City of Scandia, MN

On December 21, 2021, the City Council approved a modified emergency declaration issued by Mayor Christine Maefsky, in accordance with Minnesota Statute Sections 12.29 and 13D.021, to temporarily conduct all city meetings remotely via Zoom interactive television or telephone due to recent increases in Covid-19 viral transmission rates and public health concerns related to the potential risks of the Omicron variant of virus.  

The public may continue to attend any City meetings in person, but members of the City Council, and its Commissions and Committees will participate remotely via Zoom for the duration of this temporary preventive measure.  The large hall at the Community Center will remain open at meeting times so that the public may view and interact in public meetings.  In person attendees are strongly encouraged to observe social distancing guidelines and to wear masks. 

 When possible, the City strongly encourages the public to also participate remotely via Zoom with a computer or phone or to observe the meeting via the City’s Boxcast Channel online.  Instructions on joining meetings virtually or by phone are on all meeting agendas. 

 Given the rapidly changing nature of current public health conditions, the City will continue to reassess its policies in response to this public health emergency.  Updates are available on the City’s website, by contacting City Hall at 651-433-2274, or by viewing the official notice board at the by the Scandia Community Center main entrance.
