The City of Lanark, in response to both the Federal and State emergency declarations and in following a set of best-practices for such an event, has made the following changes:

Effective immediately, the Lanark City Hall, the Lanark Public Library, the Heritage Center and the Police Department Offices are closed to the public. City Hall will be staffed during normal business hours, and will be available by phone. Water bills may be paid online on this website, or you may pay by phone with the City Hall staff. Maintenance Crew services will continue as normal, but without public access to the building.

The Police Department will respond to certain types of calls by telephone only. An officer will contact you and get the required information for a report and investigation as appropriate. Please understand this helps protect not only the officer, but you the caller and your household as well. As first responders, the officers are routinely exposed to potential illnesses and disease, and we feel limiting their contact at your residence is a logical safeguard for all involved, while still providing you with the servicesĀ  you need. In any case of emergency, an officer will be coming to your aid immediately.

We ask for your cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented event, and look forward to resuming normal operations as soon as conditions and directives from health experts allows.
