SARATOGA SPRINGS — Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco and Deputy Commissioner Joseph J. O’Neill announced the Department of Public Works’ operational plan following COVID-19 directives set forth by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The DPW work force will transition into emergency standby mode and will respond to emergency situations as-needed. Request for DPW service calls can be made to police dispatch, 518-584-1800.
The Weibel Avenue transfer station will also operate under reduced hours between 8 a.m. – 12 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
“The Governor has directed all non-essential workforce to remain home, for DPW that means staying home and being prepared to respond as-needed, this is for the good of our personnel and to help stop the spread of
COVID-19” said Scirocco, in a statement. “The public can rest assured that in any emergency during this time our work force will respond and resolve the issue as quickly as possible.”
DPW crews had remained operational earlier this month for lawn-debris pickup, roadway repairs, and routine calls for service.
