City Hall – Stage 3 Reopening

City Hall will begin stage 3 reopening today, July 14, 2020.  Doors will be unlocked and visitors may enter freely, but must still adhere to 6 foot social distancing.  City Hall staff still highly encourage use of the drop box for payments.

Stage 3 Reopening Plan

Stage 3 reopening represents the “new normal” level of service. The doors are reopened to the public and business is more or less as normal.
The building is open to the public. Maintaining social distancing will be important, but also extremely difficult with the small vestibule area available. We ask people to stay six feet apart from others and not to enter if you are sick or experiencing symptoms. Staying six feet apart means only one visitor at the front counter and any other visitors to remain in the front lobby or outside of City Hall until someone else exits.
Janitorial staff will continue enhanced cleaning & disinfecting, but City Hall staff supplement this cleaning with a twice daily sanitation routine (morning and afternoon), sanitizing all frequently touched surfaces. This includes keyboards, screens, mice, and counters.
The Community Hall is open for public use. Events scheduled in the Hall require six-foot separation for social distancing. Staff aren’t expected to police visitor social distancing.

City Hall Stage 1 Reopening Effective June 16, 2020

We are so excited to see you all again; however, we highly encourage all citizens to continue using the drop box for payments.  If you would like to come into City Hall for a receipt of payment, permit applications, begin new services, etc. please just give us a call and we would be happy to schedule you a time to stop in.  Notice our new doorbell just to the East of the main entrance – you may ring that for assistance!  Below is our stage 1 reopening plan.  

Stage 1 Re-opening

Stage 1 reopening represents modified operations.  City Hall will open to the public by appointment only on a modified schedule to allow for enhanced cleaning and social distancing accommodations and signage will be in place. Appointments must be made by calling City Hall at 364-2428.  Please ring the doorbell when you arrive at your appointment time and a staff member will assist you.  City Hall will limit the number of persons in the building to one at a time (not including staff members) in order to maintain social distancing in the vestibule area.  No visitors will be allowed behind the counter in the office area.  All business transactions must be completed through the front counter under the plexiglass pass-through window.  If a receipt is not requested, all payments should be placed in the appropriate container under the pass-through window.  Staff will wear gloves when making any exchange of paper or monies.  Children are not recommended in City Hall at this time but will only be allowed if accompanied by an adult.  Use of the Community Hall will remain closed to the general public.

City Hall staff will maintain a Monday-Friday 8AM – 4 PM modified schedule for the duration of stage 1 reopening in order to allow for extensive cleaning and sanitizing of all high use areas and workstations.  Staff will maintain social distancing, including keeping ample space during the course of normal work. Staff will perform enhanced hygiene measures such as wiping high touch areas, keyboards and workstations regularly throughout the day.  City Hall staff and visitors entering the facility are encouraged to follow CDC and public health guidelines on social distancing, washing hands/using hand sanitizer often and wearing masks will be required by staff and recommended by visitors when social distancing cannot be adhered to.

Merry Christmas

City Hall will be closing at 11:30 am today and will be closed all day December 25, 2019 for Christmas.  The Mayor, Elected Officials and City Staff would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
