Mayor Coughlin, City Council and Administration have planned, prepared and responded to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). We have been diligently working to effectively address this for the safety and health of our residents and employees. We are urging everyone to practice everyday preventative measures like washing your hands with soap and water, if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.  avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; stay home when you are sick, especially if you have a fever above 100 degrees.  These practical measures will help reduce the spread of the virus. It is recommended that if you are sick, the first thing to do is call your Primary Care Physician, do not visit the Emergency Room or Urgent Care until you are instructed to go there by your doctor. Please refer to the links to the CDC below for more information:



Citywide Yard Sale and Big Bang Cancelled

For the Safety of our City, we are cancelling the Citywide Yard Sale and the Big Bang that we had scheduled for this year.  The City is asking that until the mandatory self-isolation is lifted from the Federal Government, that no one in the City have a yard sale on their own.  We are constantly monitoring the advice from the Federal Government and the CDC and we will be keeping the public informed on our website as information becomes available to us.  The Mayor, Council and Administration thanks everyone for their cooperation  during this pandemic.
