City Response and Facility Closures
The City of Iowa City is working with local, county, state, and federal partners to keep our community informed about COVID-19. In addition to monitoring information from these sources, the City’s focus remains the continuity of critical operations: the police and fire departments, providing clean water, sewer services, trash and recycling collection, and transit. Changes in operating schedules, cancellations, or other alterations to City operations and facilities will be communicated as circumstances evolve.
City Hall remains closed:
- The front lobby of City Hall will remain open to allow access to the Iowa City Police Department, which will continue to operate normally.
- The public can pay City utilities, request permits, and access other City services using our easy online payment options.
