We're Still Open
Mayor Kaufusi announced today a shift toward recovery plans for Provo City in line with Governor Herbert's move from "high" to "moderate" risk for the state. Our city will Proceed with Caution as some previously closed City facilities will reopen with restrictions.
One area that isn't seeing much in the way of new changes is the Council office. Although the State's COVID-19 guidelines moved Council and other meetings online, the Council office itself has been open to the public this entire time. At least one of our staff is there in the office to help as needed and the rest are working from home. Councilors and staff continue to be reachable by phone call and email.
With the shift in risk level there will be a gradual move to more work happening in the Council office and the City Center building instead of remotely. Extra precautions will be taken to maintain social distancing and clean high touch surfaces like tables, doors, light switches, etc. We will, of course, be keeping an eye on things to make adjustments as needed to protect the health of our employees and the public.
Council meetings scheduled for May and June will continue to be held remotely. The same is also true for neighborhood meetings. Please follow the Council's Facebook page to keep up with the latest information.
