Closure of Emily City Hall to Public

Web posted March 24, 2020
In an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus the City of Emily will close the doors of the Emily City Hall/Community Center and all public City buildings to the public until the governor’s peacetime state of emergency has ended. City facilities will be closed to visitors starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

The City of Emily will continue to provide “essential City services”, including police patrols, emergency response services, and sewer treatment. Office and Maintenance staff will continue to work, but office staff may be working remotely. Any council or commission meetings have either been cancelled or will be conducted by electronic means.

This closure includes the cancellation of all City Hall programs, activities, and events, including pickleball, yoga, exercise, dance, and all other activities, such as quilting. The closure also includes the City of Emily Public Library.

The Emily Emergency Food Shelf leases a City building, but is not included in the Council’s statement because they are a private entity.

Please be patient during the City’s response efforts and feel free to contact the Clerk’s Office with questions or concerns at 218-763-2480 or clerk@emily.net.
