City of Champaign Temporarily Limits Public Access to City Facilities

City of Champaign Temporarily Limits Public Access to City Facilities

We Are Still Open for Business and Happy to Assist You!

 

Effective immediately, the City of Champaign is temporarily limiting public access to the Champaign Police Department, Champaign Fire Stations, the City Building, and the Public Works Department. This decision is made in the community’s best interest as the City continues consulting with public health officials and countywide leaders to assess the rapidly evolving impact of COVID-19. Today, City Council approved an ordinance implementing Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen’s declaration of emergency.

“We realize this may be an inconvenience to some, however many of the non-emergency services we provide can be completed over the phone or electronically. For those services that cannot be completed online or over the phone, we are evaluating ways to minimize the inconvenience and provide solutions,” said City Manager Dorothy Ann David. “Protecting our employee’s ability to serve, and limiting public access to City facilities is necessary for their well-being and limits COVID-19 exposure for the community.” Public safety services, including police, fire and emergency dispatch services remain fully operational. Due to the closure of City Facilities, payment due dates may be adjusted or late fees waived. The City will release more information next week announcing appropriate accommodations.

The City will continue to provide timely updates, and we encourage you to visit our Facebook page and website for the latest information. We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding as we work through this situation together.

 

Residents can continue to contact City departments by phone, email or fax for information related to city services and events.
