WATERTOWN — The Town of Watertown is working with local restaurant owners who are preparing to open for outside dining to assist and advise them on securing the areas where patrons will be seated.

Appropriate barricades are being provided at no charge to restaurants that need them to insure everyone’s safety.

Six applications have been received and an equal number have contacted the town seeking further information.

“We remain committed to our business community and will continue to assist them with resources wherever possible,” said Interim Town Manager John Gavallas.

With the exception of the Board of Education, all town offices are now working under one roof at the new Watertown Town Hall.

Town offices are still closed to public access. Officials are targeting Monday, June 1 as a reopening date for the public to transact town business.

All members of the public will be required to wear masks when entering the building.

“We are continuing to put together protocols to ensure the safety of both our employees and the public once we reopen the building,” said Mr. Gavallas.
