Oneida County, NY

Welcome to the Town of Trenton Website.

Information is presented here designed to help those of you who already live in our beautiful community in your business with our municipal government - and for those of you who don't know what it's like to live in what we believe is one of the greatest communities in the area, there's information here to show you why we can make that claim.

Over time, more information will be added to meet both goals. Please visit again soon.

2016 Tentative Assessment Roll
July 05, 2016
Because of lack of interest, we are "pulling the plug" on the Lancaster trip. I am sorry this did not work out because it was a really great trip and well worth the money. We will try to do something similar in the
future. Thanks to those of you who were interested and supportive.
We still have openings for the Mystery Trip on July 26, leaving Barneveld at 11 am and returning approx. 6 pm. The cost is $54 and is due at time of registration. This trip is available to non-members as
well. Call me at 315-373-1960 if you are interested.
Also, don't forget to let me know if you are interested in either the shingles shot or the Prevnar (once and done) pneumonia shot. Hope to have the clinics in the near future.
