PURSUANT TO COUNTY OF ALBANY AND TOWN OF COLONIE COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS 19) STATE OF EMERGENCIES ALL PUBLIC BUILDINGS, EXCEPT PUBLIC SAFETY, ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.
Based upon the guidelines set forth by New York State caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, effective March 16, 2020, all Town of Colonie Buildings are closed to the public with the exception of our Public Safety Building. Our goal is to continue to deliver critical services to the residents including police and EMS protection, clean water, and safe sewage removal while reducing our work force. By taking these precautions to prevent the spread of the virus, we are protecting the health and safety of our employees and the entire community. All Town parks and trails remain open at this time. All other departments will be working with essential personnel only.
Dear Colonie Residents,
We urge all residents to refer to the town’s website, www.colonie.org, for any updates and any services provided by the various departments. With the reduced work force, some phones may not be manned and response time to emails and phone messages may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your understanding and assistance while we all work together during this difficult time and remember to stay healthy and be well.
