On April 30, Governor Kelly unveiled AD ASTRA: A PLAN TO REOPEN KANSAS to begin the phased reopening of our state. On May 11, Edgerton City Hall will reopen to the public following the lift of the Johnson County Stay at Home Order.
During Phase I of the Governor’s Plan, individuals are strongly encouraged to wash your hands frequently, continue wear masks in public settings and maintain 6 foot social distance.
Like you, we want to protect our most vulnerable citizens, so the City is installing some safeguards to limit the spread of any virus. You may notice some of these changes in City Hall, including a new plexiglass panel over the front window and tape markers on the floor to physically distance anyone waiting in line. The City regularly sanitizes and cleans all common areas. We will be especially diligent about wiping down surfaces used by the public.
The Ad Astra Plan encourages that if you are ill or have in-person contact with anyone suffering from COVID-19, stay home and conduct any business over the phone or online. Residents wishing to remain home are encouraged to continue paying their utility bill by calling City Hall, using the overnight dropbox, calling the PSN toll free number or paying online via the city’s website.
Edgerton City Council will meet virtually again on May 14 before resuming normal in-person meetings on May 28. Council members will participate virtually on May 14, while members of the public may attend with seating set up to physically distance. If you wish to comment on any agenda item, but do not feel comfortable attending, you can call City Hall or email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org before noon on the day of the meeting. Any comments received will be shared with the Governing Body.
We will continue to update you as the State of Kansas and Johnson County move through the phases of reopening. Watch this page for details on when other city facilities such as playgrounds and sports fields will reopen. We are also working to reschedule the annual low-cost animal vaccination clinic and the summer kick-off block party, but dates have not been set yet.
The City of Edgerton thanks you for your continued patience and support for your friends and neighbors during these unprecedented times. We look forward to REUNITING EDGERTON!
