Press Release from Supervisor Randazzo


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 2, 2021
FROM TOWN OF CORNWALL SUPERVISOR RICHARD RANDAZZO

 

MUNGER COTTAGE WILL BE RE-OPENING ON MARCH 15th  ON A LIMITED BASIS:

After consulting with our County Executive Steve Neuhaus and our County Health Commissioner Dr. Gelman, I am pleased to report that we will be re-opening Munger Cottage on a limited basis starting Monday, March 15th.  As everyone knows we have been working with the health agencies during the past year and have been very cautious in an effort to do our part to help control the spread of COVID in our community to protect our residents and staff.  

 

Initially, Munger Cottage will open at a reduced capacity and compliance with ALL County Health Department and CDC regulations will be required for all programs and meetings at the Cottage.  Information will be coming out on town programs and schedules as they become available.  Groups and organizations can resume holding their meetings at Munger Cottage, but should contact the Town Clerk’s office to confirm availability.  The Commissioner emphasizes that our senior citizens are still the most vulnerable population for COVID and urges seniors to be cautious about attending gatherings until they are vaccinated.

 

If you have any questions, please call the Supervisor’s Office at 845-534-3760.  For scheduling the use of Munger Cottage, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at 845-534-9100.

TEMPORARY WINTER PARKING – TOWN HALL:
After consulting with the town attorney regarding parking at town hall, the current Town Law restricts parking. I have discussed the matter with Chief Hazard, and the following will apply for the next few weeks of winter:

Vehicles temporarily parking at town hall during snow falls exceeding 2 ½ inches can park in the spaces closest to Main Street and Hudson Street in front of town hall and the tennis courts. Anyone parking there must provide their name, vehicle make, license plate number and telephone contact information by e-mail to Chief Hazard at [email protected] .

Chief Hazard has indicated the officers will not issue any tickets to vehicles temporarily parking at town hall provided they give the information above to the town and they move their vehicles within a reasonable time when requested by the town.
