Extension of State of Emergency Declaration

Extension of State of Emergency Declaration



A State of Emergency had previously been declared in the Town of Charlton effective March 16th, 2020,  and set to expire on April 15, 2020, which pursuant hereto, shall be extended for another 30 days.

This State of Emergency has been declared for the entire Town of Charlton due to the following:

  1. Outbreak and spread of COVID-19 virus, accelerating at an alarming pace, with reports of cases in the County of Saratoga increasing each day. In order to protect the Town residents, employees, and the public health and safety, emergency action is necessary to help slow and arrest the rapid spread of this virus, including reducing the opportunity for instances in which individuals come in close contact with one another.

These situations threaten the public safety.

This State of Emergency will remain in effect for thirty (30) days from the date hereof, or until rescinded, modified or extended by a subsequent order or resolution. 

As the Town Supervisor of the Town of Charlton, I, ALAN GRATTIDGE, exercise the authority given me under Section 24 of the New York State Executive Law, to preserve the public safety and hereby render all required and available assistance vital to the security, well-being, and health of the citizens of this Municipality.

I hereby direct all departments and agencies of the Town of Charlton to take whatever steps necessary to protect life and property, the public infrastructure, and provide such emergency assistance deemed necessary and proper by the Town Board and Town Supervisor.

This declaration may be modified, supplemented, and changed by subsequent orders, declarations and Resolutions.

Dated: April 13, 2020                       

                                                                        Alan Grattidge, Town Supervisor

                                                                        Town of Charlton
