Burnsville's Response to COVID-19

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

As news of COVID-19 progresses rapidly across the country and in Minnesota, City of Burnsville has been working collaboratively to monitor the quickly changing situation. The City places a high value on providing quality service to the public, but as the pandemic continues we have decided to make operational changes.

We will continue to update this page as additional information becomes available about how the City of Burnsville is working with our local partners and employees to protect the health of our community.

Please browse our website if you have questions -- much of the information the public needs about City services can be found online. You can also contact City staff directly. View our staff directory for more information. Staff will continue working to provide public service as quickly and effectively as possible via phone and email.

Temporary City Facility Closures & Event Cancellations

In order to comply with the most recent recommendations about social distancing we have decided to temporarily close all City facilities to the public and cancel or reschedule events through June 30. City staff will continue to evaluate the situation and adjust closures as necessary. Facility closures include:

  • Maintenance Facility
  • Burnsville Fire Stations #1 and #2
  • Burnsville Police Station
  • Burnsville Ice Center
  • Burnsville Community Television

City Hall is Now Open to the Public

Here are a few things to keep in mind before your next trip to City Hall:

  •  While the doors are open for walk-ins, please make an appointment to meet with staff whenever possible so we can ensure someone will be around to meet you
  • Our employees are still available via email and phone for those who wish to continue to communicate with us through those means
  • “Hybrid” public meetings will allow Council/Commission members, staff and the public to be present at City Hall or join a meeting remotely.
