The Town is monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Joaquin. There may be areas of flooding if and when the storm hits on Monday/Tuesday.
Should you experience flooding or think you might have some flooding caused by heavy rains, the Highway Department will make sandbags available to residents only. Please call during regular business hours: from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday: 845-297-9451. You can make arrangements to pick up the sandbags at the Town Highway garage.
Be sure to have proof of residence within the Town of Wappinger. Also, as a precaution, know alternate routes to and from your home. If town roads flood, the Highway Department may close those roads.
You should know more than one way to get in and out of your residence.
The next regular Town Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm.
Please note: this is a change of date. Monday October 12 is Columbus Day, a legal holiday, and Town Hall will be closed.
"The Highway Department emergency phone system has been activated and is in service. Residents should call 845.297.4158 should there be an emergency need for the Highway Department after hours. Please note this number is also posted on the Town website.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.."
