There will be an Open House featuring representatives from multiple NYS Agencies to assist those who have been impacted by recent flooding taking place this Thursday 8/30 from 12pm-8pm at the Sampson State Park Office Building located at 6096 NYS Route 96A in Romulus. We are further compiling the complete list of agencies who will be in attendance, but this event is intended as a one stop shop opportunity where residents can come and speak directly with representatives from state agencies on any issues they may be having, ranging from insurance problems to permitting, and beyond.

To Seneca and Schuyler County residents affected by the recent flooding:
We are working to organize a long-term plan to address the debris management needs of the affected residents of the two counties. Crews have been working long hours on the roads and lake to clear the debris. The public roads have mostly been cleared and are close to normal function.
We would like to get an accurate accounting of how many homes are in need and the extent of the assistance needed. If you are in need, please call 211 and provide them with your name, an exact address, and a description of the assistance needed, I.E.: there are trees and debris in my driveway or yard.
Although this storm struck fast, the cleanup will take some time. We all need to work together to accomplish the goal of getting back to normal. If you know a seasonal resident please pass this information along to them.
We appreciate all of the efforts of the residents of Seneca and Schuyler counties and the emergency personnel and public works employees who were there during the storm and since.
