Release Date: March 22, 2020

March 22, 2020- Update from Town Supervisor Linda Puglisi 

The Town Board and I are continuing to monitor the current health crisis in our Country, State, Region and Community. The town is operating and essential services will continue with the modified sanitation/recycling pick up. Please visit our website and Facebook page for up-to-date information. We continue to urge everyone to remain at home unless absolutely necessary. 

I’m in constant communication with State, County, Town officials and service providers.  We expect to receive information this week from Westchester County regarding positive cases of COVID-19 in our Town.  We will provide you with this information upon approval from Westchester County officials.  You will receive code red notifications periodically with important information. Please stay healthy, stay safe and thank you as always for your cooperation.
