BEDFORD, N.Y. - Join the town of Bedford for a Virtual Town Hall on Thursday to hear town and county leaders discuss updates on COVID-19.
As of March 24, the number of positive cases in Bedford was 9.
"We cannot reveal their identities, where they live and we don’t know with whom they’ve been in physically near," Supervisor Chris Burdick said. "All the more reason for social distancing and staying at home if you can."
Burdick will address the town through Zoom. There will also be updates from State Senator Shelley Mayer, Assembly Member David Buchwald and County Legislator Kitley Covill.
All meetings are also live streaming on the town's website.http://bedfordny.gov.
The town is eliminating in-person meetings and re-starting all meetings virtually "as promptly as possible."
Burdick said the sewer project will also go ahead as scheduled. The town is also expected to develop a plan for paperless platform for the processing of applications, issuance of permits and certificates of occupancy and other work of the department.
