 About Us
Village Municipality
The Village of Sloatsburg, a municipality in Rockland County, was incorporated on October 7, 1929.  The Village of Sloatsburg is located in the 18th Congressional, the 36th State Senatorial, the 88th State Assembly, and the 7th, 8th and 17th County Legislative districts.
 

Government
Sloatsburg operates under New York State's Village Law, General Municipal Law, and Local Finance Law, as well as Municipal Home Rule Law and the Statute of Local Governments, which grants home rule power. Except for certain required village functions, the government operates as a village pursuant to Village Law.

The Village is governed by a Mayor and Board of Trustees.  The Mayor makes all appointments which are ratified by the Board.  The Clerk/Treasurer is appointed by the Mayor and supervises all Village operations through appointed department heads. Since the Village of Sloatsburg has been incorporated as a Village, the same officers govern both. This dual functioning avoids duplication of government services and costs.

Area and Land Distribution
The Village of Sloatsburg, comprising approximately 2.5 square miles, is primarily residential, consisting almost exclusively of single-family, detached homes.  Zoning became effective in the mid fifties with the adoption of the Village’s master plan and zoning ordinance.  Sloatsburg is bounded on the east by the Harriman State Park, on the west by the New Jersey State Park, to the south by the State of New Jersey and north to the finger lakes region.
