City Hall/Utility Facilities Closed to the Public

To limit the community transmission of COVID-19 City Hall and Utility buildings will be closed to the public. During this time, City and utility employees will continue working and remain available via telephone for resident and customer assistance.

We anticipate no interruption in the delivery of core services for public safety and public works, including law enforcement, firefighting, and emergency medical response, along with safe drinking water, sanitary sewer operation, and natural gas operations. To minimize exposure of COVID-19, utility crews will be responding only to emergency calls.

We recognize that the closure of public facilities may cause inconveniences.

Please continue to monitor our City website for further updates.

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
City of Le Center
