CAMP VERDE — From March 23 through April 6, the Town of Camp Verde will limit services to the public due to concerns over the coronavirus.

Wednesday, Mayor Charlie German issued an emergency proclamation that states the town’s municipal departments will continue to accommodate Camp Verde’s needs through virtual means and limited in-person access.

Essential services will not be interrupted, as emergency services and public works will continue to serve the public, according to the town’s March 19 news release. “Our goal is to minimize the impact on our residents while safeguarding them and our staff.”

Town Staff is considering live streaming of council and other municipal board meetings, Town Manager Russ Martin said Thursday. Meetings will continue as scheduled but “will address only essential matters,” the town stated.
