A personal message from the Mayor.
“Good morning Diamond City and Lead Hill citizens. Just a reminder that schools have been closed and the governments asking for everyone to stay in. We have closed the Community Center and our meetings have been canceled until the first of the month then we will reevaluate. I’m asking all the citizens of Diamond City to please stay inside keep your kids inside for the next 14 days. Let’s do our part and not spread this virus. Even though you don’t have it there could be a carrier out there or you could be a carrier so let’s just think of others and stay inside. If you are in need of something please feel free to call City Hall and we will do our best to try to get it to you or find someone that can help you. Remember we all have to work together. Have a great day and remember it takes us all to stop this virus so please stay inside and keep your kids with you. Play a game, laugh, watch TV but most importantly be safe. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.”
