By Herald Staff

HUNTINGBURG — In response to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s most recent address to the State of Indiana concerning new COVID-19 guidelines that went into effect Sunday, Huntingburg officials have enacted more restrictive guidelines for City Hall.

There will be limited access to Huntingburg City Hall, and only essential meetings will be held. If someone has business to conduct with the city, call ahead at 812-683-2211 to see if that business can be conducted over the phone. City employees will be available to answer phone calls and emails.

Utility customers wanting to make payments in person are asked to use the drop box or drive-thru window on the east side of City Hall. Limited service for issues not related to utility payments will be conducted at drive-thru window. Other issues will be addressed by appointment.

Public meetings, like the Huntingburg Common Council or the Huntingburg Board of Public Works & Safety, will continue as scheduled. But public attendance will be limited to allow for social distancing. Masks will be worn by all those attending meetings.

Officials ask that the public follow the preventative measures in place from the Dubois County Health Department to help control and contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, including wearing a mask, practicing physical distancing, washing your hands and staying at home when sick.
