(La Porte, IN) - The doors of La Porte City Hall closed for more than a year because of coronavirus will open again to the public. Beginning June 1, Mayor Tom Dermody said people will be allowed to enter as long as they wear a mask. The building has been closed to the public since March of 2020 when the pandemic was in its early stages.
Dermody said he feels comfortable allowing the public to enter the building now that people are being vaccinated. "Though we continued to serve the people of La Porte without interruption during the pandemic, we are eager take a step closer to normalcy and get to have some face time with our citizens," he said.
Dermody said there are virtual options still available for members of the public who do not feel comfortable yet doing business inside City Hall. The options include the drive through service lane on the east side of City Hall and livestreamed meetings.
