In a press release on Tuesday, the City government of Kewanee showed support for continuing the Governor and the President’s Stay at Home Order until the end of April. City Manager Gary Bradley in the release confirmed that essential City services such as Police and Fire protection, Sewers, Water, and Trash pick up will continue during this time.
“We strongly encourage everyone to do their part to help prevent the virus from spreading widely though the community when it arrives, if it isn’t here already” City Manager Gary Bradley stated, adding “Mayor Moore and the City Council have supported our efforts to ensure the safety of our residents, are concerned immensely about the economic impact of the Pandemic on our business community, and have empowered our staff to focus our efforts on the projects and programs that matter the most in this uniquely challenging time.”
The new Stay at Home Order runs through the end of April. Social distancing guidelines remain in place, keep six feet of distance. The statement ends with the message: “maintain a sense of faith that we can get through this together (but intentionally apart).”
