On March 18, 2020, Mayor Andrew Ginther declared a State of Emergency in the City of Columbus. While basic city services will continue, some services will be limited during the public health emergency. We ask your patience during this time. Thank you.

Working remotely may cause a delay in response to other programs, but we will work diligently to respond as quickly as possible.
