Midvale City Hall, Justice Court & Public Works open with distancing guidelines and modified operations

Post Date:05/20/2020 12:45 PM
Midvale City Hall, Justice Court, and Public Works have reopened to the public under modified operations. The modified operations are intended to protect city employees and the public, while allowing employees to continue providing services to the community as part of the City’s plan for response and recovery of the coronavirus pandemic.

With this in mind, City staff will provide services to our community in new and different ways. Throughout all City’s facilities, social distancing of at least six feet by everyone must be maintained. The City has placed personal space markers in public areas, and customers should follow these markers as they conduct their business.

We encourage residents to continue to access services by phone and online. Below is a summary of modifications at city facilities and adjustments to operations. These guidelines and modifications will be updated as we move through the various recovery plan phases and all restrictions on the public are lifted.
