During budget discussions in February of this year, estimates were included to renovate the front lobby of City Hall to provide additional security and improve the safety of our government building. This project was approved to be completed within the current budget. Now that we have encountered a global pandemic, this renovation is even more critical to help protect the health of not only our employees but the public that enters the building. We feel that moving forward with the construction while keeping City Hall closed will create minimal interruption while allowing it to be completed as quickly as possible.
Please know that our staff continues to work from City Hall, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. Despite the change to our traditional ways of operation, we are committed to providing professional service to our customers. You may pay your utility bill online or over the phone, or by dropping it off at one of the two drop boxes as City Hall. The fee to use a credit/debit card will remain waived during the building closure. Fishing/boating permits for the city reservoir will continue to be waived. And our staff will assure that any items of business that would normally be completed at the front counter will continue to be accomplished. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call at 816-230-5577 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
