CHANGES TO OUR BUSINESS OPERATIONS
To avoid impacts to our operations, we have developed work groups for our employees. Such efforts are made to mitigate any possible adverse impacts to operations in the event that cases of COVID-19 are reported locally.
In compliance with recommendations from federal and state leaders, as well as public health agencies, we have closed our buildings to the public. THIS CLOSURE WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
City Council meetings resumed on April 6, however, the public will not be permitted to attend Council Meetings in person. If you have a comment regarding a piece of legislation, please utilize the comment form on the City’s website. More info
