Gay couples in New York have waited for the right to marry and so Sunday, he realizes, is a meaningful day. Therefore, the town hall will be open to approve and perform ceremonies.
“This is all being done by volunteers — myself, town clerk Judith Beville, and we have a bunch of other volunteers who are going to be helping out. So, there won’t be any additional tax payer dollars used,” said Feiner.
Three judges and six new marriage officers will also be on hand.
Feiner says just a few couples have indicated they’ll come to town hall Sunday at noon for a license.
They’re asking couples planning to do so to contact the town clerk by phone at 914-993-1500 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of time.
Right now, the plan is to make licenses available until 2:00 p.m., but that could change with demand.
