Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the City of Holts Summit has had to make many changes with the way we conduct business. Below are all of the changes that have been made as of May 4th, 2020. Changes to the list can occur quickly and often.
State of Emergency
On Tuesday, March 17, Mayor Landon Oxley made a Declaration of Emergency in the City of Holts Summit.
City Facilities (City Hall, Maintenance Sheds, etc.)
City facilities will be closed to the public until further notice. Staff will continue to work, and citizens may interact with City Hall staff through the drive-up utility window from 11 AM - 2PM, the utility drop box, through email, or by telephone at 573.896.5600. Some city services may be conducted by appointment only. Appointments will take place outside of city facilities.
Summit Veterinary Clinic will operate by appointment-only. Animal Shelter staff may still be contacted for assistance at 573-896-9301.
The Holts Summit Police Department will continue to have their restricted lobby areas open from 11 AM -2 PM, although citizens are discouraged from visiting these locations unless absolutely necessary.
In light of recent developments regarding the spread of COVID-19, the City of Holts summit has suspended all utility disconnects effective immediately. There will be no penalties assessed during the month of March. Although City Hall will be closed to the public as of March 18, there are several ways to make your utility payment including: mailing a check, using our drop box, paying online, or coming to our drive-up window. The City encourages citizens to enroll in our automatic draft program. If you enroll, the City will automatically draft your bank account for the amount of your utility bill every month on the due date. That will reduce the need for in-person visits to City Hall and ensure that you never receive a penalty. If you wish to enroll, please call City Hall and request an enrollment form or come to our drive-up window.
Parks and Recreation Department
All playgrounds, ball fields, and the disc golf course (Hibernia Station Park and Greenway Park) are closed until further notice. All Civic Center reservations during this period of time will be limited to one rental per day. Park restrooms will be closed to the public until further notice. Walking trails (behind City Hall and at Greenway Park) are OPEN and encouraged for the community to use, but please do NOT use the fitness equipment on the trails. Aalways remember to continue practicing social distancing when out in the public, six (6) feet apart from another, unless immediate family).
