Ellicottville is a community located in the Southern Tier of Western New York in the foothills of the Allegany Mountains.  It is best known for its Ski Resorts – Holiday Valley and Holimont – however, it is also a wonderful year-round destination and a great place to live. 

We’d like to welcome you to the Town/Village Hall which is situated in the heart of the Village of Ellicottville and conveniently houses both the Town and Village Clerk offices.  People often ask what the difference is between the Village and the Town.  In short, the Village encompasses one square mile inside the Town of Ellicottville and has its own governing body which is independent of the Town government.   It was created to provide the more densely populated Village residents with services that were not necessarily feasible for the less populated, rural community.  So, whereas all Village residents live in the Town, Town residents outside of the designated square mile are not Village residents.

We hope the information on the website will give you some insight into the Village and Town governments and the services available to you.  Please don’t hesitate to stop by or call if you have questions or concerns.

We look forward to your feedback and suggestions.
