The Federal Reserve’s Main Street Lending Program offers business loans to help eligible small and medium-sized companies through the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is designed to help credit flow to small and medium-sized businesses that were in sound financial condition before the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, but now need loans to help maintain their operations until they have recovered from, or adapted to, the impacts of the pandemic.

The program offers 5-year loans, with floating rates, and principal and interest payments deferred as indicated in the chart below to assist businesses facing temporary cash flow interruptions.

The loans range in size from $250,000 to $300 million – a wide range that may support a broad set of employers.

TOWN OF MAMAKATING SUMMER DAY CAMP

After much consideration and review of the Department of Health’s requirements for summer day camps to open under COVID-19 regulations, it is with great sadness that the Town of Mamakating has canceled the 2020 Summer Day Camp program.

This was a very difficult decision that was made with consideration of the children, camp staff and all participating family’s health and safety.  We realize that our children look forward to camp each year and have memorable summer experiences, however safety for all must be our priority.

We look forward to seeing you all in 2021 for our Summer Day Camp season.

We are currently exploring the possibility of having small-group youth programs.  We will keep you informed as events unfold, keep checking our website.

Orange & Rockland Seeks Public’s Help in Keeping a Social Distance;

Asks Customers to Secure Pets to Reduce Dog-Bite Risk to Workers


To maintain the safety and health of its customers and employees, Orange & Rockland (O&R) urges the public to please refrain from approaching our crews, work sites or trucks as O&R employees read meters in the community.


All O&R employees have been instructed to follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to practice social distancing among themselves and between their crew members and the public. That becomes more difficult to do when approached by passersby who may not be as familiar with social distancing.


So, please respect social distancing and keep back from O&R work areas and remain at a safe distance from O&R workers.


In addition, O&R asks its customers who own dogs to keep their dogs on a leash, indoors or otherwise under secure control to avoid the possibility of O&R personnel being bitten while working on customer property.


O&R is well aware that its customers cherish their dogs. Every responsible dog owner knows that even the most even-tempered, gentle dog is capable of biting someone. These days when more family members are home during the day, it makes sense that dogs may feel more protective of their home turf than usual and become more agitated and aggressive when strangers appear outside the home.


That’s why, to help create the safest environment possible for both O&R employees and customers’ pets, O&R asks its customers to keep dogs on a leash, indoors or otherwise under secure control to avoid the possibility of conflict when O&R workers are present.

A letter from the Supervisor:

May 11, 2020

To our Mamakating Community Members,

The Town of Mamakating is monitoring the summer camp situation closely. 

Presently, the Empire State Development (ESD) does not list summer camps as an ‘Essential Service’ and therefore camps cannot operate under Gov. Cuomo’s State of Emergency. It should be noted that while operation of summer camps is currently prohibited by the State, construction at summer camps is allowed as an essential service. 

Summer camps are regulated and permitted by the NYS Department of Health (DOH), not the local municipalities. Under NYS law, the NYS DOH is the “Authority Having Jurisdiction” (AHJ), and we, local officials, cannot overrule their decisions, regulations or rulings. It is my understanding that there have been social media posts directing concerned citizens to call their Town Supervisors. They might be better served by expressing their concerns additionally to our State representatives and the NYS Dept. of Health since they make the final decision. Today, Sullivan County Association of Supervisors sent a letter to the NYS DOH explaining the circumstances in our County and asking for guidance and a realistic and comprehensive plan to protect the lives of our residents and visitors.

Should the NYS DOH ultimately decide to allow summer camps to operate, they should do so only with a clear and enforceable plan to protect the campers and staff, our year-round and seasonal residents and protect our limited resources at Catskill Regional Medical Center. The NYS DOH should move with the utmost of caution and make decisions based on medical science – not emotions or political pressure.

