COVID-19 Village Response
Please know that the Village of Fayetteville has been working with Onondaga County, Town of Manlius and the other villages on plans and procedures to deal with this coronavirus (COVID-19). The village has a pandemic plan that has been updated, and is currently in effective. This working document & plan is what will be used to get us thru this important time in our history. We will be making decisions rapidly on the status of village meetings, functions and all governmental operations for the entire village government. Please be assured that we are doing everything in our plan to keep our employees, residents and services that we provide as safe as possible.
We ask for you to keep going to our village website for information as well as changes in the way we operate our day to day business.
We ask that you and your families stay safe and follow all the CDC guidelines outlined on the CDC web site. We will continue to operate this plan until the pandemic has eased to the point where we can resume normal operations.
All village buildings are closed to visitors effective March 16, 2020 which include the village hall, the fire house and the DPW garage. The Fayetteville Senior Center is also closed completely until at least March 30th.
The village parks are currently open but any exercise and playground equipment is off-limits until further notice.
Clerk’s Office: (315)637-9864
DPW garage: (315)637-6065
Fire/Police: 911 for emergencies;
FFD firehouse (315) 637-6101 for non-emergencies; police station (315)682-2212
The Village of Fayetteville will continue to deliver all essential services, as usual, such as sanitation and Fire services, with some modifications to operations to ensure safety for both the employees and the residents.
The village departments will continue to respond to inquiries and/or request via phone, email, or by appointment when needed, as best as possible.
The village DPW will continue regular trash pickups, emergency sewer calls and any needed snow removal, while wearing personal protective gear and sanitizing the vehicles and garage as necessary.
Fayetteville Fire Department have postponed all non-essential outside activities. This includes smoke detector inspections and installs, car seat checks and installations, and non-emergent visits. The open house planned for April 25th will be postponed. BUT there will be NO CHANGE to all essential activity including fire alarm and medical alarm responses. This policy will stay in place until further notice. Due to the potential spread of the corona virus your Fayetteville Fire Department first responders may take extra steps to ensure their safety. They may look different when they arrive on the scene of a call, wearing personal protection equipment from just gloves, to gloves, eye protection and an N-95 mask, to possibly wearing full Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), gloves and protective coveralls. The purpose of these protocols is to keep the professionals providing care safe and to take appropriate steps to keep any virus from spreading.
The Justice Court office is closed and all matters have been administratively adjourned until further notice. There are no regular court dates scheduled at this time.
The Town of Manlius Police and the Fayetteville Fire Department are taking every precaution to protect the health safety of both the first responders and the community while they continue to deliver core public safety duties.

Please note that due to the current situation, and with many people coming home and staying home, the Town of Manlius Police Dept. will not be enforcing the No Overnight Street Parking (that typically is in effect until April 15th.) Hopefully, we will not have any large snow events during this time, but if so, they will be managed without enforcement of no street parking.
