Effective March 17th, the following City facilities will be closed to the public (more information below):
City Office – 209 Hudson Ave

No City parks are being closed at this time.
Both may be re-evaluated if any positive COVID-19 cases are reported in Logan County, however. “These closures are to protect the most vulnerable members of our community,” said City Administrator Bradley Pendergast. “We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause and hope these closures are temporary.”
Currently, Oakley City Council meetings will proceed as planned, but all non-essential City board meetings likely will be canceled or rescheduled. More specific information will be released at a later time.
