What a week! Typical March Madness weather. Our Town Crew did an
amazing job keeping up with conditions. A sincere Thank You goes out
to all our town forces for their efforts.
Because Essex County was under a “State Of Emergency” and we lost
electric power, our March meeting of the Town Board had to be
postponed to Tuesday March 21 st at 7pm. An Agenda is on our
Facebook page and on the Bulletin Board at the Post Office.
With power outages, always call NYSEG to report. Many times people
believe “someone else” must have reported it. On some occasions, this
is not the case. In addition, after you report the outage, feel free to
reach out to my office. When it comes to electricity, I have no issue
using whatever contacts I have to work with you and the power
company to restore service.
Please remember we maintain an active list of Essex County Job
openings at the Town Offices. Currently there are almost 50 openings
with our county government. If looking for a job, this could be a great
start of possibilities. Also available at the Town Offices are COVID test
kits. If you are having symptoms, we just ask you call first and we will
place kits outside for you. Finally, we still have gallons of Hand Sanitizer
FREE for town residents. Just stop by.
Looking for things to do in the near future? The Au Sable Valley Drama
Club will be performing the play “GREASE” Show dates start March 16 th
