Update for June 29, 2020

June 30th, 2020

It is with regret that due to the pandemic Germantown’s Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks are cancelled for 2020.

We ask our neighbors and guests to refrain from using fireworks because in addition to being illegal they create a risk to personal safety as well as pose a fire hazard to property.
The Town Hall, including all offices, except the Justice Court, are open.  Please refer to the office hours posted on our website as there have been some changes.  Visitors will be logged in and screened for COVID-19 in accordance with the NYS mandated Safety Plan which we have developed.  Please make sure you wear a mask and practice social distancing.

The Dog Park has reopened.  Please use the sanitizer at the park, wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

The Kellner Community Activity Building and the Parsonage will remain closed until further notice.

As we reopen in phases under the Governor’s plan we will continue to provide updates as quickly as possible.

Please note that the Town Playground remains closed. Please practice social distancing if you do go outside. And please wear a mask if you will be in proximity to others.

The Town Board will meet remotely on July 14, 2020 using Zoom audio/video technology. The agenda and information about how the public can participate will be posted by July 14, 2020.

The Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals will meet remotely in July as necessary. Similarly, GEDAC, LWRP committee and WAC will also meet remotely. The boards and committees will use Zoom audio/video technology. Please check the calendar and “News” on our website for more details about upcoming meetings, agendas and information about how the public can participate.

We will reassess the situation by July 15, 2020.

We will continue to monitor the situation and work with our partners at Columbia County to do what is best for Germantown.

Have a safe Independence Day.
