Due to the City Council’s declaration of a local emergency and subsequent shelter-in-place orders caused by the COVID-19 public health crisis, City Hall administrative offices are closed to the public beginning March 17, 2020 until April 7, 2020 or until further notice.  Essential City services which include Police, Fire, Utilities and public infrastructure will continue to operate, however all other face-to-face interaction and customer services will be provided remotely, by either phone or email.

*If you are submitting a Public Records Act request, please be advised that in-person inspections and pickup of records are on hold until City Hall re-opens. Additionally, there may be delays to the production of records, however the City Clerk’s Office will make every effort to provide records electronically and timely. We appreciate your patience during these unparalleled circumstances.
