Access to City Hall restricted until September 8, 2020

Mayor Tyler Moore has proactively decided to temporarily restrict public access to the second and third floors of City Hall until September 8, 2020, due to a few recent positive COVID-19 cases in the building. Additionally, city employees in those departments have been given the option to telework or to furlough during this time.

The decision was made in order to properly quarantine those employees who may have been affected and to prevent the possibility of exposure to the public and to other employees. Fortunately no one who deals daily with members of the general public were affected, so citizens should not be concerned with recent trips made to City Hall for services.

"With all of the positive steps Kokomo and Howard County have taken toward mitigating the spread of the the virus, we want to be responsive to this fluid situation and protect everyone as best we can,' said Mayor Moore. 'While it may be a minor inconvenience for some this week, we know this is the best response we can take to protect everyone at this time. We appreciate the citizens' patience and understanding as we work through this. Placing these restrictions until Sept 8 gets us past the 10-14 day period suggested by the CDC and local Department of Health."

Citizens can still conduct business at City Hall and should contact the appropriate department by email or by phone for other options. Wastewater utility customers can pay online at www.cityofkokomo.org or by using the drop box in the south parking lot of City Hall. Information and reports from the Kokomo Police Department can also be requested at the first floor service window or by calling 456-7108
