Supervisor Meyers contacting state and county officials regarding COVID-19 vaccine location in New Windsor

Supervisor Meyers is contacting New York State and Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus in regards to setting up a COVID-19 vaccination location at the Town Hall Complex. New Windsor Emergency Services has two Registered Nurses on staff who would administer the vaccine to eligible residents. 

All New York State guidelines would be followed. Supervisor Meyers would like to make it easier for eligible New Windsor residents to receive the vaccine.

The town will announce any plans as soon as it has more information from the state and county.

Message from Supervisor Meyers Regarding Town Finances

From Supervisor Meyers:

I want to give a quick synopsis of where the Town of New Windsor is heading next year as it relates to the town’s finances/taxes. The town, as is the case with many businesses and residents, is not in great financial condition. The town comptroller has cautioned me a number of times regarding his concerns as it relates to the town’s fiscal condition going forward next year. Two huge issues/problems facing the town are the economy and our union contracts with our unionized employees. These contracts were negotiated a couple of years ago during different economic times. An attempt was made to seek some concessions from the PBA and the CSEA - to no avail as of this time. Many of our businesses and residents are struggling (nationally 25% of businesses have gone out of business and are not coming back). I have been told many times recently by owners and residents: “I don’t know how I am going to pay my taxes.” We cannot continue going forward as if nothing is wrong.

I will update our taxpayers over the coming weeks as to what steps I am going to propose to the Town Board to address this situation. To me, raising taxes is not an option.


New Windsor designated a yellow COVID-19 hot zone by New York State

The State of New York has designated New Windsor as a COVID-19 hot zone (yellow) as of today, November 19.  In Orange County, New Windsor has been the number two municipality for positive cases in the last number of days.  Two other designated yellow hot zones in Orange County at the moment are the Cities of Newburgh and Middletown.

Supervisor Meyers is asking our residents to please adhere to the guidelines issued by the Department of Health. These include, but not limited to, wearing masks, frequent hand washing and social distancing. Supervisor Meyers is very concerned about the impact on the Town if we are moved to an orange hot zone.

Listed below are the three zones and the information about each.
