Subject:  Change in operations at City Hall including Municipal Light and Water

In an effort to protect our people, both constituents and employees, we are restricting access to City Hall and Municipal Light and Water as of 8:00 a.m. Thursday, March 19th, 2020 until further notice.

We are asking those who need to conduct business in City Hall to call the numbers that will be provided on our website, or the number that you are accustom to calling to conduct business with the various departments of the City.  You will be given a time to meet with a representative of the department that you are looking for and will be able to get your business transacting as quickly as possible.  We will be staffing all departments as usual and ask for your cooperation as we try to maintain the services that you deserve and expect from the City.

This process will remain in effect until further notice.  We will do our best to update everyone on any changes that are needed to be made to this situation as we move forward in dealing with the COVID-19 situation.
