SARATOGA SPRINGS — City Hall will re-open to the public, albeit in a limited capacity, for a council meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
The building has been closed since being rendered incapable for use following an Aug. 17, 2018 lightning strike and subsequent water damage, after a drainage pipe in the roof was struck and melted, causing heavy rains to pour into the building. The Sept. 15 meeting, which is preceded by a public hearing segment at 6:55 p.m., will be open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
Due to COVID-19 protocols and social distancing, seating and entrance into the meeting will be limited. Those attending will be required to sign in and attest that during the past 14 days they have not traveled internationally or to any state on the NYS DOH Advisory Watch list, and that during that same period they have not had close contact with anyone known to have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Masks must be worn at all times and temperatures will be taken at the door.
Based upon Gov. Cuomo’s Executive Order 205, issued June 25, the following states and territories meet the criteria for required quarantine: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Virgin Islands, Wisconsin.
