Letter from Mayor Sindelar
The past few weeks a global pandemic has brought us many challenges and unknowns. At Town Hall we have had to adjust our way of conducting business and at home we are learning to adjust our normal work, school and play activities. With all these changes, I’m sure many are feeling concerned and overwhelmed. I want to affirm my commitment to you – the community – that the Town will continue to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. And I have no doubt, that Firestone will do what we do best – support one another and come together as a community during times of need. If you notice a group or individual that is going above and beyond to help make a positive impact on our citizens during this time and would like to nominate them for the Mayor’s Award, please email me their names and tell me about the good work they are carrying out in our community.
Currently, Town Hall, along with the Police Department and Public Works facilities are closed to the public. The Town is continuing to provide essential services to the community, including public safety, water utilities and emergency response services. Even though the buildings are closed, staff is committed to providing uninterrupted services to the community. Many employees are working remotely and are able to utilize technology to continue operating.
We also know that our local businesses are already feeling the impacts of COVID-19. I challenge our community to support these businesses by taking advantage of gift card purchases, online ordering, delivery services, drive-thru, curb-side pick-ups and carryout options. Additionally, if you own a business I encourage you to visit www.firestoneco.gov/COVID19_Biz. We have compiled a variety of resources for you related specifically with today's current conditions. As more resources become available this page will be updated.
Lastly, we know there is an abundance of information being shared. All announcements and notifications that the Town has shared or received, are listed at www.firestoneco.gov/COVID19. We will continue to keep the community informed and post online and on social media. I encourage you to stay connected with us, and reach-out if you have any concerns.
Thank you for your continued support. It is an honor to be your Mayor.