DEC ANNOUNCES NEW ONLINE HUNTER EDUCATION COURSE FOR NEW YORK HUNTERS

Hunter Ed Course Available Starting April 15 Prior to Start of Turkey Season

 The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced that a new online hunter education course will be available on April 15, for first-time hunters who want to hunt during New York’s turkey hunting season. Turkey hunting season runs from May 1-31, and youth turkey hunting season for New Yorkers 12 to 15 years old is April 25-26.

DEC’s Hunter Education Program (HEP) is partnering with Kalkomey Enterprises, a company that specializes in hunter education, to create this online course that can be completed in six to eight hours. The course is available to individuals 11 and older. Students can complete the course from a computer, tablet, or smart phone at any time. Visit https://www.hunter-ed.com/newyork/ to learn more or to sign up.


The curriculum for the online course is identical to what is taught in the traditional classroom course. Topics such as firearm safety, tree stand safety, hunting ethics, wildlife conservation, and New York State hunting laws and regulations are all covered. Students who successfully complete the online course and pass the final exam will receive a hunter education certificate and can purchase a hunting license from a DEC license issuing agent such as hardware stores and large retailers like Walmart.


The cost of the course is $19.95. The online course will be available through June 30, 2020, at https://www.hunter-ed.com/newyork/.


 Traditional, classroom-based courses will resume at a future date. Visit the Hunter Education Program web page for updates and more information https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/92267.html.

This situation has been challenging and the animal welfare community will be hit hard with the increase of kittens born due to lack of spay/neuter services available. Our shelters will be forced to take in and feed more animals than ever before and we will all need support.

TARA has suspended services until May 4th. We will keep everyone updated as things change and we do hope to get back to offering high quality, low cost services as soon as safely possible.

From Governor Cuomo:

Good morning everyone,

During his Coronavirus briefing, Governor Cuomo confirmed 5,707 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 20,875 confirmed cases in New York State.

New York City had a total of 3,260 new positive cases, bringing its total to 12,305.

The Governor announced an initial delivery of hospital supplies to the Jacob K. Javits Center where FEMA has started to build a 1,000-bed temporary hospital that will help increase New York’s hospital capacity to combat COVID-19 and open next week. This is in addition to the four sites selected by the Army Corps of Engineers that will create temporary hospitals in downstate New York with total capacity up to 4,000.

The Governor also announced that three former Secretaries to the Governor — Steve Cohen, Bill Mulrow and Larry Schwartz — are joining the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force. Mulrow and Cohen will be tasked with developing a NYS Forward Plan - a strategy to restart the economy following the NYS on Pause executive order. Schwartz is tasked with helping the State acquire healthcare equipment and supplies and increasing New York’s hospital surge capacity.

Governor Cuomo signed an executive order requiring all hospitals to increase capacity by a minimum of 50 percent, with a goal of increasing capacity by 100 percent.

The Governor also launched the ’NY Stronger Together’ campaign urging New Yorkers to stay home, stop the spread and save lives. As part of the campaign, celebrities including Robert De Niro, Danny DeVito, Ben Stiller and La La Anthony have sent videos of themselves at home to reinforce the Governor’s message that young people must stay home not for themselves, but to help protect older and more vulnerable New Yorkers. The campaign will also aim to highlight donations from major corporations, celebrities, philanthropic organizations to help increase the state’s supply capacity.

Additionally, the Governor announced that the state is opening a drive-thru COVID-19 mobile testing facility in the Bronx.

AMID COVID-19 PANDEMIC, GOVERNOR CUOMO ISSUES EXECUTIVE ORDER DELAYING VILLAGE ELECTIONS STATEWIDE UNTIL APRIL 28 PRIMARY

In an effort to keep New Yorkers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today issued an executive order delaying village elections statewide until the April 28 primary election.

"Our top priority has been keeping New Yorkers safe and stopping the spread of the novel coronavirus," Governor Cuomo said. "Public health officials have been clear that reducing density is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread, and delaying village elections will help ensure poll workers and voters are not potentially exposed to the virus and at the same time maintain integrity in our election system."
