The Town and Village of Lake George are working hard to provide timely, accurate information about the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, its impacts on our local community and what the local governments are doing to respond and how we are working with Warren County and New York State.

Please know we are doing our absolutely best with the limited staff and resource we have to address all the concerns, questions and complaints coming into our offices regarding the pandemic, response, recovery and business operations. Please be patient with us while we adjust to these new rules and regulations that change on a daily basis, and while we figure out how to navigate this “new normal”.
