What is the City Doing?
The Gardner Department of Public Health (GDPH) is paying close attention to the situation in Massachusetts, the country, and around the world. GDPH is closely collaborating, planning, and coordinating with the City and the Gardner Public Schools.
Staff are participating in conference calls with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Massachusetts Department of Public Heath (MDPH), and receiving regular updates from both agencies. GDPH is also sharing state and federal guidance, as it becomes available, with Gardner first responders, school officials, and other groups.
We’ve closed Municipal buildings to the public for the protection of both residents and employees. At this time, City of Gardner employees associated with these buildings will continue to report to work and departments will remain open. The City intends to maintain essential functions and services to the fullest extent possible. The public will be able to contact all departments by phone and email.
Bills can be paid online, via mail, or put in the drop box located outside the main entrance of City Hall.
