Members of Council,
I wanted to take an opportunity to provide you with the latest information relating to City of Pickerington operations in this dynamic and fluid period of uncertainty relating to COVID-19 and the Coronavirus. In conjunction with any decisions we make, Mayor Gray and I strongly believe we need to maintain our mission of providing fundamental local government services to those we represent and work for, yet provide the highest level of safety and security to our employees. This will require a balance of public policy and professional discretion of supervisors and other decision makers.
Human Resources has previously sent informational emails to employees on COVID-19 to provide education and awareness on this rapidly evolving respiratory illness. The City’s plans regarding COVID-19 prevention and education are outlined below.
Future communication will occur as appropriate.
Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the Pickerington Police Department is no longer offering civilian background check/fingerprinting services at this time.
