The Orange County Office of Community Development and the Orange County Department of Social Services are collaborating on the administration of federal funding to address needs within our County related to rental housing stemming from the COVID pandemic. To better understand those needs we are hoping that you will share this attached survey with landlords in your community and post on your webpage and social media. If they provide their email address, we will add them to our email contact list regarding potential financial assistance for them and their tenants.

We have federal funds available now to assist those who are experiencing domestic violence, living in unsafe conditions, living in the home of another person, living in a hotel or motel, or do not have a home of their own. If you know of someone who can be assisted with these funds, please have them call the Orange County Crisis Call Center at 311 or email Terri Torchio, Director of Economic Independence at [email protected] to see if they qualify for immediate rapid rehousing financial assistance. OCDSS has other assistance available to those in need including Temporary Assistance, Child Care, Home Energy Assistance or Medicaid.

Thank you and please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Sincerely,

Nicole Andersen, GPC
Director
Orange County Office of Community Development

Frontier Fiber Optic Work
Occurring in the Village of Monroe


December 10, 2020

Good Afternoon Village of Monroe Residents,

Many of you may have already seen trucks in and around the Village of Monroe performing utility work in our neighborhoods and in our streets.

I would like to share with you that this company, SQUAN Solutions, has been contracted on behalf of Frontier Communications to run new fiber optic throughout the Village of Monroe and surrounding areas. There are multiple crews working in multiple areas within our community, and we are working on getting a better idea of where they have already completed work, where they will be working going forward and when. When we have more detailed information we will share it on the Village's website (www.villageofmonroe.org) as well as through Constant Contact.

In many areas these fiber optic cables are being run underground and may result in the utility workers digging in the Village's right of ways. Any disturbance that may be created by this work will be remedied and replaced in kind. Please note that if it requires the replacement of grass, new seed will be planted in the spring when the weather conditions are more accommodating for seed germination.

Should you have any questions regarding this work or any other work that you see occurring in our Village, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I can be reached by calling the Village of Monroe's Clerk's Office at 782-8341.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while Frontier completes this much needed work.

Sincerely,
Neil S. Dwyer
Mayor
