Beginning March 16, the New Pekin Town Hall will be closed to walk-in customers.
According to Sherry Clem, Pekin Clerk, the projected date for resuming normal operation will be April 6.
After receiving information from Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb regarding Covid-19 and out of respect and care for our employees and the community, the town hall will be closed to walk-in customers.
“We are still operating under normal business hours Monday – Friday, 8a-4p, no through traffic will be allowed”, said Clem.
The office will be closed for three weeks as well as the park shelter house and the highway garage.
Utility bills can be dropped in the night deposit box on the door (any amount over normal payment will be credited) no change will be given.
Clem said bills can be paid by sending them by US Postage mail, paid over the phone with debit or credit card and online at townofnewpekin.com (click on the PAYGOV button).
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. But again, we must take every precaution to stop this virus,” said Clem.
