City Hall Mask Policy Update
In order to protect the health and safety of the public and City employees, due to the spread of COVID-19 variant(s) and the City’s obligation to hold in person meetings pursuant to the Open Meetings Law, effective immediately, no one may attend a public meeting or hearing in City Hall or any City owned and operated building without wearing a mask, even individuals who have been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Further, due to the small size of the City Hall Common Council Chamber, often used for public meetings, the number of people who may attend meetings in the Chamber, not including the Council or board members themselves, will be limited to 10 members of the public at any one time. Members of the public who attend public meetings must maintain a social distance of 6 feet. To supplement public access, the City will utilize an “Owl” camera, screen and projector to allow the public to participate in meetings and hearings virtually. Details of those wishing to participate via the Owl can be found on the City’s website.
Anyone who does not comply with this policy shall be removed from City Hall or other property owned and operated by the City.
