Thanks to COVID-19 and the community-wide intent to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, Glenrock’s Town Hall is officially closed to the public until further notice, according to Town Clerk Tammy Taylor.

 

“We will be working normal business hours but doors will be locked. We will be doing business via phone or email,” Taylor said Saturday.

 

Payments can be mailed, dropped off in the drop box at the front of Town Hall or paid online, she explained.

 

“The town will be waiving any late fees and we will not be doing any disconnects due to non-payment until further notice.  If anyone needs a meeting, they can call and schedule a time with one of us.”

 

Town council is scheduled to meet Monday evening March 23 at 7 p.m. in council chambers and will take place, however Taylor said they are asking the public not to attend.

 

“We are going to be live-streaming it as usual on YouTube under Glenrock Town Hall. We may also stream (the meeting) on Facebook, but I’m not sure about that yet. There will be a way for people watching on YouTube to type messages if necessary,” she said.

 

Should anyone need anything to be presented before council at the Monday night meeting, Taylor said they should email the information to her and she will see what she can do.

 

“The only thing on the agenda right now is a resolution to allow council to conduct meetings via teleconference. We’re checking with the state to see how they want us to handle these meetings, as just with the council members and department heads, we already exceed their 10-person limit,” she said.

 

Governor Mark Gordon supported an additional statewide order issued March 20 prohibiting gatherings of 10 people or more in a single room or confined space. The order also offers several exemptions.

 

State health officer Dr. Alexia Harrist signed the new order, which started immediately. The order supplements a statewide order issued the day before which closed bars, restaurants, theaters, gymnasiums, some child care facilities and schools. Both orders remain in effect until April 3.

 

Converse County Public Health has shared a form for retailers to file for an exemption regarding the COVID-19 guidelines.

 

“If you are a business and you are interested in looking at it (and) possibly filing for an exemption, you can find the form and instructions on our website,” Taylor said.
