Caldwell city buildings will close beginning September 27 due to the activation of Crisis Standards of Care and the surge in COVID-19 cases.

The closures will be reevaluated on November 1 or once cases decrease, according to a news release from the city.

The City buildings that will close are:

  • City Hall
  • Caldwell Airport
  • Caldwell Public Library
  • Caldwell Fire Department
  • Caldwell Event Center offices
  • Parks and Rec offices
  • Planning and Zoning
  • Building
  • Engineering
  • Water
  • Waste Water Treatment
  • Cemetery
  • Street Department offices

City officials say service departments will stay fully staffed and functional despite the closures and residents can reach department officials via phone or email. Public hearings planned for October will be postponed until November.

"We will continue to provide both virtual and in-person attendance options for City Council meetings, but social distancing protocols will be reestablished for in-person seating," according to the release. "Special reports and presentations will be postponed until future dates, and council agendas will be limited to the fundamental business of the City."
