The City Commission has also requested a resolution encouraging residents and visitors to use face coverings while in public, to be heard at the next regularly scheduled city commission meeting on Monday, May 11th.

Operations at City Hall continue in a limited capacity as staff maintain best social distancing practices while working either in the office or remotely from home. The City reminds residents and service customers that any payments and application submittals are accepted by telephone and electronic means.

City officials have also worked diligently to provide a central hub of resources for residents and businesses on the city’s website including a video campaign called #JustInCase, highlighting departmental emergency response activities and key messages from city commissioners.
