City Further Restricts Access to City Buildings
Beginning Monday, March 30, the City of Hopkinsville is further restricting access to its facilities declaring all city buildings closed to the general public until further notice in efforts to continue to combat the spread of coronavirus. Mayor Wendell Lynch noted, “Foot traffic at public buildings has already been greatly reduced since March 15; however, in keeping with the latest order by Governor Beshear and understanding the critical nature of the next few weeks, we are further reducing staff reporting to offices at the Public Works Department and City Hall including the city’s Administration Department (City Administrative Office, City Clerk, Finance, Human Resources, and Mayor’s Offices) and the Hopkinsville Human Rights Commission.”
Business at Community & Development Services is being conducted by appointment or phone only. City Administrative and Public Works staff will continue to assist those with inquiries and city business electronically and via the phone to the extent possible. The Tax Office drive-thru, located at 715 South Virginia Street, will continue to be accessible during regular business hours for open-records requests, supply deliveries, inquiries, and city job and internship application submissions. At this time, public safety operations of Hopkinsville Fire & EMS as well as Police & ECC Departments will continue uninterrupted.
