We are implementing preventive actions out of caution, not panic. We feel this is in the best interest of our community and we appreciate your assistance in keeping our community members safe. City staff are preparing plans for the continuation of municipal services and minimizing risk to employees under the Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines regarding COVID-19.

The Mayor would like to encourage all citizens to practice enhanced social distancing and follow the Center for Disease Control and Preventions recommendations to minimize the spread of COVID-19. A full press release can be found on the city’s website here
