The past weekend the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) outbreak has escalated. National, State and Local governments are increasing the restrictions to ensure the social distancing necessary to contain the spread of the virus. With this being said the State and County has advised that workforce should be at 50% for all non-essential staff. Starting Wednesday, March 18th we will be working with 50% workforce. We ask for your understanding with this matter at this time. Please keep in mind that this also includes the Town Highway Department. If you have any items that can wait to be completed at a later date, we ask that you use your judgment and hold off. If you have an emergency, please call and we will help you as best we can. Please note that all public gatherings are on hold at this time as well. These decisions have been very difficult and I am sure will be disappointing to some however, we believe it is necessary to contain the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of the community. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Please remain safe and healthy in these difficult times.
