The situation revolving around the spread of the Covid-19 virus has escalated rapidly. The Governor has issued several executive orders to attempt to slow the spread of the virus and to protect the public and public workers. I am closing the Town Hall to the public effective tomorrow, 18 Mar 2020 until 15 April 2020 which is the expiration of the order. Access will be restricted to essential employees and they will be here during regular business hours. The public is directed to utilize phone calls and mail to conduct business. All non essential meetings, workshops and events are cancelled until that time. Board meetings will still be conducted, the building will be closed to the public, meetings will be recorded and put on the website and all efforts to comply with the relaxation of the Open Meetings Law are being taken. Unless absolutely necessary Public Hearings will not be scheduled during that time. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.

Covid19 is affecting how we all do business for the foreseeable future. The status of the Town of Hamlin's operations and programs are:
Library - The Hamlin Public Library has made the difficult decision to close the library to the public until further notice. The decision was made after consulting with county and local officials who have encouraged social distancing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus). The health and safety of our patrons, staff and community needs to be our highest priority.
We do not know when we will re-open. We will continue to monitor the situation and work with health, county and local leaders as they make recommendations. For more information about our library, please visit our website (http://hamlinlibraryny.org/) or our Hamlin Public Library facebook page.

BURN BAN IN EFFECT FROM MARCH 16 THROUGH MAY 14.
Open burning of household trash releases dangerous compounds including arsenic, carbon monoxide, benzene, stryrene, formaldehyde, lead, hydrogen cyanide and dioxin, among others.
Open burning is also the single greatest cause of wildfires in New York.

I am very pleased to announce that the Town of Hamlin will receive $8.3 million from the Governor's REDI program. The hours and hours of meetings and phone calls have been sucessful in securing this very important funding for Hamlin. I am very happy to have accomplished this for the residents of the shoreline. This is the silver lining to the dark cloud.
$7.9 million is for a sewer system that will include the entire lakefront from the State Park east to Townline Rd. providing public health protection, economic benifits in terms of property values and enhances water quality at our shoreline.
$400,000 is for barrier bar installation at the terminus of Townline Rd to help maintain access, protect from wave action and enhance public safety for roads in 2 towns.
Informational meetings, timelines, and other details will be coveyed shortly as the projects come together.
The Governors $20,000,000 homeowners plan will be rolling out on October first.
