Coronavirus and Newburgh
March 30, 2020 Press Release - Tornado Aftermath - Rivertown Trail Closure, Building Permit Waivers and Limb and Tree Pickup
March 24, 2020 Press Release - Limiting Access to Park Gathering Places, Playgrounds and Sports Courts, Requiring Social Distancing on Trail
March 20, 2020
The Town Council wants to make sure you are well informed and are taking measures to protect yourself. Social distancing should be practiced even when utilizing our parks and the trail. The CDC recommends at least 6 feet of distance between people.
By declaring a state of emergency yesterday, the town is able to open a case number with FEMA for disaster recovery relief during and after this emergency. The declaration gives more control to the municipality to track and request reimbursement for additional resources needed at this time and allows leaders to make decisions in a more expedient way.
The Town is keeping your safety in mind at all times. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or if you need additional information. We will keep you updated as conditions develop.
