TAYLOR — The city plans to reopen City Hall to the public Aug. 10. New guidelines have been put in place for the health of visitors, as well as employees, as suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state of Michigan and Wayne County Health Department.
All visitors should wash or sanitize their hands before entering and upon exiting the building for health reasons. Anyone who is ill, should not visit City Hall.
The following guidelines also will be in place:
• There will be capacity restrictions, and you may be asked to wait outside while practicing social distancing.
• Regular business hours will be 9 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The noon break allows for sanitizing common areas.
• Visitor traffic only will be allowed through the Goddard Road (north) entrance. Visitors will enter and exit there.
• No other doors or entrances – including the Pine Street doors – will be open to the general public during normal hours.
• Visitors must wear a mask.
• Hand sanitation stations will be available throughout the building.
• Prior to admittance, visitors must activate the intercom outside the front door, and briefly state the purpose of their visit.
• Visitors may be advised to use the various drop boxes outside the building instead of entering the building.
• Visitors will be required to sign in – name, phone number, address and purpose of the visit – for tracing purposes, should they arise.
• No admittance will be allowed to the second floor of the building without an appointment.
• The Veterans Museum remains closed.
People can save themselves a trip to City Hall, in many cases, by calling, 734-287-6550; going to the website, www.cityoftaylor.com; or using the free iCare Taylor app. Drop boxes are available on Pine Street, west of City Hall.
