What to expect at City Hall

Taking steps to keep people safe

As cases of COVID-19 continue to spread in the community, visitors to City Hall are advised to use personal safety measures to keep from catching this highly contagious virus. Make use of the dropbox on the circular drive whenever you have this option.

Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching door handles, stair rails and fixtures that are commonly touched by others. Cover sneezes by using the crock of your arm or a kleenex. Don't get in a crowded elevator.

Employees and visitors at City Hall can choose whether or not to wear a mask. When attending a public meeting, guests may want to wear one since numerous people are in a confined space for several hours. If you've not been fully vaccinated, please consider wearing a mask inside the building and at any city meeting you attend. A mask is recommended for people with a cold or any symptoms since some COVID infections can be mild or similar to other illnesses. Masks are available at City Hall for those who need one.

In-person meetings have resumed at City Hall with an online option (Zoom) for attendees of meetings of City Council.  The Zoom option was also available for meetings of the Planning Commission and the Historic District Commission, but has since been discontinued. All board members, the mayor and council members are required to be present at the meeting location. Agendas are available on the website (see calendar or Agendas/Minutes page).

Inside City Hall, there is clear plexiglass around the reception desk and visitors are advised to keep six feet apart from others.

Do not enter City Hall if you are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, which may include a fever, cough, shortness of breath, severe headache, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell.  The city follows CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine guidelines.
