[ARCHIVED] Additional City Closures & Cancellations Announced

City of Mitchell SD-Color

To help control the spread of COVID-19, Mayor Everson has decided to close City Hall & the Corn Palace to the public effective 3/17 at noon until further notice. City staff will still be available to assist the public at the numbers listed below, but this will help limit public interaction with city staff while still making those services available.    The Corn Palace Box office will remain open, but the rest of the building will be closed.  The Sanborn Public meeting will still be held; but we will also be live-streaming the meeting tonight on YouTube and Facebook and it will be posted to the City’s website tomorrow. We will take questions through the youTube site, or the Facebook live stream for those that choose to participate online.  The Airport Bid Opening Scheduled for March 18th at 1:30 pm will still take place.  The Mayor is also asking that all City boards and committees reschedule meetings that were to be held between March 17-27 to a future date.  If you have a need that cannot be addressed online, please contact us at the numbers below to determine if an accommodation can be made.
