Meridian Township Buildings Reopen with Limited Services
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - After the closing of Meridian Township buildings last month due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, most Township buildings have been reopened to the public due to cold temperatures but with limited services available.
The building’s Town Hall room is now open for residents to make tax and utility payments as well as to process permit paperwork and payments. Limited access to the Police Department and Fire Department as well as the Service Center and Harris Nature Center is also available.
“We have instituted extreme safety measures inside our building to be able to open up and serve the public,” Township Manager Frank L. Walsh said. ”The last thing we want is for our residents to stand outside in the Michigan winter waiting for public service.”
Most staff from other departments will continue to work remotely while a limited amount of staff will continue to work from the building.
Anyone entering the building will be required to wear a mask and will have to stop at the security desk so group numbers can be controlled for social distancing reasons.
