TOWN HALL PUBLIC ACCESS OPENING  

 

The Town of Bozrah has been in a declared state of emergency since March 20, 2020.  The Town hall was closed to the public and access to the offices and services were limited to appointments only.  With the state government phasing in reopening for business we will do the same, but with restrictions on how many people are allowed in and screening of the individuals entering.

 

  • The town hall doors will remain locked, for access you must ring the bell and state whom you would like to see.

  • No one without a mask will be allowed in the town hall.  (Employees don’t generally wear masks as it is a limited group)

  • Upon entering your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to sanitize your hands.

  • If you are going to look thru the deeds, vital records, or maps in the vault you will be required to wear gloves, this includes the use of the computer outside the town clerk’s office.

  • The tax collector and town clerk have plexiglass shields at their desk to prevent spray from contaminating the area.

  • Only one person will be allowed at one time to conduct business with each individual office, so if there is a title search in progress you will have to wait outside.

  • If you want to see the assessor, the process is the same, but your business will be conducted with the bottom half of the door closed observing proper distance.

 

These rules will stay in place until the state of emergency is lifted for the state and the town. 

Carl Zorn

First Selectman
