City of Minot services continue to operate on normal schedules during the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City on Thursday closed almost all of its buildings to members of the public without appointments, but all offices are functioning as normal, said Mayor Shaun Sipma.
“Although we’ve made operational adjustments to help reduce the spread of this virus locally, I want to reassure the community that the City of Minot is committed to providing its usual services to residents,” Sipma said. “Our Police Department and Fire Department employees remain at work and ready to respond, Public Works employees are performing their typical duties like sanitation collection and street repairs, and our Water Treatment Plant is operating normally.”
Public Works Director Dan Jonasson said while Public Works buildings and the Water Treatment Plant are closed to members of the public without appointments, employees at all City of Minot facilities are working their normal schedules.
“Our Water Treatment Plant is staffed 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and the facility is currently operating at normal levels,” Jonasson said, adding that the City’s storm sewer and sanitary sewer systems are operating normally, too.
Jonasson said residents with water service emergencies should call 852-0111.
The mayor encourages residents to continue following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention relating to personal hygiene and social distancing.
“We want everyone to take the CDC’s advice seriously; wash your hands and continue practicing social distancing throughout our community,” Sipma said. “And please avoid unnecessary over-purchasing when you are shopping. Hoarding items harms our friends and neighbors.”
