We hope all of you are well, and that you remain so as we continue through this crisis.
As we are sure you are aware, the Governor has issued a series of Executive Orders restricting the workforce that is permitted at any work site.
New guidelines have been issued pertaining to construction work. While these guidelines have not been put in place by our Board, we wanted to make you aware of them to make sure any difficulties can be avoided.
For the purposes of our Village, under these guidelines if construction work is being conducted on your property it must be halted unless it fits in one of the following categories: (1) the construction is essential because it involves a project necessary to protect health and safety of the occupant; (2) a certain portion of work at the site must be completed before closing the site because it would be unsafe to close the site otherwise, or (3) the work is being conducted by a single worker, who is the sole employee/worker on the job site.
Please take steps to halt projects as required unless they fit within one of the three categories listed. Failure to cooperate with the Governor’s Order could result in violations being issued with potential fines of up to $10,000.00 by New York State.
