Town Supervisor Declares a State of Emergency

The Town of Mt. Pleasant has been made aware (although not through direct communication) that the State and/or City of New York are preparing to house migrants in the Town of Mt. Pleasant (specifically at the Pleasantville Cottage School).  Given this recent development, it is appropriate for the Town to issue a State of Emergency similar to the action taken by other local municipalities.  The Town is without the necessary resources (both at the Town level and at a school level) to handle an influx of migrants to the Town.  Further, the housing of migrants at the Pleasantville Cottage School is illegal as it would violate the Town’s zoning laws. See attached Declaration of Emergency.
