To combat the spread of COVID-19 throughout the Town’s various governmental offices and departments all town offices with the exception of Police, Fire and Ambulance Services will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, November 18, 2020 through Friday, December 4, 2020. Some town employees have either tested positive for Coronavirus or have been in contact with others who have tested positive.
Town offices will be working remotely, while department Directors will be receiving mail or other deliveries via a newly installed Drop Box at Town Hall located at 7820 Broadway. All departments will be available via their regular office telephone numbers as well as email addresses. As always, any emergency reporting should use 9-1-1 to reach emergency services including Police, Fire or Ambulance Services.
The Public Works (Street Department) will work staggered shifts and leaf collections will continue. There may be some delays, so we ask for patience as our dedicated crews complete this year’s collections. Snow plowing, if needed, will be provided with full crews.
All regularly scheduled meetings will take place via ZOOM and will be posted via the town website, Facebook page, and will be shared with the media so residents interested may tune into the meetings including Town Council meetings, Plan Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, and any other committee meetings that take place during the closure period.
The closure is being done out of an abundance of caution due to the current level of spread of COVID-19 within town offices as well as throughout our county and state.
Please be safe and practice social distancing as well as use face coverings as we continue to fight this terrible pandemic. Be well, stay safe. -Rick Bella
