In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor’s executive order that limits staffing, services and person-to-person interaction, Hempstead Town Hall is closed to the public as of March 23, 2020, until further notice. Supervisor Don Clavin announced efforts to ensure that the Town of Hempstead’s essential services operate at the most efficient and safe manner during this health crisis.
Clavin has established a new auto-attendant system that can be used to leave a message to schedule a telephone conference for the Building Department, Town Clerk, Receiver of Taxes and the Parks Department: (516) 812-3600. You can also send questions to these departments at the following emails:
For other departments, please send an email. For a departmental list of email addresses, visit the town’s web page at https://hempsteadny.gov/directory. The main number at 516-489-5000 is still operating during normal business hours, but due to limited staff at town offices, it is highly recommended to utilize the 812-3600 hotline (Buildings, Town Clerk, Receiver of Taxes and Parks) or send an email to the department for the most expeditious response.
“We are closely monitoring the ever-changing situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and we are making adjustments that best serve the residents of America’s largest township in a safe, healthy and helpful manner,” Clavin said.
In addition, based on the Governor’s guidelines, the indoor pool complex at Echo Park and public community rooms at township parks remain closed.
“I thank all residents for their patience as we work together to get past the COVID-19 pandemic,” Clavin said. “The most important aspect of this is to ensure the health and safety of the public and our workforce, while continuing to provide essential services for America’s largest township.”
