable filing fee. (No interest is received on these funds).
Bond for Paving the Entire Driveway
A $1,100 check made payable to "Town of Hyde Park" will be needed. $1,000 is returnable after the paving is complete. The $100 is a nonrefundable filing fee. (No interest is received on these funds).
Return of Bonds
When your requirement is completed, contact the Highway Department at 845-229-9416. The Highway Superintendent will inspect the driveway and the paperwork will be processed to return your bond. The Town Board, which meets twice a month, will need to approve the return of your bond. The Comptroller's office, who processes checks once a month, will issue the return of your bond.
Checks are mailed to the applicant at the applicant's address listed on the original driveway permit, unless the Highway Department is notified otherwise.
