3/18/2020 - CITY FACILITIES TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

We are continuing to closely monitor the situation with COVID-19 and have been following the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as those set by our state and local health authorities.

In the interest of public health, effective Friday, March 20, 2020, public access to all city facilities will no longer be available until further notice. City services will still be available by phone, online and mail. City staff will report into their work locations as usual. We are evaluating public hearings and meetings with any significant attendance and exploring alternative approaches to conducting city business. Monday’s City Council meeting will proceed as scheduled, but the amount of people allowed in the meeting space will be limited.

All Parks and Recreation programs, with the exception of the Senior Nutrition Program (drive-through/pick up only), Co-Ed Volleyball League and Mush Softball League, are postponed or canceled at this time. Additionally, all Library programs have been postponed or canceled. We will reevaluate events and programs on an ongoing basis.

Lewiston Transit services will continue until further notice.

“It is our role and responsibility during this time to do everything we can to continue providing essential services to you,” City Manager Alan Nygaard said. “We cannot continue to provide required services if our employees become ill.”
