A mailer was sent to Lancaster residents giving them the opportunity to sign up and save 10%. This was discussed at the Town Board meeting on June 1, 2020 when we approved the contract between the Town of Lancaster and Solar Simplified. The mailer was sent by Solar Simplified at no cost to the Town, it was simply sent to give our residents the opportunity for a cost savings.Solar Simplified requested permission to send the letter on my behalf so that people would not think it was a scam and our attorney approved this action. The company used a mail house to send the lettersout and apparently, on the final version, they added a header and left the D off of my first name.
In an effort to keep our community and the town employees safe, we have decided to continue to keep our Town Hall doors locked to the general public. We are conducting business as usual in which you can schedule an appointment ahead of your arrival with the desired department or call the desired department upon your arrival. The Town Hall department numbers are listed on the outside entry doors.
