Paducah City Facilities Closed to the Public
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - The City of Paducah is making adjustments to their numerous facilities in their effort to implement social distancing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

All city offices will be closed to the public until May 3. This will include City Hall, the front desk at the Paducah Police Department, fire stations, the Parks & Recreation Department office, and the compost facility. City services will be continuing, however those that need to contact the city should do so by phone, email, or online.

City Manager Jim Arndt shared his thoughts on the change.

"It’s critical for everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We are implementing social distancing standards throughout city government." 

The Public Works Department will also make changes to their garbage collection procedures in an effort to protect their employees. Beginning Monday, all garbage will need to be contained in the rollout container, as staff will not be touching trash bags or any items left beside the rollout container. Brush and bulk items such as couches and chairs will still be collected. For commercial customers, all garbage will need to be contained in a dumpster.

City officials remind the public that their phone number is 270-444-8800, and during normal business hours, (Monday through Friday, 8 am until 4:30 pm), they will have Customer Service taking calls, and sending callers to the appropriate departments.

Anyone needing to drop off a payment to their Finance Department will need to use the City Hall drop-box, which is located near the front door of the building on the 5th Street side.
