  • Everyone is asked to maintain a minimum social distance of 6 feet from other individuals.
  • Visitors will be allowed open access to the lobby and board room but must be escorted for all other areas of the building.

Please do not visit the Romulus Town offices for any reason if you have any of the symptoms currently associated with COVID-19.  A list of those symptoms may be found here:
