Handicapped Parking Permits
The Town of Cornwall Town Clerk’s Office issues Handicapped Parking Permits to Town residents who meet New York State criteria for disabilities.
Forms are available in our office or click the following link and you can download an application at http://nysdmv.com/forms/mv6641-mv6643.pdf , which you can take to your Medical Doctor to fill out and sign. We will also accept a note from your doctor on his letterhead that fully explains your medical disability.
Your doctor must also specify whether you have a permanent disability or a temporary disability.
Temporary Handicapped Parking Permits expire in six months from the date of issue. If after 6 months your doctor determines that you still require Handicapped Parking privileges, he must re-issue a medical note or fill out another application in order for you to get a new temporary permit.
Permanent Handicapped Parking Permits last for 5 years. You will receive notification to renew your permit or you may stop in our office just prior to your expiration date. You do not need to return to your doctor and get any further medical certification.
Please bring the completed application along with your driver’s license to our office. The permit is issued to you, not your car. It may be taken with you and used in any motor vehicle in which you are traveling.
If you have any questions about Handicapped Parking Permits, please call our office at (845)-534-9100.
