North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur Pappas announced the following on Monday:
Following in line with the Niagara County State of Emergency declaration, I am directing that all North Tonawanda City Hall activities after 4:30 p.m. each day be canceled until further notice. This is effective starting today. Sanitizing of the building has been going on daily. However, this will allow for more cleaning to take place. Anyone from the public is asked to limit activity to essential business only during the regular hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in order to keep the number of people in the building at a minimum. Any business that can be accomplished online or by phone would be helpful. Any bills paid by check through the mail would be appreciated.
Also, I am closing the North Tonawanda Senior Center effective after business hours today at 4:30 p.m. since the COVID-19 virus is a great threat to this group of people.
In addition, closed until further notice is the North Tonawanda Youth Center and its activities. All closures will commence at the end of the business today, Monday at 4:30 p.m.
There will be no public attendance at the Common Council meetings and workshops. The meetings will be viewable live on Facebook and on the city website. Comments can be made on both outlets. Residents can also leave comments and concerns in the City Hall drop box located outside the front doors of City Hall.
The health and safety of all staff and residents are our priorities and necessitate these actions. Also, please keep in your thoughts all our emergency personnel and first responders as they work during this difficult time.
