Supervisor Sweeton: Importance of the Census

News & Updates

For Town information log on to www.townofwarwick.org  or tune to Cablevision Municipal Channel 21.

Complete the Census now by visiting 2020census.gov.

Health clinics. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community.

Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.

The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.

It’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.

Our residents are taking advantage of the improving weather to get outside with their families.  We are a Town with many narrow country roads, so please slow down when driving with so many walking these roads.  If you are the walker, bicyclist or jogger please wear bright or reflective clothing so you are readily visible to car traffic.  If we all do our part everyone will be safe.  If you are using one of our parks, the Appalachian Trail, a State park or the many not-for-profit conservation areas, please practice social distancing, and do not park on roadsides or block private driveways.  

Just a reminder – Town Hall offices are closed to the public at this time.  The lobby remains open with drop boxes to leave forms, water and sewer payments, Building Department applications, etc.  Most forms and applications are online at www.townofwarwick.org.  We are not accepting cash payments at this time.  Please pay by check or money order.  Most all services are still available, so if you have any questions or needs please call 986-1124 or 986-1120.

I encourage you to tune into the Tuesday Roundtable show that I co-hosted on WTBQ AM1110/FM93.5 to get the latest updates on happenings around our Town.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board, as per Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.1, will be closed to the public but can be viewed live via the Zoom app on Thurs., May 28, at 7:30 p.m. A link to the meeting will be placed in our official newspaper, the Warwick Valley Dispatch, and on www.townofwarwick.org.  All future meetings will be conducted in this manner until the Governor’s order is lifted.
