PITTSBURG, KS – In an abundance of public caution, the City of Pittsburg is taking several proactive steps to combat the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including closing some public facilities and cancelling or postponing public events. City officials plan to reevaluate the situation daily and make adjustments as needed.
Public meetings will be postponed for 30 days, with the exception of the March 23 Planning Commission/Board of Zoning Appeals meeting, and the March 24 City Commission meeting.
City commissioners may participate remotely by conference call. We encourage citizens to watch commission meetings using one of the following public access channels:
City Hall operations will remain open at this time. However, we are urging utility customers, building contractors and residents to refrain from visiting city offices in-person unless absolutely necessary. The City of Pittsburg provides many services over the phone and online, and we encourage people to use these convenient resources to protect themselves, their families and others.
Street maintenance operations: All scheduled street projects will continue as weather allows.
Utility shutoffs: Water utility shutoffs will be suspended for one month/payment cycle. Customers must still pay for the water services used during this period but they will not lose water service.
Starting new water utility services: The City is waiving the requirement that customers come to City Hall in person to create a new account or start new water service. Call (620) 231-4100 to speak to a Customer Service Representative.
Business licenses can be obtained online at pittks.org. For assistance, call Customer Service at (620) 231-4100.
