An update from Supervisor Depo;

  1. The Town of Jay Community Center Gym is closed until further notice. We felt that this was a necessary measure in order to help stop the spread of the corona virus. It is an extremely large space and we did not feel that we could safely keep it disinfected.
  2. Extra measures are being taken to ensure that the Town Offices are being cleaned and disinfected on an aggressive schedule. Hard surfaces and restrooms are regularly wiped down with quality cleaning products.
  3. The Supervisors Office is staffed and conducting regular town business, however, we are requesting that if at all possible you contact us by phone or e-mail with any requests or questions so as to keep in compliance with Governor Cuomo’s request for social distancing. Please do not hesitate to contact us via phone at 518-647-2204 or by e-mail at or 

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate the days and weeks ahead. Residents of the Town of Jay have dealt with difficult situations in the past and have always pulled together with kindness and community spirit. I have no doubts that we will approach this situation with the same strength and courage. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.


Notice is hereby given pursuant to Article 40, Section 1650 of New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law that certain roads within the Town of Jay will be posted on or about as of March 20, 2020 to any motor vehicle in excess of seven (7) tons.

Per Town of Jay Supervisor Archie Depo; I have been made aware of several posts and discussions regarding the upcoming Public Hearing on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 6:00 pm at the Town of Jay Community Center. It is important that the community be aware of several facts. First, at this point the ordinance in question is “proposed “which means it does not go into effect without Town Board approval by Resolution and this Board has not voted on the future of this ordinance, nor have they passed a Resolution in favor of adopting it. The second point is that this ordinance was drafted as a result of a group of Town of Jay residents who attended a recent Town of Jay Town Board Meeting and presented their request to have such an ordinance adopted in the Town of Jay. The purpose of calling this Public Hearing is to create a possibility for any and all concerned citizens to attend and speak their opinions. As Supervisor, I encourage you to attend and share your opinions before the Board votes on this draft ordinance. Please remember that this is your Town and I strongly encourage you to attend and make your voices heard.
