Newburgh City Hall reopened its doors to the public Monday after being closed for nearly a week due to a significant cybersecurity attack.
The city announced last week that the attack had disrupted its ability to accept municipal payments for taxes, permits, and tickets.
As of 9 a.m. Monday, city phone and email services are being restored. Payment processing systems will be phased in over the next seven to 10 days.
A grace period will be in place for late property tax, water, sewer, and sanitation payments during this time.
Newburgh City Manager Todd Venning says the city will not rest until residents have their services fully restored.
The attack could cost the city more than half a million dollars to recover from.
