COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa - Council Bluffs is now restricting public access to city buildings that include including City Hall, Public Works buildings, Police Headquarters, and Fire Headquarters and the Recycling Center. This went into effect Wednesday.
“One of our top priorities as your city government is public safety,” said Mayor Matt Walsh. “We’re doing everything we can to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 virus, and that includes restricting public access to City buildings. As we monitor the rapidly evolving situation, we will continue to adapt and make changes as needed to continuously protect the people of Council Bluffs.”
The Council Bluffs Recycling Center has closed and will not be accepting drop-offs until further notice.
Buildings will be closed, but many services will still be provided, and staff will continue to ensure essential services are maintained. Services will be available by phone, email, the City’s website, or special appointment. Special appointments are based on availability.
All deadlines for permits, licenses and fines have been suspended until further notice.
