BURRILLVILLE – Town Manager Michael Wood announced this week that Burrillville Town Hall, the town Annex, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Jesse Smith Library buildings and the Extended Care program, would be closed to the public starting Wednesday, March 18, until further notice.

Residents with necessary business, such as payment of tax bills, are instructed to call (401) 568-4300 and connect with the extension of the appropriate department for instructions. An on-site, outside lockbox is available for tax payments. g

The town also offers many on-line services, and contact information that can be found by going to www.burrillville.org and clicking the “Online Services” link at the bottom of the home page.

The Town Clerk’s office will accept land evidence recording by appointment only.  Those who can send land evidence in the mail, are asked to do so, or to call the Town Clerk’s office about making an appointment.

The Burrillville Police Department is open for business on their normal business schedule and police operations are not impacted.

The Public Works Department announced on Wednesday that trash and recycling collection remains on schedule. The Whipple Avenue Recycling and Compost center will retain normal business hours, but the department itself is closed to the public. Those who need overflow bags are instructed to visit Brigido’s IGA in Pascoag.

The town’s annual Easter Egg Hunt and Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, originally scheduled for March 28, has also been cancelled indefinitely.

“We will continue to use Code Red phone messages, our town’s web sites and social media to update the town on future service availability,” Wood said in a notice.

“The Burrillville Town Council and Administration thank you for your patience while we all work through the COVID-19 nation-wide emergency,” Wood wrote.

Residents are reminded that plans and schedules are subject to change.
