Latest on COVID home testing kits


Good Afternoon, Supervisors and Mayors  –

We have been advised by New York State that test kits will now be exclusively distributed to schools through BOCES, prior to any distribution to counties and local municipalities. This process is contrary to the original plan that we were advised of. We expect to have more information from the state by close of business on Monday, and will provide an update as soon as credible information is received. In the meantime, Dutchess County is exploring sourcing and purchasing test kits for immediate distribution.

I will send this information out in a newsletter, so if you are have not already signed up, please do so on our home page Thank you all for your patience.

Happy Thanksgiving !

Enjoy this holiday of giving thanks! Town Hall will be closed on Thursday November 25th and will reopen on Monday November 29th.

$125,000 State Grant for Tennis Courts!

Congratulations to Stanford Rec Director Lauren Osterman who worked with Assemblywoman Didi Barrett’s office to obtain a $125,000 to put in a new tennis court at our Rec Park. This will be a huge improvement for the town, as our courts are currently in such disrepair that they are unsafe to play on. Kudos to Lauren and the Rec Commission for making this happen!
