City of Dauphin Starts Opening Their Doors
City-run facilities had their doors closed to the general public since the middle of March 2020, but employees have kept working and providing municipal services to the public. With the Provincial government’s recent announcement of the gradual re-opening of businesses and services in Manitoba, the City of Dauphin has reviewed its operations and will be providing the public some increased access to its facilities.
As of May 6, City Hall will once again be open to the public for payments, and they ask that everyone follow the guidelines outlined at the north entrance to provide for physical distancing protocol. Please note that you may continue to make payments via the drop box, mail, or your financial institution. All other inquiries should be made via phone (204-622-3200) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and appointments may be scheduled with the appropriate personnel if necessary.
While the Fire Hall will also open, the Shop and Water Treatment Plant will remain closed to the general public.
“The safety of the public and staff is our top priority. We are proud of our community and how we’ve managed to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19. Please continue to follow the Province’s rules for physical distancing,” stresses Mayor Allen Dowhan.
The City thanks the public for their patience during the last several weeks and looks forward to continuing to provide service to their ratepayers as they gradually reopen and maintain public and staff safety measures.
