COVID-19 Meeting Cancellations

The regular April 2020 meetings of the Gaines Town Board, Planning Board, and Zoning Board of Appeals have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will reconvene in May with the regular meeting schedule. This situation is fluid, and the May meetings may be remotely done, or closed to the public, based on direction from the State of New York. We will post additional information here as we have it.

As posted on the Town’s social media pages, Town business continues to be conducted behind the scenes. The Highway/Water Department is operating normally. The Town Clerk is working a regular schedule, however, the town offices are closed to the public. If you need services from the Town Offices, please contact the Town Clerk via phone at 585-589-4592 or via email at
