All borough facilities are currently closed to the public while retrofits, such as directional signage and sneeze guards are being installed to ensure safe interaction with the public. The borough's "Phased Reopening Plan" starts June 1, 2020 with public hours of operation scheduled from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Visitors will be asked to wear a face mask or cloth covering before entering any borough facility, to use hand sanitizer and to practice physical distancing. Please adhere to directional signage as there will be limited access throughout the buildings.
Meanwhile, employees continue to provide general services to the public using online payment options and scheduling individual appointments. Please consider using online payment options instead of coming into the Borough Administrative Building. You can find contact information and online service options at www.kpb.us or call 907-262-4441 (local) 800-478-4441 (toll free).
Approximately 80% of all borough employees continue to report to their physical work location, practicing the recommended guidance to ensure workplace safety. Employees that can telework from home continue to do so.
The Central Peninsula Landfill and transfer sites remain open to the public, and most transfer sites are now open on Sundays until October 1st. The Dispatch Center, Office of Emergency Management and all Fire/EMS continue to maintain operations; however, the public is not allowed to enter these facilities. First responders are following the current CDC guidance specific to personal protective equipment during call outs.
More details will be provided at www.kpboem.com and the borough's Facebook page @Kenai.Peninsula.Borough as reopening expands to specific departments and service areas. Thank you for your patience.
