“We are working diligently to provide essential services to residents who need them. Our police, fire and EMS services are fully functional and continue to provide the best service and response to the community”, said Mayor John Pribonic. “We are disappointed to have to close our buildings to the public, however the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and our employees is of the greatest concern. When it comes to resident safety, we will always err on the side of caution."
