Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I am asking for your help as the town is currently undertaking an important updating of our registry of homebound and medically impaired individuals. The registry will provide our emergency responders with advanced notice of individuals who may require special attention in the event of an emergency.
Registration is voluntary, and we want to make certain that all homebound and physically impaired individuals with special needs and want to self-identify are included in the registry. Please contact your family and friends and make them aware of this town wide effort.
Here is the link to the Waterford special needs registration form: Registration Form This form can be filled out and submitted online
Also, and very importantly, the registry will be shared with the Saratoga County Department of Public Health to identify individuals who are physically unable to travel to COVID-19 vaccination sites. These individuals should be considered for vaccination in their homes and included in any home delivery vaccination plan Saratoga County may implement.
I will be contacting our business owners, and community organizations to ask for their support in raising awareness of this effort. I am confident that as a community we can make certain that our most vulnerable and at-risk residents are made aware of this important information. Please contact Paul McInerney, Assistant to Public Safety Commissioner, at 518-590-0932 if you have any questions or want additional information.
Also, please continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing as recommended by CDC so our community remains as safe and healthy as possible.
Waterford Town Supervisor
