PUBLIC NOTICE

VILLAGE OF LAWRENCE

PLEASE TAKE NOTE that effective immediately the Village of Lawrence will implement Restrictive Access enforcement to the village hall and for all related village services.  All non-essential individuals/visitors, employees, committee and council members, residents and all third party vendors/entities will have restricted access to the Village hall and Village of Lawrence Department of Public Works (DPW) for the remainder of March 2020.  The purpose of this restriction is to enforce the safety for all village employees, their families and village residents due to the COVID-19 virus.

If you have an immediate matter and need to contact the Village hall, please contact the Village via telephone or email only.  If you have a payment to the Village that is due during this time, please check our website for payment online or use the Village after hours drop box.  The Village will not be taking any payments directly during this time.  If you are unable to make payment during the Restricted Access period due to the COVID-19 virus, please contact the Village for additional arrangements.

Please be advised the Village is currently and actively monitoring all protocols and restrictions related to the COVID-19 virus as presented by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), State of Michigan Health Department, and the Van Buren County Health Department and therefore, advising that all village employees and residents follow those protocols and restrictions as recommended. 

Please take further notice that the Village is providing this public notice as a proactive approach to keep all residents of the Village timely informed as to all matters concerning the COVID-19 virus.  As a result, the Village has not received any information nor has any knowledge of any person or persons who have contracted the COVID-19 virus within the Village.  As new information becomes available to the Village, we will provide updates through our social media outlets and public notice.  The Village reserves the right to amend, revise, and extend the Restricted Access period as deemed necessary.

I would like to thank each and every as we all know this is uncharted territory for all of us and I would ask that everyone please continue to show patience and tolerance with each other and the Village during this time.
