Our Commitment to Health & Safety
The health and safety of our community citizens is our main priority. As information about the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we are committed to taking preventative measures to reduce the risk to our community while providing the essential services you depend on.
To date, we have taken the following steps:
1. Our employees are proactively following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, including:
a. Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
b. Following hand washing protocol.
c. Avoiding touching their eyes, nose and mouth.
d. Covering a cough or sneeze.
e. Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using regular household cleaning sprays or wipes.
2. To support social distancing measures, we are requesting that you use the payment drop box, paying online via our website, or through the mail for utility bills and all other payments. You may request an absentee ballot in writing or online via myvote.wi.gov. Please make sure to include proof of identity no matter what method you are using for your request.
3. To support social distancing measures, we are suspending the use of Edwards-Alexander Park indoor park shelter until April 17, 2020. If conditions require, the suspension may have to be extended. All rental fees will be refunded if we need to cancel reservations.
As we've seen over the past few days, conditions with COVID-19 are rapidly changing. We continue to monitor updates from the World Health Organization, the CDC and the Centers for Public Health as well as state and local health agencies on a frequent basis.
Through these unprecedented times, our focus remains on providing you with safe and reliable housing and services.
Please adhere to our request.
