Finance Department

(MARCH 18, 2020) Tompkins County is temporarily reducing its onsite workforce in compliance with an executive order issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On March 16, Cuomo ordered local governments to pare down workforces as the COVID-19 situation evolves. This allows non-essential personnel to work from home or take leave. These measures will reduce, temporarily, the County’s onsite workforce by 60%.
