This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Town Clerk Teresa Burr and Assistant Clerk Nancy Danelo. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.
We talk about how the Town Clerk’s office has become virtual continuing to provide most services. They are not currently providing notary public services or accepting marriage intentions at this time. Some other services may take time to turn around but are still being processed.
The one service completion that is not being done at this time is to acknowledge the voter registrations done online or through the registry. Those records are still coming in but are not yet being acknowledged by the office.
Our discussion includes a conversation on the two censuses underway. The annual Town census was in the process of being wrapped up when the shutdown occurred. If you have not yet completed the Town census please send it back or drop it in the white box on the corner of the building.
The Federal 2020 Census is also underway and is important to complete.
The recording runs about 12 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Teresa and Nancy https://www.hipcast.com/podcast/HN4DNTz7
