The Town of Monument has declared a formal local disaster emergency in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak affecting communities across the country. Monument is one of many communities across the state of Colorado that has taken this type of action in recent days.
This declaration will allow the Town of Monument to more effectively respond to the current health situation, seek and utilize mutual aid, potentially obtain reimbursement, and ensure that the Town’s public health professionals have all necessary tools at their disposal to keep the community safe.
In addition to the local disaster emergency declaration, the Town has also announced that Monument Town Hall is closed to the general public until further notice, effective Wednesday, March 18.
While these facilities will be temporarily closed to the public, Town services will continue as normal. Individuals will still be able to reach the Town of Monument during regular business hours via telephone at 719.481.2954 or a list of staff contacts is on our website http://townofmonument.org/142/Contact.
