NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL BUSINESS WATER CUSTOMERS

THE STATE OF EMERGENCY EXPIRES ON DECEMBER 22, 2021

On May 11, 2021 Governor Cuomo signed into law amendments to the Public Service Law that prevent municipalities and public utilities from terminating water service provided to residents and small businesses for non-payment during the COVID-19 state of emergency. Additionally, the amendments prevent municipalities from relevying previously accrued water charges on or after May 11, 2021 until either the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency, which is December 22, 2021.

All water suppliers must notify residential and small business customers of the protections afforded under the law.

Please be advised that service termination and relevying past due water charges is prohibited until December 22, 2021, for those residential and small business customers who have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency.

If you are a resident or small business that has experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency and would like to request relief from service termination and relevying during the 180 days after the COVID-19 state of emergency expires, you must contact Village Clerk Michelle Chiudina at 845-279-3760 or via email, This email address is being protected from spambots.
