COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update
Amid ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 (Corona Virus), circumstances beyond our control have forced us to make changes to our normal business practices. Effective immediately, contact with our staff will be done by appointment only. This is to protect your health as well as the health and safety of both residents and staff.
If you have paperwork to turn in for a recert or an interim, please utilize the drop boxes outside each one of our offices. If it is only a few papers, please feel free to send them, via fax at 315-339-9009 – being sure to list who the paperwork is intended for; or by email to the appropriate staff member. I have listed the staff and their email below for each program.
• FOR GENERAL INFORMATION AND/OR APPLICATIONS: Melissa McNeil – email firstname.lastname@example.org
• FOR SECTION 8 – Michelle Nestlerode – email email@example.com
• FOR LIBERTY GARDENS – Tara Nutting – email firstname.lastname@example.org
• FOR SECTION 8 INSPECTIONS – Kathy Stockbridge – email email@example.com
• FOR COLONIAL I – Kathy Loreto – email firstname.lastname@example.org
• FOR COLONIAL II AND VALENTINE – Darcy Puleo – email email@example.com
• FOR EMERGENCIES, CONCERNS OR OTHER QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT MYSELF AT firstname.lastname@example.org
We do expect a higher number of calls with the offices closed and with the possibility of less staff, therefore I do ask that you please be patient during this time. When leaving a message please speak clearly, give your name, apartment #, a return phone number, and subject of what you are calling about; and a member of the staff will return your call.
At this time, our maintenance staff will be responding to emergency work orders only. You may be asked a few more questions than normal when calling in work orders, but that is to help us assess the necessity of the work order being requested. It won't be done until it is deemed necessary.
During this time, we are forced to close off the community rooms at all buildings as we are being asked to help curtail groups to avoid the spread of the virus. If you have reserved the room and have put the deposit down, please note that we will be issuing refunds.
IF YOU OR ANY PERSON THAT YOU LIVE WITH HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS OF ACUTE RESPIRATORY ILLNESS, A FEVER (100.4 OR HIGHER), HAS RECENTLY TRAVELED OUTSIDE OF THE ONEIDA COUNTY AREA OR HAS REASON TO BELIEVE YOU MAY HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY EXPOSED TO COVID-19, PLEASE LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY. ALL INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL IN OUR OFFICE, AND IS FOR PREVENTATIVE PURPOSES ONLY.
Please know and understand that the safety of our residents and our staff is our first priority. We appreciate your patience during this time and will keep you updated on any changes.
Maureen P. Birmingham – Executive Director
