PUBLIC ACCESS TO TOWN BUILDINGS
Effective June 1st, 2021, Town buildings will be open to the public. Health & Safety Guidelines will be implemented for everyone's safety.
In an effort to operate as a functional government, based on New York State’s executive orders, the Town of Smithtown has taken measures to limit capacity for in-person services. Arrangements have been implemented to conduct business online, as well as drop off/pick up areas and secure payment options for residents and business owners who prefer to limit physical interactions. Additionally, cleaning crews are thoroughly sanitizing town buildings and grounds on a regular basis.
Building Access: Some town department buildings are open to the public on an appointment only basis, with guidelines and capacity restrictions. All visitors must wear a face covering and practice social distancing prior to entering buildings if unvaccinated. Please CLICK HERE to refer to instructions for each building.
NOTE: The Building Department will operate utilizing the vestibule to safely handle requests.
