SPECIAL NOTICE

 

Due to the evolving circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Rockland Industrial Development Agency is postponing regular board meetings indefinitely until further notice.  The State is now allowing electronic meetings (with specific provisions).  During this time, should the Agency need to conduct an in-person or electronic meeting, the State’s “open meeting” guidelines, as amended, will be observed.

 

Apart from board meetings, the Agency will remain open and accessible via telephone and email.  Any in-person meeting will be by appointment.  We encourage you to contact IDA Executive Director Steven Porath at (ph) 845-335-4492 or (email) sporath@rocklandida.com.
