In an indication City Hall is closing, the City of Maricopa introduced curbside service in a website announcement today.
“City Hall may be closing to the public, but that does not prevent our committed staff from serving you,” the City posted to its site. The curbside service is set to start Monday.
City spokesperson Ellen Buddington confirmed the decision. “City Hall’s physical doors will close to the public but we will be open for curbside service only starting Monday, March 23 during normal City Hall hours of operation. Most City business will continue via utilizing multiple electronic formats/media as well.”
While many services are already available online, those who need to come to City Hall are asked to pull up at the front entrance and call 520-568-9098 for service. Those services will be available during City Hall’s regular business hours, Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
At the same time, City Manager Rick Horst posted a letter to the community. “While our physical doors may close, our virtual doors will open. While exercising sound virus containment practices, we remain ready, willing and able. We know there are varying opinions regarding what should and should not be done. We seek to balance the reality of the situation with the reality of human need.”
