BREAKING: Mayor extends council's city building closure rule through Tuesday

It appears the status of Windom city offices and the liquor store will remain the same at least through Tuesday.

Windom Mayor Dominic Jones announced this morning that he has extended through Tuesday a previous council action calling for city buildings to be closed to the public due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The lone exception to that closure is River Bend Liquor, which continues to operate under its normal hours.

The council's city building decision was originally set to expire Friday. Jones said the council will revisit the situation during a special meeting sometime Tuesday (watch windomnews.com for updates on this meeting time and agenda).

Here is a copy of Jones' official statement:

"The Governor has issued a Stay Home Order (Executive Order 20-20) until April 10, 2020.

"Under this Executive Order, and the State of Emergency that was declared last week as approved by the City Council, I am as Mayor extending the current status quo of operations at City facilities through March 31st.

"City Hall, Arena, Library and Community Center will remain being closed to the public, but staffed. The River Bend Liquor Store operations remain open under the conditions already imposed. All other essential employees will remain at work.

"At a Special City Council meeting on March 31st the City Council can take additional action as it sees fit to extend the restrictions on public access, amend the existing practices or consider other options."
