We ask you to allow Public Works staff to conduct site inspections alone to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If this is not possible, you must maintain a social distance of 6-feet or more. Under certain circumstances, we may waive pre-construction meetings.
Public Works is doing what we can to mitigate risk to the public and our staff. We hope by taking these steps we can help slow the spread of the virus in our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this unprecedented time.
