Based on the Declaration of a State of Emergency by the Wabasha City Council the following actions are being taken by City Staff Officials:

  1. Effective for the March utility billing (received in April) and April utility billing (received in May) the City of Wabasha will not be charging late fees for late payment.  The City will review this after the April billing to possibly extend this period.  For those utility bills that were due on March 15 the late fees are still owed.  If you have been assessed late fees for the March 15th due date and would like to request a waiver please contact City Hall.  We will review your payment history and use this in our decision to reduce the late fees.
  2. Effective immediately we have suspended any solicitor (peddler) permits that have been issued and will deny any further permits until the State of Emergency has lapsed.  If you encounter any door to door salesmen or otherwise please contact the non-emergency police number at 651-565-3361.
  3. All buildings in public parks will remain locked and winterized until the State of Emergency is over.
  4. City Hall will remain open at this time with hours to the public between 9AM – 4PM however we do ask that you limit your interaction where you can.  There is a drop box for payments located in City Hall parking lot and one on the corner by the US Post Office.  If you have any other questions or issues that you would like to discuss we ask that you please call City Hall first 651-565-4568 and if possible the business will be transacted over the phone.  Any face to face interaction will be used as a last resort.

The city will continue to communicate any information once it is available.  We are planning to continue the daily updates in the short term unless we feel there is no new information to share.  Please stay tuned to the CDC website, the Minnesota Department of Health and daily updates from Federal and State Officials.  Again, watch over your neighbors and families during these times.
