OVTD History & FAQs


In 1979, the Town of Stratford created the Oronoque Village Tax District pursuant to a state statute authorizing its formation for limited purposes. These include, among others, the lighting of streets; the planting and care of shade and ornamental trees; the construction and maintenance of roads, crosswalks, sidewalks, drains and sewers; the hiring of security; and the construction and maintenance of recreational facilities—all of which had previously been provided by the Condominium Association or by the Town of Stratford. The Condominium Association then licensed the Tax District to perform those functions on its behalf.


Question: Are tax district taxes deductible from your Federal Income taxes?

Answer:  This is an issue that has been raised many times in the past.  The Oronoque Village Condominium Association (OVCA) takes no position on the deductibility of Tax District taxes and strongly recommends that each unit owner consult his/her qualified tax advisor.

Question:  Who is responsible for the daily operations of the Village, the Condominium Association or the Tax District?

Answer:  The Oronoque Village Condominium Association is legally responsible for the daily operations of the Village. The Tax District responsibilities include roads, security and others allowed by law.

Question:  For whom do our employees work?

Answer:  Although a portion of your common charges, as well as a portion of your Tax District taxes, pays our employees’ wages, they are employed and supervised by the condominium association.  Any problems or concerns that you may have regarding an employee in the performance of his/her duties must be reported to either our Executive Manager, our Maintenance Director or to the OVCA board itself.  You may not order or discipline the employees yourselves.
