Sunapee Town Office Plan to Reopen to the Public
The Sunapee Selectmen continue to actively monitor the COVID-19 situation in Sunapee, Sullivan County, and the State. In consultation with our Emergency Management Director and Health Officer, the Selectmen have decided that effective Monday, July 13, 2020, the Sunapee Town Office at 23 Edgemont Road will be reopened to the public.
The following outlines the “re-opening plan” which will be in effect on Monday, July 13 through Monday, August 24. At their Monday, August 24th meeting, the Selectmen will determine whether to further reopen the Town Office.
We encourage customers to conduct business whenever possible through the drop box in the atrium at the Town Office, online through the Town’s website at www.town.sunapee.nh.us, over the phone, by mail, or email. When those options are not available, appointments must be made with various departments.
At the bottom of this release is the contact information for staff contacts to make appointments. The Town Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 8:00am-5:00pm, and until 1:00pm on Wednesdays.
To accommodate re-opening the building, we have developed the following processes which will be in effect until further notice. These practices are based upon public health guidelines and are designed to keep both our employees and the public safe.
Please note that certain departments may need to adapt procedures specific to their area of the building and services. We will learn, adjust, and adapt as we move forward, and ask for your help and patience during this time.
Conducting Business in Person:
The Selectmen and other committees will hold both in-person meetings/zoom meetings at the Town Office. To ensure continued compliance with CDC and DHHS guidelines, the meetings will only be attended in person by Selectmen members and staff who are requested to attend. At this time, the public can attend, and we will continue to have the ability participate through electronic means as outlined in meeting agendas. At any time that the CDC guidelines cannot be met the meeting will be recessed and other options be made available.
If an in-person conversation occurs, everyone is asked to maintain a 6-foot distance whenever possible, and if not possible, we encourage everyone to wear a mask or meet outside.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation – working together, we hope to have a safe and healthy re-opening our community. Please note that departments may need to adapt procedures specific to their areas of the building and services. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any suggestions as to how we may help to keep our employees and residents safe and well.
Finally, we will continue to monitor all local developments related to COVID-19. We continue to be committed to timely and ongoing communication about all changes to our operating status as well as any recommendations to the public from public health and other government officials.
