City of Sapulpa cancels public meeting after positive test for COVID-19

From Sapulpa City Manager Joan Riley:

City Manager Joan Riley

The health and safety of our staff and community are of utmost importance. We currently have multiple employees quarantined due to potential exposure to COVID:19 from close contact with an employee at City Hall with a confirmed case of the virus. To ensure that we reduce the risk of future spread, it is imperative that in-person contact at City Hall be limited immediately.  After much thought and consideration of potential options, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for the general well-being of the public and other Council members, the City Council meeting scheduled for August 3, 2020 has been canceled.  All business items that were to be considered at the August 3 meeting will be on the agenda for the next regular Council meeting on Monday, August 17, 2020.  

In the meantime, we are undergoing a daily deep cleaning of the City Hall offices and ramping up additional preventative measures to keep our employees and the public as safe as possible. Be assured that you will still have protection from our police officers and firefighters, clean tap water, regular trash and recycling pickup, and the other services that keep our city moving, and we encourage residents who can do their business with us online, or by email, phone, or fax to do so during these difficult times.  We will continue to update you regularly via social media, so please check the City webpage regularly and continue to follow us on Facebook for updates.

Joan Riley, City Manager
