TRUMANSBURG, N.Y. — The Town of Ulysses Court is seeking organizations (nonprofit, not for profit, or governmental entities), in or near Ulysses/Trumansburg, who are able to offer opportunities to people to complete court ordered community service. The Court handles violation and misdemeanor offenses that occur within the Town for ages 16 and up.

It would be a relatively simple process, the person doing the community service would be provided a list of opportunities with contact information. He/She would contact the organization that he/she would like to perform the community service. If the organization decides to accept the person (can interview first) to do community service, the organization and the person would set up a schedule.

Upon completion of the community service (or a portion thereof) a representative from the organization would provide a brief statement, on the organization’s official letterhead, to the Court. The statement would contain the organization contact information, the representative’s name, the commencement date, conclusion date, the person’s name who performed the community service, and the number of total hours completed.

The Court may, at times, seek out verification (usually via phone call) to the organization to confirm completion of the indicated number of community service hours.
