SCHUYLER COUNTY–A new electronic sign was recently installed in front of the county courthouse on Franklin Street in Watkins Glen. The sign will be used to promote community events and health information, in addition to sharing emergency messages, when needed.
“We are excited to have the new LED sign up and running,” shared Schuyler County Public Health Director Jill Kasprzyk. “The sign is a great place to learn about events going on in the community like the history walks the historical society organizes, rabies vaccination clinics, and community festivals. We are happy to be able to provide this message board for the community again.”
The new sign replaced an older LED sign that had been in place since 2013. The sign was replaced thanks to a joint effort by the Schuyler County community services and public health departments.
If you are interested in getting a message on the new LED sign, you can submit a request through the Schuyler County website. Visit or click on “How Do I...” on the top banner of the county’s website and click on “Have a message placed on the LED sign?”
Schuyler County Public Health also provided the following information about the sign:
• Please submit any message requests at least two weeks prior to the message start date.
• Messages promoting for-profit businesses, personal congratulations, birthdays, and other similar subjects are not allowed on the sign.
• Submitted messages may be edited for clarity or to ensure the text can fit on the sign.
