A Message from the Mayor
The staff at the City of Le Center is working hard to provide important services to our residents. However, in order to combat the spread of the coronavirus and to protect both residents and staff, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily restrict public access to City Hall. We know that people will need to connect with their city and utility, so we have a drop box located outside City Hall for any drop-offs, and we remain available via phone (507-357-4450).
I ask that we all heed the advice of medical professionals, take care of ourselves and our families, and that we help our neighbors and those at risk during these challenging times.
Mayor Josh Fredrickson
