[ARCHIVED] Town Hall/buildings closed to public--specifics of state of emergency that I declared

I declared a Disaster Emergency

All Town Buildings closed to the public. Call town staff by phone. Parks, playgrounds, basketball courts, fields are closed. Vehicular access to parks prohibited but walking trails open. My cell: 438 1343


The following is a Declaration of Emergency that was declared last night.  Many other communities in the county are declaring similar emergencies. Although our buildings are closed- we will work hard to continue to provide you with the services you depend on. The Town Board and I are having video conferencing calls daily with other town officials. I participate in conference calls with the County Executive, with other town officials three times a week, getting updates and learning what other communities are doing.   Although the Town Hall is closed you can always reach me on my cell: 438-1343. Or e mail me at I try to personally get back to everyone who contacts me the same day. Since I’m getting swamped with calls it would be helpful if you would advise me when the latest time in the evening I can call you back (I go to sleep after midnight).
