Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen announced today the issuance of an executive order as part of a multi-faceted strategy to address the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Jensen executed Executive Order No. 20-01 effective March 20, 2020.
“Issuing an executive order allows us to communicate clear parameters and enforce restrictions on door to door solicitations as well as close city buildings including public safety buildings except in the case of emergencies in an effort to mitigate person-to-person contact,” said Jensen. “This situation is evolving every hour and we are keeping in contact with key local, state and federal officials to stay up to date on the latest recommendations. We continue to urge the public to practice social distancing, refrain from non-essential gatherings, wash their hands and be observant of symptoms.”
Public health officials are asking residents to avoid unnecessary travel, self-quarantine where appropriate, and work from home to the extent possible. This preventative measure to suspend in-person solicitation is necessary to avoid spread of COVID-19, particularly in relation to individuals in higher-risk segments of our population.
The City of Noblesville government remains open to continue to provide essential service to ensure the safety and well-being of residents. The city would like to remind the community that all permit applications, forms, and online bill-paying can be accessed or downloaded from the city’s website at www.cityofnoblesville.org.
Noblesville City Court has been suspended until May 2020. If you have a hearing, please contact the City Court at (317) 776-6344 or visit www.cityofnoblesville.org. All ticket payments may be made online, via mail, or at the drop box.
Jensen asked constituents to be informed on state and federal preventative recommendations and appreciates the sacrifices local residents and businesses are making for the benefit of the community.
