It was announced yesterday that the elevator at Kirksville City Hall is out of service. The City was informed by the repair company that the elevator is not able to be repaired, and will require the installation of a new elevator system. This will leave the Kirksville City Hall building without its elevator system for an undetermined amount of time.
City staff is taking immediate action to start the process of elevator replacement, and will continue to take every possible action to ensure the process goes as quickly as possible.
In the meantime, City staff is prepared to provide curbside service to citizens requiring ADA accessibility. Once parked outside, citizens who need assistance can call 660.627.1225 and the City Administration office will send the appropriate department staff to assist.
Additionally, the City of Kirksville will be moving all public meetings, including City Council meetings, Study Session, and Citizen Advisory Commission meetings to the Economic Development Alliance Building, 315 S. Franklin St. to ensure accessibility for all citizens. Once the temporary ADA entrance is constructed, these meetings will be moved back to City Hall and held in the Council Chambers on the first floor.
