Swan Hill Rural City Council’s Splatt Street offices will re-open to the public from 8.30am tomorrow (Wednesday, 3 June).
Council Chief Executive Officer John McLinden said recent easing of coronavirus restrictions meant the Splatt Street Business Centre could now re-open its doors to the community.
“The Splatt Street offices will now be open to the community during normal business hours, 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday,” Mr McLinden said.
“Additional measures are in place to help stop the potential spread of coronavirus. This includes a hand sanitiser station, protective screens at our customer service points, floor indicators to maintain social distancing protocols and signage.
“To further help stop the potential risk of coronavirus to staff and the community, Council would prefer contactless payment,” Mr McLinden added.
“There will also be a limit of 12 people in the reception foyer at a time, and the office site will also be cleaned regularly.”
Mr McLinden asked customers to ensure they did not attend the Splatt Street office if they were unwell.
“If you feel ill please don’t come into Council. Instead you can contact us over the phone or email, or through Council’s website,” he said.
“Most importantly, we ask our community to please respect our staff, including following social distancing measures, making use of the hand sanitiser station and being understanding if there is a wait to see a staff member.”
