TOWN HALL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

Office Closure

TOWN HALL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 2020 UNTIL MONDAY, APRIL 6, 2020 (Tentative).

 

Governor Sununu issued a state of emergency for the State of New Hampshire on Friday evening due to COVID-19. The Governor also directed all schools to close and work toward a virtual environment at least until April 6th. Officials for the Town of Thornton met this morning to discuss our plans moving forward through this crisis.

We continue to actively monitor the COVID-19 situation, which is rapidly evolving. The Town is committed to the continued health and optimal safety of our residents as well as our employees, and we intend to do our part to “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To that end, the Board of Selectmen have decided that effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Town Hall will be closed to the public until at least Monday, April 6, 2020.

However, we will still be working to serve the residents of Thornton. We intend to do our best to operate as a “VIRTUAL TOWN HALL.” In today’s world, most of the transactions for our residents can be done online or arranged via phone, email or US Mail. Resident questions can and will be answered via phone or email. Our Town Hall employees will be working on-site and will continue to be at your service.

PUBLIC MEETINGS: Board of Selectmen and Committee meetings in March and early April will be canceled and more information will be forthcoming about meetings in mid-April and beyond.

Please continue to check the Town’s website for updates to the calendar of meetings that will be taking place.

Finally, rest assured that we will be monitoring all local developments related to COVID-19, and as your Town officials, we are committed to timely and ongoing communication about any and all changes to our operating status as well as any recommendations to the public from public health and other government officials.
