GREENFIELD — Mayor Roxann Wedegartner announced on Friday plans for a limited reopening of city offices.

Within City Hall, the Clerk’s Office, City Council Office and the Treasurer/Collector’s Office will be open to the public during these times, but with strict guidelines for visitors and employees.

Visitors will be asked to sign in at the side door and are required to practice social distancing and wear face coverings when inside the building. According to the release, if City Hall reaches capacity, visitors will be asked to wait outside where a tent will be set up.

The Mayor’s Office, Licensing Department, Assessor’s Office and Retirement Office remain open by appointment only.
