Most City Facilities Will Reopen As Scheduled Wednesday

City Planning Delayed Openings of Buildings Power is Still Out

Most City facilities will reopen at their regular times and services will resume Wednesday, August 5, 2020. Remember that all of the restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 remain in place, including wearing masks inside public buildings and when unable to maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from other people.

Waste Management will collect Tuesday's route on Wednesday; if crews cannot reach all properties, they will complete the route on Thursday. The rest of the week's collection schedule will slide a day, so Wednesday's collection will be Thursday, and so on.
