(PRESS RELEASE) – Effective 1:00 p.m. today, March 17th, the Lino Lakes City Hall closed its public-facing services until April 6th in response to the increase in coronavirus cases nationwide.
The City realizes this action will cause a disruption in day-to-day life for many people; however, the health and safety of city residents was the driving factor behind this decision.
Later this afternoon, the Mayor will be declaring a local state of emergency. This action is being taken to protect the health and safety of all residents and employees.
Even though face-to-face visits have been eliminated for at least the next 20 days, City employees will still be available to help the public via email, phone and virtual visits. The City of Lino Lakes is currently working on developing additional ways to deliver services to residents that do not require person-to-person contact during this challenging time.
