The Homer Village Board of Trustees met last night and announced that town hall will open today under enhanced safety guidelines, after being closed off to residents since mid-March due to COVID-19.
Village clerk Dan Egnor said the new protocols include signage showing that face coverings are required in order to enter and be served in the building.
Masks and hand sanitizer will be available for those who don’t have any.
Comprehensive “hose-down” cleanings already taking place on Monday and Wednesday overnights will continue, on top of daily sanitation efforts now being made by office employees.
The village offices can be reached at (607) 749-3322 for more information or with any questions.
In village recreation updates, much is still teetering on decisions being made at the state level.
Youth sports are beginning to take registrations here, although any fees paid will be returned should future guidance determine the season will be canceled.
Basketball courts remain closed and are currently not approved under any phase of the state’s reopening plan.
One bit of fun that is being planned in the village – and other municipalities across Cortland County – are special arts & crafts programs in-the-works for the summer season.
In the village, that would take place in Newtown Waterworks Park beginning next month.
Further details are still in development.
