Local Response Measures

The Montrose city manager has implemented a Declaration of Local Disaster Emergency. This is a proactive measure to slow the potential spread, impacts, and damage of COVID-19 and will assist the city in securing regional, state, and federal resources, if necessary. 

Essential city services including water, sewer, trash/recycling, and law enforcement will continue. 

City offices are closed to the public. Please see the listing below for specific contact and operational information for each department.

To avoid the interruption of best hygiene practices like hand washing, the city is suspending water utility shutoffs for delinquent customers while working with them to make future payment arrangements. 

The City of Montrose is continuing to closely monitor direction from Montrose County Public Health and state and federal agencies and will follow their guidance for the health and safety of the Montrose community and city staff.
