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 This state of emergency shall remain in effect for the next 30 days unless and until rescinded by me or extended by me for additional 30 day periods.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.
