Letter From the Mayor

Dear Residents, 

During this stressful time, we at Logan City are doing all we can to adapt to rapidly changing situations.  We regularly update our website and social media with new information, including help for small businesses affected by COVID19.   Thank you for making sacrifices and being considerate of others to help our community get through this!

Infrastructure is intact
Yesterday, Logan City experienced aftershocks from the 5.7 magnitude earthquake centered in Magna, UT.  All city infrastructure is functioning normally with no damage.

We are open for business, but via phone and online
Logan City is conducting business, but at the direction of federal and state officials to reduce the spread of Covid19, and in order to protect the health of our employees, we have many employees working from home and all city buildings are open by appointment only.  The website lists specific contact information, and there is signage at each building.  PLEASE conduct business via phone and online wherever possible: (435) 716-9000. We are here to help!

We are trying to set a good example, and encourage other businesses to do the same
We all need to get work done, so all city department heads are working to ensure social distancing, (which includes some employees working from home, rolling schedules, coming to the office only as needed, etc.)  We encourage everyone to be diligent at using the phone, having conference calls instead of face to face meetings, keeping distances of six feet, and practicing extra cautious handwashing and hygiene. For our crews that work outdoors in small teams (usually four or less) that situation seems acceptable to us.  If people have any symptoms of fever, cough, etc. PLEASE STAY HOME!  Be especially mindful of employees who may be high risk and work with them individually.

Support Small Businesses Where Possible
The closures have hit everyone hard, but particularly small, local businesses.  Yesterday the Governor closed all restaurants to take-out and pick up only. Be creative about new ways of doing business to support our economy. 

Use Parks and Trails, just not in big Groups
Enjoy our trails and parks where you can spread out! It’s great to get outside, walk, run and ride bikes.  Be cautious about congregating at places like playgrounds. We’ve closed the skate park, for that reason, but tennis and pickleball courts are open! Practice social distancing and carry hand sanitizer. 

THE GOAL IS TO “FLATTEN THE CURVE” SO WE DON’T OVERWHELM THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.   WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!
