Town Court

Effective immediately, our Court Calendar days are canceled through April. We have sent out adjournment notices to all concerned. In addition, our Court Clerk windows and accessibility are closed to the public. All non-essential business is postponed indefinitely. Essential, emergency business during business hours will be conducted through a centralized Court (County Court in our District). After hours, at this point, will still be conducted locally, although, that may still change as well. I am awaiting clarification. Obviously, the goal is to reduce the gathering of persons in our Court. Unless circumstances dictate differently, we will still function, without public access, those functions necessary to maintain the integrity of our Court. I am maintaining availability through email and conference calls at all times. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments and/or concerns.
