Thanks for your cooperation!!
To apply for a fire pit permit, go to the Fire Department Monday through Friday between the hours of 8am and 4pm. You will receive a copy of the Open Burning Ordinance and be scheduled for your inspection once the application is complete. Please remember! If you are a tenant, the owner will need to sign and notarize the application or show up in person with the applicant to sign. Once the application is complete and the inspection is scheduled, bring the application to the City Clerk’s Office to pay the $25 permit fee. The City Clerk will keep the application and issue a receipt that the payment was made. The inspector will bring the permit with them and will sign and issue the approved permit at the time of inspection. Please remember! The inspection is to ensure that the fire pit is a minimum of 15 feet away from any combustible material such as homes, fencing, garages, sheds etc. If the fire pit does not meet this criteria then the inspection will not pass. The $25 fee is nonrefundable for denied permits. Please contact the Gloversville Fire Department for any questions: (518) 725-3124

The Board of Review consists of 5 members, who reside in the City of Gloversville. The Board of Assessment Review’s sole purpose is to guarantee taxpayer’s rights by hearing real property assessment complaints (Grievances) and arriving at fair and impartial determinations regarding those complaints. The Board members are appointed by the Mayor for 5 year terms. The Assessment Board of Review hears complaints on Grievance Day, which is normally the fourth Tuesday in May each year. The hours are generally 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM. These hours may be extended depending on the number of complaints that need to be heard. Newly appointed and re-appointed Board Members are required to take a 3 hour instruction course, which is usually given in early May. The Board may be called upon to meet again if any changes need to be made to the Tentative or Final Roll after Grievance Day. There is also a “Fall Board of Review” set up if any business needs to be conducted to correct the roll at that time. Please note that no new applications may be accepted by the public at these adjourned hearings.
