The COVID-19 situation is changing regularly. The City is fully engaged and we are making critical decisions based on the guidance of County, State and Federal Public Health Officials to best protect the health and safety of our community. City Hall is currently closed to the public. However, we continue to provide all of the essential services our community counts on. For the latest updates, event cancellations, and closures, visit our web page. Please stay informed, follow public health orders, and do whatever you can to stay home so we can get through this, together, and start our recovery. Thank you for your support during this during this rapidly evolving, unprecedented time.
