What is the City Doing
We are Implementing MDH recommendations - The City of Willmar is following the guidelines outlined by the CDC including social distancing measures with staff and the public, and reducing or canceling some meetings and activities. We are also working closely with Kandiyohi Emergency Management, and public safety officials, along with EMS, and county and state partners to protect our community.
We are Planning - Like all Minnesota cities, the City of Willmar takes the COVID-19 pandemic extremely seriously and is proactively working to minimize public health risk. Essential services — including public safety, emergency services, public works, and water and sewer utilities — will continue, as usual, however, as of Tuesday, March 17th., the City of Willmar has temporarily closed all City buildings to the public to protect our citizens and staff during this pandemic. If a citizen needs to conduct business, please contact the numbers listed below for each respective building/department and City Staff will make every effort to assist you.
What Can You Do
Don't Flush That — Paper Towels, Napkins, Disinfecting Wipes, Baby Wipes, Personal Hygiene Products, should never be flushed down the toilet. These items are solid waste and must be disposed of in the trash. Even wipes that are labeled as “flushable” can completely block the sewer and cause messy, and very expensive sewer backups into homes at the homeowners' cost.
Use our Dropbox
Because our Buildings are closed to the public, documents such as Permits, Applications, and even Parking Tickets can be submitted by placing these items in our Dropbox on the south side of the building.
