Domain Change Notice

To whom it may concern:

Local governments in New York State may soon be required to use a domain name ending with a .gov. We plan on being proactive with this change by starting the move to our new domain,, this week (6/1).  

What does this mean for users of sites offered by us at Essex County? Well it means that you may notice that some of our sites using our current domain may not work properly or may even be offline for short periods of time until the move to the .gov domain is complete.  

Once finished, old site domains should automatically redirect to new site domains. So bookmarks and old links should continue to work. 

Please excuse us ahead of time for this necessary downtime and for any inconvenience caused by this maintenance period as we work to improve the web services we offer at Essex County.
