VILLAGE OF WOODBURY, NEW YORK
DECLARATION OF LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY
EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 2 OF 2020
I, TIMOTHY P. EGAN, duly elected Mayor of the Village of Woodbury, New York, do hereby declare as an EXECUTIVE ORDER the following:
WHEREAS, on March 15, 2020 I issued an Executive Order owing to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic which, among other things closed Village Hall and all offices of the Village to the public, and directed that any member of the public needing interaction with Village officials for information and/or services to contact Village officials by telephone or email, both of which are available on the Village of Woodbury website at www.villageofwoodbury.com, and in light of the continuing nature of the pandemic,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Timothy P. Egan, as Mayor and Chief Executive of the Village of Woodbury, New York do hereby continue said Declaration of Emergency dated March 15, 2020, including the reasons therefore, the powers invoked thereby, and the measures undertaken therein, except to the extent noted below:
1. Notwithstanding the existence of any provision in any Village collective bargaining agreement to the contrary, and pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order 202.4 dated March 16, 2020, the Mayor has designated various Village employees as essential or non-essential, and directed that certain non-essential employees be paid to either work from home or be allowed to take leave with pay without charging accrued leave allowances. All such non-essential employees taking leave without charging accrued leave allowances shall nonetheless be subject to being subsequently designated by the Mayor or his designee as an essential employee and required to return to work without any additional compensation for such return, except to the extent of State-mandated overtime pay and other similar State labor law requirements. If, prior to such re-designation as an essential employee, such non-essential employee elected to charge their leave from work to their accrued leave allowances they may do so, if allowed by their supervisor, and not be subject to being designated an essential employee required to return to work. However, such employee may be designated as an essential employee regardless, should the Mayor determine in his sole discretion that such designation as an essential employee is necessary to maintain an appropriate level of essential services by the Village.
2. The conduct of building inspections and the issuance of building permits, certificates of occupancy, and other Village issued permits shall resume to a limited extent at the discretion of the Building Inspector or the relevant person or board charged with issuing such permits.
This executive order shall take effect at 12:01 a.m. on March 19, 2020.
ORDERED this 18th day of March 2020 at 2:00 p.m.
TIMOTHY P. EGAN, Mayor
