A Message from Mayor Tim Griffin on COVID-19
Dear Kirkwood Residents,
I’m writing to let you know that the City of Kirkwood is here for our community, and we are working tirelessly to confront the challenges and uncertainty of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.
As always, the safety and well-being of the Kirkwood community is our top priority, and as such, we have taken steps to ensure the continuation of essential services such as Police, Fire, Power, Water and Sanitation services. Some non-essential operations have been reduced, and City employees that are able to work from home have been asked to do so, in order to reduce the number of personnel working in our facilities. Several departments such as, Parks & Recreation, Sanitation, Water and Fleet Services, are working in shifts that do not overlap.
Our City’s first responders and other personnel are acting quickly, effectively, and with great courage to do everything possible to make sure our community is safe and healthy. Police and Fire personnel are collaborating closely with county and state emergency management officials, and our neighboring cities. This work is a high priority for the City and will continue for as long as needed for our continued safety.
Regular updates about the City’s response are available on our website at kirkwoodmo.org. Additionally, please refer to the St. Louis County Health Department and Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services for the most current information about the COVID-19 outbreak.
In this time of uncertainty, it is important that we remember our community’s values of being safe, inclusive, and welcoming.
We are all in this together, and we all have a role to play. The City of Kirkwood is here to support you throughout this difficult time and will be doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our community and the continuation of your City services.
Mayor Tim Griffin
