(Litchfield MN-) The Litchfield City Council Monday heard another COVID-19 update from City Administrator David Czoik. The Council approved of reopening City Hall later this week with limited hours.
Czoik says they will be ready to reopen by Thursday and will be open 4 days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but the Council gave the staff the flexibility to adjust the hours at their discretion and to limit the number of people who enter at one time. Czoik also told the Council that the G.A.R. Hall may reopen in September and the staff there will submit a preparedness plan.
Czoik also spoke to the Litchfield City Council last night about a letter submitted by Golf Club Inc. President Brian Johnson saying that they are denying the City’s proposal to buy two lots on the north side of the golf course for $70,000. Czoik says the City views the restaurant at the Golf Club as a big asset to the community and understands the struggle Golf Club Inc. is having trying to find a new tenant, especially during the pandemic. Council members will be attempting to gather input from the public over the next couple of weeks about the value of the golf course and the restaurant to the community
