The city team has scheduling news to share for next week, including a day of no City Hall services, and our opening of Flash Flood Water Park.
Most city buildings remain closed for June, as we analyze and understand the new state orders related to COVID-19 and workplace practices, and prepare to reopen safely.
- City offices are closed Monday, May 31 for Memorial Day. Staff will not work that day. Battle Creek Transit will not operate on Monday, resuming regular hours on Tuesday. Republic Services is closed, and their curbside services are delayed one day all of next week.
- City Hall services are unavailable on Wednesday, June 2. Consumers Energy is shutting off our main power to the building so a contractor can connect a back-up generator. Staff will not report to the building, and will not work remotely, as we will not be able to access all of our online systems.
Our 311 Information Center operates in a different building, and still will take calls that day, at 269-966-3311. While they can transfer to City Hall office numbers, customers will have to leave messages.
Services in City Hall include assessing, the clerk’s office, the treasurer and utility billing, and code and inspections. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we complete this important project.
- Flash Flood Water Park will open for the season next Saturday, June 5! We are excited to open our outdoor pool this year, for $10 general admission only. Children 2 and younger are free.
The pool will open 12 p.m.-6 p.m. seven days a week for the summer. As statewide COVID-19 restrictions are lifted as of June 1, the pool will open at full capacity, with no restrictions.
Full Blast summer hours also begin next week. Enjoy the fitness center, courts, and indoor track from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Please visit bcparks.org or call 269-966-3431 for more information on Recreation Department activities.
