State of Emergency Extended

By Announcements

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. I believe it is in the best interest of the Town of Clarkson and our residents for me to extend the State of Emergency in the Town of Clarkson which will allow me the discretion to use any and all facilities, equipment, supplies, personnel and other resources of the Town of Clarkson in such manner as may be necessary or appropriate to cope with the disaster or any emergency resulting therefrom. 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 This state of emergency shall remain in effect for the next 30 days unless and until rescinded by me or extended by me for additional 30 day periods. Any residents in need of special or emergency assistance are advised to contact 911.

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.

Burn Ban March 16 – May 14

By Announcements

March’s nice weather, combined with all of us staying at home, has led to a jump start on yard work and winter clean-up. Although it’s snowing outside today our Building Inspector wanted to let everyone know that he’s received many complaints this past week on large fires.


PLEASE NOTE: There is currently a burn-ban from March 16 – May 14 that must be observed.
