There was a video post today by an employee of the Department of Public Safety. The post implied the Officer was speaking on behalf of the DPS. These are not the views of DPS or myself. I want to personally apologize to Sheriff Hefner and every employee at the Sheriffs Office for this post and insure them it was in no way authorized by any official of the City. I have spoken with Sheriff Hefner personally and ensured that Bloomfield DPS and the Sheriff's Office will continue to work together to protect our citizens. I am grateful for the working relationship our agencies have built over the last several years and look forward to the continued support we can provide each other.

SUBJECT: Covid-19 Virus Update
DATE: March 27, 2020

Due to receiving additional knowledge about Covid-19 and how it can spread, along with crowds more than ten gathering in our city park I will be closing down the entire city park effective immediately until further notice. This move is something I did not want to make but have been forced to do so.

Please continue to view our Social Media sites as I feel more notices as well as mandates will be forthcoming from a National, State, County and City level in coming days.

As of now our Transit Service will continue, however, this could change quickly but we want to try and continue to provide this needed service to our citizens that have no other way to get to the store, pharmacy etc.

These very tough decisions are made in order to protect our city staff and our citizens.

The Bloomfield Department of Public Safety will be following modified protocols in regards to our calls for service. Our Police Officers will continue to respond to “in progress” calls for service while all non-emergency and routine business calls will be handled over the telephone. These calls will still be handled as usual. Our lobby will remain locked during this time to protect our clerical staff.
Our Fire personnel will continue responding to all emergency calls for service however, all non emergency calls for service will be evaluated on a case by case basis and a determination will be made how to handle these.

We will continue to function at our same standard of service. Citizens may notice an increase in units patrolling our city. These modified protocols are in place to protect our employees so that they may continue to serve this community without interruption while also diminishing the spread of COVID-19 throughout the community.

I greatly appreciate your cooperation. We are actively monitoring this situation and continue to communicate with the Stoddard County Public Health Department and CDC. We remain dedicated to serve and protect this community.

DATE: March 19, 2020

I want to let you know what measures the city council and I are taking in response the Covid-19 crisis. Because your health and safety are our number one concern we are doing the following to ensure safety of everyone in this constantly changing environment.

We are closely following guidelines from CDC and other health agencies as well as state and federal government.

Our department heads, council members and I are sitting in on various webinars and conference calls on how to deal with the virus.

At this time we have no plans to issue a State of Emergency or mandates relating to operating hours or closures for our community. We wish to leave those decisions up to the businesses, school, organizations and churches at this time.

Our city departments are open and providing services to our residents. I have reached out to Republic Services and as of now there is no change in scheduled trash pickup however they did stress they will only pick up what is in the container(s). We ask that you don’t come inside city hall or any of our city facilities if you are experiencing symptoms associated with the virus. There is a drop box at city hall for water/sewer payments and one at the library for books. You can also make your payment by calling City Hall at: 573-568-3464.

As Mayor I pledge to keep everyone informed via our Social Media Outlets as the Covid-19 guidelines continue to evolve.

Finally, on a personal note, I have never experienced anything like this before and am sure you have not either. However, by working together, we will get through it.

STAY SAFE!!!!
