State of the County Address Postponed

Immediate Release

Putnam County Executive

MaryEllen Odell 845-808-1001

March 3, 2021

The State of the County address that Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell delivers each spring has been postponed because of COVID-19 gathering restrictions.

The Special Meeting of the Legislature that is scheduled for Thursday, March 11, will take place as planned, and County Executive Odell will present the Legislature with written materials that satisfy the requirements of the Putnam County Charter. She will not, however, give her prepared address, which was entitled “2021, A Year of Hope and Health.”

“This is the second year in a row that COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to change our plans for the State of the County address,” Odell said. “I’m disappointed. This special meeting always gives us a chance to get together with residents, employees, union leaders, department heads and others and bring everyone up to speed on all that is happening in our county. Still, we must put safety first.”  

The Open Meetings Law has been suspended through March 24, 2021 as per Executive Order 202.95, and a new date for the address has not yet been determined.

The meeting remains open to the public via livestream. To register, go to the Legislative Meetings page of the Putnam County website, at https://www.putnamcountyny.com/legi/
