Dear Penfield Residents,
In light of public concerns regarding attending community gatherings, a growing number of people are choosing to observe ‘social distancing’ to help prevent the spread of illness as the situation regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve. As such, the Town Board and I would like to remind you there are alternatives to personally attending public meetings in Penfield. Live broadcasts from PenfieldTV make it easy to follow topics of importance to you right from the comfort of your own home.
Town Board, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and other public meetings are broadcast live on Penfield TV Government Access Channel – Spectrum Cable Channel 1303. You may also watch live on your streaming media device: ROKU, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire. Search ‘Penfield TV’ in your device’s app store, it is free. Additionally, meetings are web streamed live at www.Penfield.org. If you can’t tune in during a live meeting you can watch on demand when you like. Like and follow us on social media to be alerted to live meetings. Find those links at www.penfield.org. (*see details below)

We will continue to monitor the novel coronavirus situation and take our cues from the experts. The safety and well-being of town staff and visitors to town facilities is our top priority. As such, we encourage all residents and staff to monitor updates and take hygiene precautions as suggested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the New York State and Monroe County departments of public health.
