Local Government Service Changes - March 16, 2020

A Report from the Municipal Liaison Committee


In light of the current health crisis, the title industry should expect changes in municipality hours of service and closures throughout New York State. 
We have already seen partial closures at county offices, and in the city, town and village governments. We should also expect that there will be cases where the municipality will close and the employees will not be available for any access to public information. Municipalities that have created public internet access to specific information should not be disrupted during this time.    
Some of the municipalities remain fully staffed but are limiting access or closing to the public. In these cases, they are providing an alternative method of obtaining public information. These alternative methods often require more involvement by municipal workers, which may cause delays in the return times of municipals, tax and exam searches. Each individual municipality closing will be different.
You should contact your examiner and/or municipal vendor with questions regarding a specific municipality.
