ROTTERDAM – Town Hall reopened for in-person business Tuesday, after being closed to walk-in visitors because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which began in March 2020.
The building at 1100 Sunrise Blvd. will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., while appointments can be made during other business hours.
Appointments can be made through the town website, https://www.rotterdamny.org/.
The town will continue to document attendance, and all COVID-19 protocols will be adhered to, including mask wearing, social distancing, and temperature checks upon arrival, it said in a statement.
“We are excited to be reopening the doors of Town Hall to the public after being closed due to the pandemic,” Town Supervisor Steven Tommasone said in the statement.
“We understand that face-to-face interaction can make a difference when conducting local business, and we want our community to have a system they can rely on,” Tommasone said. “Town Hall will adhere to all social distancing rules and regulations to provide a safe environment for all those who visit.”
Town hall staff and employees have been working in-person conducting official town business through phone calls, scheduled appointments, and mail inquiries. Town employees will be required to abide by similar visitation rules and will continue to practice social distancing and mask wearing.
