Irondequoit extends State of Emergency

Jul 10, 2017

Officials in the Town of Irondequoit have extended a State of Emergency due to the high water levels on Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay.

Town Supervisor David Seeley will remain in effect for at least 30 more days.

It was first issued in May and then re-issued on June 10th.

The town will work with its neighbors in Penfield and Webster to determine when emergency speed limits are no longer warranted along the bay.

Seeley is directing all departments to take the necessary action to protect life and property, public infrastructure, and provide emergency assistance as needed.
