The Front Royal Town Hall will close for citizens and vendors for the next month over concerns about COVID-19.

The town announced Thursday afternoon that the building would remain closed beginning today through Oct. 15.

“The Town is working to maintain operations, programs and activities while continuing to be concerned with the well-being of our employees and our citizens,” the announcement states. “Therefore, our leadership team revisited our policies and procedures that were implemented early this spring and feel it’s appropriate to implement them now.”

Front Royal officials put the following policies and operations in place for the next 30 days, which may be modified or extended:

• Town Hall will be closed for citizens and vendors. There will be a number at the main entrance individuals can call to be seen by a town employee for permit services. Permit services will continue with customers and will be conducted in the conference room to provide for six-feet social distancing.

• Utility customers will only be served via the drive through. Customers are encouraged to utilize alternate payment methods available on-line. The town will continue performing cut-offs and mail utility bills and applicable delinquent notifications.

• All council, boards and commission meetings will continue and citizens are encouraged to wear masks.
