Welcome to the Town of Riga's Web Site.
TOWN OFFICE/TOWN COURT INFORMATION
For safety of residents and staff, you are encouraged to continue to conduct business via email, telephone, mail and dropbox. If you do need to come to the Town Hall you will be required to wear a mask before entering the building. Hand sanitizer is available as you walk into the building and in the lobby.
The Town of Riga was scheduled to do an assessment update for the 2021 assessment roll, but it was postponed due to COVID. The Town of Riga will proceed with doing an assessment update for the 2022 assessment roll. Our equalization rate has dropped drastically which not only increases the tax rate, but also reduces the dollar amount of exemptions that people qualify for. Residents no longer receive the full benefit of the exemption. Despite COVID, the sales are still coming in much higher than where assessments are. There’s still a high demand for homes here and very low inventory.
TOWN HALL BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS
Business transactions at the Town Hall can still be completed through the mail, dropbox or by phone call. All receipts for transactions will be mailed out afterwards.

5 Steps to Prepare for COVID-19
Infectious disease experts say most cases of COVID-19 are mild to moderate, like the common cold. But it can be more severe in older adults and people with chronic health conditions.
There are simple steps you can take to help protect yourself and your family.
#1 Make a plan
Create plans for school, work and home.
- Make a list of people and organizations who can help if you become sick. Consider: family, friends, neighbors, carpool drivers, health care providers, teachers, employers, the local public health department, health care services, and other resources like mental health services.
- Join a neighborhood website or social media page to stay connected to neighbors, information, and resources.
- Plan ways to care for family members at risk for serious complications, such as older people and people with chronic health conditions.
#2 Prepare as you would for a winter storm
There is no need to buy large quantities of supplies. But it’s a good idea to pick up a few extra items each time you go to the market or pharmacy. That way, you’re prepared and can avoid crowds.
- Pick up some extra foods like canned goods, dry pasta, and peanut butter.
- Have soap, hand sanitizer, tissues, fever reducers like acetaminophen or ibuprofen on hand.
# 3 Get ready for possible changes in daily schedules
- Make plans to care for your children if schools are closed temporarily. Just like you would for snow days.
- Make plans for alternate after-school care in case they are closed temporarily.
- Ask to work from home or take leave if you or someone in your household gets sick, or if your child’s school is temporarily closed.
#4 Stay informed:
- Stay connected on your state and local health department’s social media pages and websites for timely and accurate COVID-19 information.
- Be aware of false information circulating on the internet. Accurate and up-to-date information is available from the State Health Department at www.health.ny.gov/coronavirus or its hotline at 1-888-364-3065, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website and social media platforms at www.cdc.gov/COVID19
- If you live alone and become sick, you may need to ask for help. If you have a chronic disease and live alone, ask your friends, family, and health care providers to check on you.
- If you decide to attend a public event, practice good health habits.
- Try to keep at least 6 feet of distance between you and others at the event.
- Avoid close contact, such as shaking hands, hugging, and kissing.
- Wash hands often or use a hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
- Avoid surfaces that are touched often, such as doorknobs and handrails.
#5 Prevent the spread of colds, flu and COVID-19
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before you eat.
- Cover your cough and sneezes with a tissue and discard in a closed container.
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Keep a distance of at least 6 feet to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
For people who are sick:
- Stay home.
- Keep sick household members away from others. If you have a separate room that is best.
- Avoid sharing personal items.
- Anyone at high risk for complications should talk to their health care provider for more information.
