New Operational Status for Town Offices and Services  effective December 23rd, 2020

Due to an outbreak of cases and close contacts throughout many departments in Town Government and the current surge in the COVID-19 Virus, the Town is changing the operational status of offices and services.  As of December 23, 2020, Town offices and services will be converting to a fully remote platform.  Similar to the Spring Surge, the Town will be closing all buildings to the public and all business will be conducted remotely and by appointment when possible.  Town Offices will be staffed with a skeleton crew with others working remotely.  Other departments, like DPW crews, will be working split shifts to contain contact and prevent spread.

All of these actions are being taken to curb the spread of the virus in this unprecedented surge.  It is also of vital importance to take every action to reduce the spread to keep schools open as much as possible.  Curbing the spread in other areas may help to keep schools open.   Although we are all being adversely affected by the pandemic, school aged children undoubtedly are experiencing the greatest impact with the most long-term consequences.

It is important that we do our part to allow, so that those on the front line; teachers, health care workers, first responders, grocery store employees among others can do their part to keep us safe and healthy during this pandemic. Attached below us an updated Town Hall Operations Guide.

We are hoping that you are taking full advantage of our full repertoire of programming by ZOOM and on BATV. We have worked hard to put these together to keep you engaged and active.  Please see BATV's website (www.batvinc.org) for a listing of current programming.
