While guidance on re-opening seems to evolve daily, we have received word that opening of Municipal buildings to the public will be in Phase III. We are approximately ten (10) days away from entering Phase III, so the Town Hall will open to the public on or about June 23. While all Town business and departments, with the exception of the Court which the State controls, have remained open for business remotely during the pandemic, we look forward to once again greeting our residents in person while following CDC safety guidelines.
Our playground equipment and bathrooms in our parks are once again open. They are sanitized daily and signage, as per the Orange County Department of Health, is in place to ensure your safety. Please abide by the guidelines so these facilities can remain open for everyone’s enjoyment.
The Town Beach at the Thomas P. Morahan Waterfront Park opened on June 6 and is now open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. for Warwick Town residents only. This, of course, includes Florida, Greenwood Lake and Warwick Village residents. The beach area is limited to 50% occupancy initially while the Town and Village monitor how beachgoers observe our social gathering regulations. Season passes can be obtained from the Warwick Town Clerk by calling 986-1124. The NYS and Orange County Departments of Health have imposed strict guidelines that staff and beachgoers will need to follow, so your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
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 Thursday, June 25, 2020, 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.
