Drop off center opens for season
The Drop Off Center is now opening for the season, with safety of residents and staff kept in mind. The center is open Saturdays through Nov. 21, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Wednesdays through Sept. 9, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. To maintain safe distancing and to ensure residents and employees' health, attendants will only allow a limited number of vehicles inside the gated area at one time. There may be delays and residents should always follow all guidelines and rules put down by the Centers for Disease Control for wearing masks in public. Payment is due at time of drop-off and checks are accepted, no cash. For information, call 603-432-1100, ext. 193.
Town Hall offers updates
The Londonderry Town Hall remains closed to the public but is still operating as a “virtual” town hall as officials continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation.
During this crisis, most of the transactions for residents can be done online or arranged via phone, email or drop box. Resident questions can and will continue to be answered via phone or email.
And as a very last resort, residents can schedule an appointment at the town offices with the appropriate town personnel to complete a transaction.
Town Hall employees continue working both remotely and on site (in very limited numbers as necessary).
Police and fire departments continue to serve the residents on a “business as usual” basis. However, officials ask that people keep all non-emergency calls to a minimum so that they may devote their time to those residents in need of emergency services.
Anyone with a non-emergency COVID-19 related question can call 211, a state hotline manned 24/7 specifically for questions. If calling 911, officials urge people to accurately describe all symptoms and specify whether you or anyone in your home is under quarantine or awaiting test results due to COVID-19 so first responders may come using the necessary protective gear.
If someone is awaiting pending COVID-19 test results and/or under quarantine, contact the Fire Department to let first responders know that information in the event of a medical emergency. Please use the “Special Medical Information Sheet” used by the Fire Department to alert first responders to other specific needs or precautions provided on the Fire Department webpage under “Forms and Documents.” All information provided is kept confidential by the fire department.
Voter registration updates
The Supervisors of the Checklist are releasing information concerning voter party changes ahead of the September primary election. Although there are still some unknowns, officials want the public to know that June 2 is still the deadline for making those changes. After that date, party affiliation will determine a voter's eligibility to participate in the Democratic or Republican primaries.
As always, anyone registered Undeclared can choose to participate in either primary on election day. But if you are registered as Republican or Democrat, you are only eligible to participate in that particular primary.
In an effort to ensure party changes are possible while Londonderry continues to have virtual Town Hall operations, party change forms will be mailed out to those voters who wish to change their affiliation. Voters may either mail those forms back to Town Hall to the attention of Supervisor of Checklist Chairman Kristin Grages or the form can be scanned/photographed and emailed. Anyone with questions or needing information can reach out to Grages at 603- 682-0259.
