Gradual Re-Opening of Clarkson Town Hall

By Announcements

We will begin a gradual re-opening of the Clarkson Town Hall on Monday, June 1, 2020.

For the protection of our residents and employees, until further notice, we will operate by appointment only. Initially appointments will be limited to the Town Clerk’s Office, Assessor’s Office and the Building Inspector/Code Enforcement Officer‘s office. Other departments may be added as time progresses. We are asking for patience as we adjust to our new procedures. We will continue to answer phones and emails during business hours. Our drop box is available 24/7.

Any employee interacting with the public will wear face coverings and any member of the public must wear a face covering if they plan to enter the Town Hall. Physical distancing of at least 6 should be maintained.

Only those with confirmed appointments will be permitted in the Town Hall and only one person per appointment. The person you have an appointment with will let you inside the building. The Town Clerk’s Office will have appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Assessor’s Office will have appointments on Monday and Wednesday. The Building Department will schedule appointments daily if necessary.

Departments may have concurrent appointments; however, no more than two non-employees may be in the building at the same time.

Although we love to chat with residents as in the past, but we must now limit our time to conducting the business, and residents should vacate the Town Hall once their business is completed. Each area shall be sanitized after each appointment and prior to the next appointment.

Town of Clarkson – STATE OF EMERGENCY
The County of Monroe and the State of New York have declared States of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The outbreak poses an immediate danger to public health and safety which imperils the residents and businesses in the Town of Clarkson.

In particular, but not in limitation, I anticipate that it will be critical to have Town personnel available to respond to specific, but currently unknowable, needs arising in the Town. Therefore, by the power vested in me, pursuant to Article 2-B of the Executive Law of the State of New York, I hereby declare a state of emergency effective this date at noon within the entire Town of Clarkson, Monroe County, New York. This state of emergency shall remain in effect for the next 30 days unless and until rescinded by me or extended by me for additional 30 day periods.

Mobile DMV Canceled for 2020

By Announcements

Unfortunately I have received word from Monroe County Clerk Jamie Romeo that she has canceled the Mobile DMV for the remainder of 2020.

Each Thursday the Clarkson Courthouse was home to the Mobile DMV and was a convenient service to our residents. During the remainder of the year the County will review this operation and how it can be adapted to include physical distancing practices and other potential changes. Services were initially suspended on March 13 due to COVID-19.
