Letter From Fleischmanns Mayor & Village Board

Good afternoon Fleischmanns
Having settled into this necessary quarantine I would like to once again remind you to look after your elderly and more needy neighbors, we should not forget them. Don’t hoard goods that others also need, we’re in this together, and when this is over we will have to live together, we don’t want bad memories. Be civil towards each other. May I also remind you that we live in a most beautiful area, enjoy the forest, breath the fresh air, contemplate the beautiful things in life. Make the best of the worst.
Fleischmanns COVID-19 Updates:
New procedures are in effect beginning March 25, 2020 for Water Meter Readings, Installs and Curb turn-ons for the protection of you, your families and our Water Dept personnel and their families. Water Meter readings are being conducted this week.  Most meters can be read remotely but Cedarwood personnel will not enter residences where a remote is not installed.  If your meter does not have a remote installed or it is broken contact the Water Dept with your reading.  If you want a Meter installed you will need to contract with a qualified plumber to make the connections and coordinate with the Water Dept for curb turn-ons.  Attached are the new Fleischmanns Water Service Change Request procedures. A current phone number and email is required to process the request.
Governor Cuomo is urging all New Yorkers to stay home as much as possible. For the safety of all visitors and to stop the spread of COVID-19, the Fleischmanns Village Park playground and sporting field are CLOSED. Please limit outdoor recreational activities to non-contact, and avoid activities where you may come in close contact with other people. We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate this public health crisis together.
