Access to City Services During "Stay at Home" Order

During the time of the Governor's "Stay at Home" order, City employees will still be accessible via e-mail and phone. Phone messages that are left for employees will be forwarded to their e-mails. The only drop box that will be available is next to the door of the Sheriff's substation at 8140 Main. The process to follow for anyone needing to file a zoning permit is described below. Staff will respond to and follow up on as many things as we are able to while complying with the Governor's order.
