8 October Town Encourages Less Visits to Town Hall Amid COVID-19 Pandemic October 8, 2020 By Danyelle Barrett General 0 Supervisor Meyers is requesting anyone who does not need to physically come to town hall to please conduct business through email or phone whenever possible. If you are paying your water bill, the bills can either be mailed in, dropped through the mail slot in the front door of town hall after hours, or given to the court officer at the front door during the hours of 11am-3pm. Town hall is still currently open to the public from 11am-3pm. For the safety of our employees and everyone visiting town hall, we are trying to reduce the number of people coming into town hall. New Windsor is currently the third highest in positive COVID-19 test results in Orange County. Court officers are still screening temperatures of all visitors and masks are required. We thank everyone for their help in this matter!

The Town understands how much our families enjoy these camps each summer, however the safety of children is of the utmost concern of our Town officials.
