City of Quincy maintenance crews, along with crews from Woodard & Curran who service the city’s water and wastewater, will continue to provide essential services to the community despite restrictions related to COVID-19.

According to a city of Quincy news release, the workers are necessary personnel for the maintenance, repair and operational tasks of the city’s public works department.

“Our crews will continue to be available for service calls during or after-hours,” Mayor Paul Worley said. “Both police department and our utility personnel will have any vacation time postponed until we can be assured the community’s needs are not affected by diminished staff.”

City facilities, such as the city hall, public works and the recreation center will remain closed, but crews will be available to respond to service needs by calling the Multi Agency Communication Center, said the news release. For non-emergencies, call 509-762-1160. For after-hours, call 509-797-1788.

“We recognize this is an anxious time for our city, and we are doing everything we can to respond to the needs of our community,” Mayor Worley said.
