Greenburgh department head discussion with Town Bd: how departments are operating during COVID-19 https://greenburghny.swagit.com/play/04072020-1765Building dept observations: construction, supermarkets, social distancing, Governor's directives
Every Tuesday the Greenburgh Town Board will meet around 6 PM to discuss with department heads how their departments are functioning during the COVID-19 Crisis. Last night’s presentation was very interesting. The link to the discussion is below. While much of the world is on pause, our employees are doing the best they can to maintain the basic services that town government provides residents with during this difficult time. I think you’ll be impressed if you watch the video link.
The Building department provided us with the following memo highlighting their efforts to enforce the Governor’s social distancing directives. See the memo listing how they are enforcing the ban on non essential construction and on safety/health at supermarkets among other businesses.
IF you feel that businesses, individuals are violating the social distancing directives you can make an anonymous complaint to the police department by dialing 411. For building department concerns call 989-1560. The Police Chief indicated that summons will be issued. The Governor’s order imposes up to a $1000 fine. I would appreciate it if you would also e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Many people locally are dying from this horrible illness. Please be extra careful. Last night I received an e mail from a resident who lives near a field on school grounds--people were playing touch soccer. Not fair. Not right. not smart.
The building department staff is working diligently to protect and educate the public. As per the Governor’s orders and working in conjunction with Town Attorneys Office, the Building Department has developed a new “VIOLATION NOTICE” that we will be issuing to business owners, homeowner and contractors that specifically outlines his order. Should the order not be followed a summons to appear in court will be issued. Just to clarify the governor’s order as single employee is allowed to remain on a job site. Below is an excerpt from the States Guidance on the Executive Order section 9 for construction:
