Today, March 17, 2020, City staff met to discuss the continued efforts of the fight against COVID-19 and is notifying the public of the following updates:
All Public City Board Meetings are canceled with the exception of City Council, which may use alternative means of communication to meet. We do not have a definite timeline for these changes yet, but will continue to stay in contact with the public once we can resume normal function. The City is holding steady with “Less than 10” recommended group gatherings and encourages the public to do the same.
City of Wabasha Utility Employees will be working with infrastructure needs only and not public-in-home water/sewer concerns unless an emergent situation surfaces.
City of Wabasha EMS are continuing to evaluate call situations, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and Wabasha Fire Department has procedures in place to assist EMS as needed. Precautions are in place to utilize limited personnel and equipment for calls with suspected symptoms.
City Hall is asking the public to utilize the drop boxes for water/sewer bills, located on the corner by the post office and at City Hall, or online payment which is available on the city webpage (www.wabasha.org). Please limit the need to enter City Hall if at all possible.
All City of Wabasha staff are following recommendations to ensure the safety of ourselves and the community. We will continue to monitor the situation and give updates when necessary.
