By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 16 March 2020 at 10:18 am

The town halls in Albion and Shelby are closed to the public until further notice, to protect the public and town employees. This also means court cases will be delayed.

Officials from the towns made the decision due to the current state of emergency in Orleans County and New York State due to the coronavirus health threat.

Shelby will accept any payments in the court drop box on the south side of the town hall on Salt Works Road. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact the town hall at 585-798-3120.

The Albion Town Hall on Clarendon Road is currently locked and not accessible to non-employee traffic.

“Phone numbers and email addresses are posted on the door and we will service resident needs as quickly as possible,” said Town Supervisor Richard Remley. “Additionally, the court system is closed and all cases have been delayed into May. Judges will continue to perform essential services. These actions were taken at the direction of the head of the court system.”
