Community & Economic Development

CITY HALL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC 

In an effort to keep our employees and the community safe during the COVID-19 virus crisis, City Hall is closed to the public. Our team is dedicated to keeping our virtual doors open and we will continue to update our list of online alternatives below. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

While City Hall's door may be closed, we are hosting Virtual Open Counter events every Wednesday, 9am-10am on Zoom with members of our team and the Department of Public Works. “Open Counter” is for citizens to communicate with staff regarding permitting and development matters. For more details and the Zoom information, please see our website calendar or Facebook event.

Plans can be submitted for review and processing using the drop box located at the back entrance of City Hall. If the plans are too big, please call 920-448-3300 and someone will come down to receive them. Due to the 6’ social separation requirement, the plans will be placed outside and we will pick them up.
