The Town of Monroe is pleased to announce the return of in-person Town Board Meetings at Town Hall, 1465 Orange Turnpike, Monroe, New York.

Given the current times, please note the following procedures that must be adhered to should you choose to attend a meeting:

Following Governor Cuomo’s adoption of the CDC guidelines lifting the mask mandate for vaccinated individuals, masks will no longer be required at town meetings for individuals who are fully vaccinated (*you are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after your 2nd dose of the vaccine).  Individuals who are immunocompromised or are unvaccinated should continue to wear masks and socially distance.

- Please be advised that all employees, board members and visitors will continue to partake in a temperature screening upon arrival to all town buildings until further notice.   

Meeting attendees arriving prior to the 7 p.m. meeting start time should enter through the upper level doors where a contactless temperature check will be conducted. To assist in contact tracing efforts, meeting attendees will be asked to provide their name and contact information. All temperatures will be recorded as a pass/fail on a log-sheet unless a body temperature above 100.4 is detected, in which the actual temperature reading will then be recorded and traced. Any individual who shows signs of an elevated body temperature will be asked to return home immediately and contact their physician.

- Lastly, please continue to be respectful of others by remaining at home should you feel ill or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19. 

We are excited to share the newly renovated meeting room with our residents. We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to our safety guidelines and thank you for your ongoing patience and support!
