Mayor Lee Kyriacou, and Ward 1 Council Member Terry Nelson, with a local Beacon update.

  1. State Extends “NY PAUSE:” Governor Cuomo today extended school and non-essential business closure through April 29, with continued social distancing guidelines. 
  2. COVID Counts:  The Dutchess County website shows 994 active COVID-19 cases in our county, of which 68 are in Beacon.  
  3. City Bills:  The community is doing great with paying bills by mail, online, drop box in front of City Hall, or M&T Bank’s drive-up window.  Keep going – keep everyone safe.
  4. Groceries:  For those in need, free groceries are coming again Wednesday 10-11 AM.  Drive-up at Rombout Middle School; walk-up only at South Avenue School. For deliveries, contact or (845) 288-2559 by 5 PM Tuesday. Kudos to Beacon School District, Beacon Mutual Aid, Common Ground Farm, Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Green Teens, Fareground, Food Bank, and Hudson Valley Seed.
  5. Census:  Don’t forget the census – it’s easy and important. 

Thank you all; stay well.
