ALBION – In anticipation of the first major snow storm of this year, Orleans County officials have decided to delay the opening of the County Offices until 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

“Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our workers and our residents we are delaying the opening of our County Offices until 11 a.m. on Tuesday,” said Orleans County Chief Administrative Officer Jack Welch.

This delay will allow the Department of Public Works to plow the parking lots and shovel the sidewalks prior to our opening to the public at 11 a.m. This delay in opening should allow the majority of workers a safer commute into work with the anticipated amount and duration of snowfall which is set to begin this evening.

Employees who are not involved in our public safety operations or our Department of Public Works operations should delay their report to work until 11 a.m. on Tuesday. For any residents who have appointments between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., we will do our best to accommodate those appointments prior to the end of the workday on Tuesday.

From Orleans County Clerk Nadine Hanlon: “Due to Orleans County Offices delaying their opening until 11 a.m. tomorrow, Orleans County DMV customers who had appointments scheduled between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 16, will be allowed to come to DMV, by checking in first with security, to have their appointments honored until 4 p.m. that afternoon.  We ask for patience as we still will need to follow COVID protocols.”
