NC copes with COVID-19
NORTH CANAAN — Town Hall remains closed as officials continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, but information is posted periodically on the town’s website at www.northcanaan.org.
Commenting on Monday, March 23, First Selectman Charlie Perotti said, “We’re doing OK. There are no major issues.” He said that many non-essential businesses including the town’s many antique and vintage shops are shut down, but services such as plumbers, electricians, landscapers whose work is outdoors, and others remain available.
Perotti said that he relies on regular state government updates as a guide to managing the coronavirus; updates from Gov. Ned Lamont can be found at www.portal.ct.gov/Coronavirus.
Town offices remain open on their regular schedule. Residents may contact the offices with questions, concerns or suggestions by phone or email. Forms and applications can be accessed on the town website at www.northcanaan.org. All contact information can be found on the website or by calling 860-824-7313.
For the safety of Town Hall staff, procedures are in place to sanitize all surfaces throughout the building.
The transfer station remains open for regular hours but the Swap Table is not operating, Perotti said.
