CHANGES TO CEDAR CITY SERVICES (Grouped by Department)

POSTED 3/24/2020 AT 2:00 PM


With the new developments of recent cases of the coronavirus (Covid-19) in both Washington and Iron Counties, the City will be closing all of our offices to the public, except by appointment. We know that this creates a problem for some people, but we do have facilities set in place, which we hope will accommodate most of our residents.

We would like to remind our residents that most City business can be conducted over the phone, on the website or via email.
There is a new dropbox for utility payments in the lobby outside of the City offices for those of you who would like to pay your bills "in person". We strongly encourage residents to use online services or phone calls whenever possible for the safety of our staff and residents.

For a complete list of departments and services available, please visit our website at Department Directory

We will be posting updates as they become available to us and will try to get the most up to date information out to our residents.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

CEDAR CITY LIBRARY

Cedar City Library will be closed as of Wednesday, March 18th, 2020.  At this time, we are unable to waive fines.  If you need to return books, please drop them off at our book drop on the Northside of the building.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  You can also renew items by calling us at 435-586-6661 or emailing us at ereference@cedarcity.org.

Exercising an abundance of caution and in conformity with the suggestions of government leaders and many in the medical community, the Cedar City Library will experience a temporary closure effective after the end of business sanitizing, painting, and general building maintenance. Certain enhancements to our catalog and the way material is located will be implemented. Capitalizing on a period of low attendance as well as a time that calls for cautious and prudent behavior ensures that this closure will impact the fewest number of patrons. Please take advantage of our eBook and eAudio resources, databases, and other online resources. We will make daily updates to social media. Thank you for your patronage.

Steve Decker, Library Director.

Heritage Center and Festival Hall will be closed to the public until April 1st, 2020.
