Originally the State of Emergency closed public buildings for five days, the Mayor has changed that to have buildings closed until the State of Emergency has been lifted. The article has been changed to reflect that.
WATERVLIET, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Mayor Charles Patricelli and the City Council of the City of Watervliet made the decision to close City Hall to the public until the State of Emergency issued has been lifted. The buildings will be closed effective November 23 at 8:00 a.m. This is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic causing the town to go into a State of Emergency.
Normal City Hall services (Administrative, Building Department, City Clerk and Finance Departments) will not be accessible to the public for in-person business. Any such services will be available via phone, email or by appointment only.
