Red Hook Responds/ COVID-19 Links/Village Hall Closed

Red Hook Responds

The Town and Villages are helping to support a community based effort called Red Hook Responds to assist our neighbors in need and to solicit individuals who may want to help.

A website called   http://www.redhookresponds.org   and a volunteer/help hotline number (845-640-4788) have been established to further those objectives. By sharing this information we hope to be able to reach as many folks as possible, to do what we do best: help each other.

COVID-19 Alert Links

 

Village Hall is closed until further notice

In the interest of public health in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic Village Hall will be closed to the public starting Wednesday, March 25th and continuing until further notice.

Village Services will continue but to minimize person-to-person contact we believe no one except Village personnel should be using the building. Even our employees will only be performing essential work and  be working at different hours and maintaining social distance as they do. Any of their work which can be conducted from home will be. All municipalities are compelled by the Governor’s Executive Order to do so.

Garbage and recycling pick-up will continue on Tuesdays as normal.

To purchase garbage tags please send a check and a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

The Village of Tivoli
PO Box 397
Tivoli, NY 12583

Garbage tags are $4 each.

To conduct business with the Village please use telephone, email, or the front door drop-box.
