Emergency Ordinance No. 2020-07: Emergency Ordinance for COVID-19 Declared Local Emergency

May 22, 2020
For immediate release

The City will be opening several park amenities on May 23, 2020. The park playground equipment; park restrooms; portable toilets; dog and skate parks, sport courts, mini-golf, and fish cleaning building will all be opened to the public. The City’s open air shelters will be opened slowly over the next few weeks to ensure they can all be set up to safely meet the requirements of the current executive orders. Patrons should maintain social distancing in all gathering spaces and must limit groups to 10 people or less in accordance with the current executive order. The City’s rental shelters will remain closed to the public until further guidance is received on group gatherings. The City encourages everyone to follow the recommendations of the MN Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We can all stop the spread: stay 6 feet away, wash your hands, cover your cough, and stay home if you feel sick. Thanks for your cooperation and have a great holiday weekend. #CityofFairmont #COVID19

Ward Park boat landing and parking lot will be closed beginning Monday, May 11th.  The City’s contractor will be resurfacing the existing parking lot and installing a new concrete boat ramp.  This work is expected to keep the parking lot closed until mid-June.  Boaters should use alternate boat ramps during this time.  We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.  Anyone with questions can contact City Hall at 238-9461. #CityofFairmont #CityofLakes #ChainofLakes

The City is cancelling the June citywide clean-up events based on current guidance and the concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In the next few weeks, utility customers will be receiving a mailing with the clean-up coupons and additional information.  The coupons will be good for customers that want to bring their items directly to the Prairieland Solid Waste facility in Truman.  In addition these coupons will be valid for the September clean-up days.  As of this time, the September clean-up event is still scheduled, but further decisions will be made on that event later this summer.

Please note the following:  Tires are not accepted at Prairieland.  Household hazardous waste cannot be disposed of at the Prairieland facility under the current conditions.  We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.  Anyone with questions can contact City Hall at 238-9461 or Prairieland at 507-776-3232.  #CityofFairmont #CitywideCleanup
