NEW DECADE!
TO:                   ALL OF MONTEREY
FROM:        MAYOR BILL WIGGINS
DATE:                MARCH 19, 2020
SUBJECT:        COVID-19        


The COVID-19 pandemic is broadening all around and could come our way.  
The entire nation is on a war footing to fight this viral menace and Monterey is
stepping up with the following measures, effective Monday, March 23rd, to
help blunt its effect on our community and do our part in flattening the curve
and checking its growth.  

1.        Business at Monterey City Hall will be done either on-line, telephone,
fax, drive-through window or the after-hours deposit.  The lobby will be closed
to pedestrian traffic.

2.        The Depot Museum will be closed to the public but the Cultural
Administrator, Rafferty Cleary, and the docent-historian-tour guide, Dale
Welch, will be at their desks inside.

3.        The Town sponsored Easter Egg Hunt set for Saturday, April 4th, is
postponed.

These management tools will be in place for an indefinite period.  The U.S.
Surgeon General has declared that the next two weeks are critical.  Hopefully,
more stringent steps will not be necessary.  Monterey will evaluate its strategy
based on information from public health professionals and the Centers for
Disease Control.

Citizens finding themselves in distress and facing hardship as a result of the
pandemic should get in touch with the Monterey Police Department or First
Responders and members of the Monterey Fire Department.  These folks are
conditioned and highly skilled in helping cope with times such as these.  
Deanna Hornby, Pastor of Monterey United Methodist Church, has
announced that the resources of the congregation stand ready on demand.

The Town of Monterey is also waiving cut-offs and forgiving penalties for
water customers who are struggling because of job loss caused by COVID-19
or the small business owner who experiences steep declines in revenue
caused by COVID-19.

We are all soldiers in this effort.  Please, follow CDC guidelines and public
health instructions as we all assume personal responsibility and get through
this difficult time.
