Posted on Thursday September 03, 2020

As of Tuesday, September 8, 2020, the Municipality of Leamington will be offering access to select municipal services by appointment only at the Leamington Municipal Building located at 111 Erie Street North, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30AM and 4:30PM. In anticipation of offering these services, the Municipality has been putting plans in place to welcome the public safely back into municipal facilities.

Available In-Person Services

Customers will have access to the following services in person, by appointment only, during normal business hours:

  • Lottery and liquor licensing
  • Business licensing
  • Marriage licences
  • Civil marriage ceremonies
  • Interment services

Safety Precautions in Place

Individuals who have made an appointment to access services in person will see enhanced health and safety precautions, including glass barriers at customer service counters, hand hygiene stations, and enhanced cleaning. Visitors will be subject to COVID-19 pre-screening questions and will be required to wear a mask in accordance with the Municipality’s Mandatory Mask By-law when visiting the building.

Payment

The Municipality is no longer accepting cash payments. Any payments that are required in relation to an appointment will be completed at the time of the appointment.

Virtual Services

Municipal facilities that were closed in March due to COVID-19 have been offering virtual services, and will continue to do so, as technology becomes a bigger part of our new normal. We continue to encourage all residents to use our website to access municipal information and to seek alternative methods to connect with municipal staff, such as by email, telephone at 519-326-5761, or through an online service request at leamington.ca/reportanissue

“We are pleased to be able to safely reopen our Municipal Building by appointment to serve the needs of our residents during these difficult times,” said Mayor Hilda MacDonald. “We will continue expanding our service delivery options virtually and in-person, and encourage residents to continue to use our online services as much as possible.”

“The Municipality has been providing an increasing number of virtual services to residents including electronic payments so the need to physically visit the town hall is significantly reduced,” said Peter Neufeld, Chief Administrative Officer. “The pandemic has reconfirmed our strategic direction to transform and improve the services we deliver to our residents safely and efficiently through innovation and technology.”
