COVID-19 Response

UPDATED 1/13/2021

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, your elected officials, police department, and city employees are committed to protecting the safety and health of our community.  We urge everyone to comply with measures put in place to slow the spread of the virus, protect our most vulnerable family members, friends and neighbors, and avoid overwhelming our healthcare system.  Everyone's cooperation is vital to get through these uncertain and difficult times together. Thank you!
