Town of Wayne Coronavirus (Covid-19) Preparation

Preparation for residents and town operations in response to the Covid-19 pandemic

Key to our health care systems ability to provide treatment for individuals that have contracted this virus is our collective ability to slow the rate of infections.  The best method is to reduce an infected individuals exposure to others.  All public meetings that we can cancel we will and strive to provide information via electronic means to the best of our ability.   

An infected individual should attempt to remain quarantined in their own home unless medical treatment is required at the hospital.

To assist, we have begun a list of volunteers willing to transport food and supplies to these individuals.  If you would like to volunteer please send an email to Town Clerk, Bill Mahr who is compiling the list.

Check the supervisors page for links to documents that may help you better understand this virus.

New York State Governor Executive Order

Governor Cuomo's recent Executive Order 202.6 has mandated no non-essential construction projects for the current time. Attached is the detail. 

9. Construction
o All non-essential construction must shut down except emergency construction, (e.g. a project necessary to protect health and safety of the occupants, or to continue a project if it would be unsafe to allow to remain undone until it is safe to shut the site).
o Essential construction may continue and includes roads, bridges, transit facilities, utilities, hospitals or health care facilities, affordable housing, and homeless shelters. At every site, if essential or emergency non-essential construction, this includes maintaining social distance, including for purposes of elevators/meals/entry and exit. Sites that cannot maintain distance and safety best practices must close and enforcement will be provided by the state in coordination with the city/local governments. This will include fines of up to $10,000 per violation.
o For purposes of this section construction work does not include a single worker, who is the sole employee/worker on a job site.

Town of Wayne Planning Board Meeting

As of now the next Town of Wayne Planning Board Meeting still has not been scheduled

In response to the New York State on Pause recommendations on public gatherings and essential services I am postponed our May 12 Planning Board meeting until such time that we are allowed to assemble. We are hoping to reschedule a meeting as soon as possible once there is agreement with the Town Supervisor about the lifting of some of the restrictions in Governor Cuomo's Executive Order. As stated previously, while the opportunity to meet electronically was offered, the reality is that most of the Town does not have the needed access to technology that would make that possible. Our decisions rely on public access to all of our residents and information that is supplied at the meeting is not necessarily distributed beforehand for discussion. Our decisions result in an outcome that is not readily reversed since the result is a permanent structure. As soon as we are allowed to assemble we can schedule a public meeting with the appropriate notification if the decision is before our next scheduled monthly meeting. Please continue to monitor the Town of Wayne website and Town Hall bulletin board for updates.
Stay safe, stay home and we'll welcome meeting again
