THE REGULAR TOWN COUNCIL MEETING FOR APRIL 1, 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELED.
WILBUR TOWN HALL IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR:
Each day information about COVID-19 virus changes. The Town of Wilbur wants our citizens to know that we are working to reduce the spread of the disease, while providing critical services. After Governor Inslee’s “Stay at Home” proclamation on Monday March 23, 2020 Wilbur Mayor Erica Hearrean has ordered town hall to close (Public Works will be available for emergencies only). The Mayor realizes that many of the citizens of Wilbur have been financially impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns and hopes to alleviate some of those stresses by offering a couple of solutions. There will be no late fees assessed to utility bills and no water disconnects processed until further notice. All bills that are due through April will not be due until May 1.
The Mayor also wishes to encourage anyone that needs assistance to please reach out to a friend, a neighbor, a church, or to her directly. “One of Wilbur’s greatest strengths is that we are a small compassionate community and that we care deeply about our neighbors! We will come together in these trying times and we will thrive once this crisis is over!” Stay healthy, Stay Safe and Stay Home!
