On Tuesday, May 26, the Town of Apple Valley will reopen Town Hall and Development Services Building to once again serve our residents and customers in person.

In accordance with the state’s advancement into Stage 2 of the state’s reopening plan, office workplaces can reopen with modifications.

Town Hall will reopen for normal business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and every other Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Town Hall is closed on May 29.

The Development Services Building, which includes Planning, Engineering, and Building and Safety, will reopen for walk-ins 9 a.m. to noon, Monday-Thursday and every other Friday. Departments in DSB will be available each afternoon by appointment only. DSB is closed on May 29. At this time, the community is encouraged to call Town Hall prior to arrival to best ensure services are open.

Like many other local places of business, the Town will continue to practice enhanced safety modifications, including requiring staff and guests to wear face coverings when entering the building and when conversing with others. Staff and guests will also be required to conduct a brief health screening and a no-contact temperature check. Following CDC guidelines, the Town will deny entry to anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher.

“I’m grateful to our Town staff for continuing to provide quality service to our residents and customers via phone and online and I’m pleased that we can resume in-person customer service again,” said Mayor Scott Nassif. “Thank you to our community for your patience and understanding during this time, and moving forward, as physical distancing modifications will be the new way of doing business for the foreseeable future.”

Based on the state health order,  the Town will continue to host online public meetings only for Town Council and Commission meetings. The next online meeting is May 26 at 4 p.m for a special budget workshop and later at 6:30 p.m. for the regularly scheduled Town Council meeting. To view these meetings visit www.applevalley.tv.

Heightened Hygiene Practices

As is typical during any flu season, public health officials recommend individuals take a number of steps to protect both their health and the health of those around them, which include:

  • Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.  
  • Avoid close contact with individuals who are sick.
  • N95 masks are NOT recommended outside of a healthcare setting. Surgical masks can be worn by sick individuals to reduce their likelihood of spreading germs.
  • If someone becomes sick with a respiratory symptoms like fever and cough, they should stay away from work, school and other people to avoid spreading the illness and seek treatment from their healthcare provider.

The Town of Apple Valley will continue to monitor the situation and immediately inform the community if any specific precautions or guidance are provided by either the Department of Public Health or the Office of Emergency Services.
