In an effort to implement social distancing practices recommended to slow the spread of COVID-19, Mayor Michael L. Hansen has amended his emergency proclamation from Tuesday, March 17 to include closing all city buildings from public access beginning on Thursday, March 19, 2020. View the amended proclamation here.
The City of Newton offices, including Public Works (Public Works, Community Development, and Community Services), City Hall, the Newton Fire Department and Newton Police Department will be closed to the public through March 31, 2020 and will be re-evaluated at that time. The Newton Public Library was already closed to the public and Newton Water Works, which is housed in City Hall, will also be closed to the public.
While these facilities are closed to walk-in traffic, City services will continue to be provided by City departments and divisions with customer service needs being either handled online, via email or by phone.
Please note the following adjustments to help us continue to serve you.
