As Supervisor and Chief Executive of the Town of Austerlitz, I hereby declare under the authority of section 24 of the Executive Law, a state of emergency as a result of flash flooding and flooding from the rain storm which occurred on Wednesday June 25, 2014, that caused substantial and serious damage to Town roads and drainage systems. As a result Town roads have been closed and remain in a state of repair. This declaration in effect since June 26, 2014, will remain in effect until further notice and covers the whole Town of Austerlitz. While in effect, the public should use caution when traveling in these areas and be attentive to road closing and road repair signs and other hazard markings. The Town will have to enter certain streams and waterways to clear storm related debris to clear drainage ways.
Robert Lagonia, Supervisor
Town of Austerlitz
