Augusta Township Office Visitor Protocol – As of July 6, 2020

Effective Monday, July 6th, 2020 the Township Office (3560 County Road 26) will be open once again to the public BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

NEW PROTOCOL

Visitors will be required to call or email the staff member they wish to meet with in advance (the earlier the better) to book an appointment.  For a complete list of Township Staff with their phone numbers, email addresses and examples of areas they are responsible for, please visit our CONTACT US page.

When visitors come to the office for their appointment, they will notice a few new signs on the office doors.  It is recommended that you read them as you enter.

Only ONE person is allowed inside the lobby at one time in order to respect physical distancing.  If someone is in the lobby when you arrive, please either wait outside 6 feet away from the door so they can exit safely, or wait in your vehicle until you see them leave or enter the building.

A new intercom/door release system has been installed on the inside set of lobby doors.

Once inside the lobby, please press the intercom button ONCE for service.

You will then be asked if you answered yes to any of the questions on the sign above the intercom button (with the stop sign – see photo below).

If you answered yes, you will not be able to proceed further into the building and we ask that you leave and call to reschedule your appointment.

If you answered no, the automatic door will be released and you can enter the building and proceed to the reception desk.  It is expected that no matter where you are in the building that you respect physical distancing at all times.

You will then be asked to use the hand sanitizer provided (there is a no-touch dispenser hanging on the wall).

Then you will be asked to fill out the Visitor Log sheet.  You can use the disinfected pen provided or bring your own to use, your choice.  We are keeping a log of our visitors so that should we be notified of possible exposure to COVID-19 those who may have been infected can be notified.

You may be asked to put on a mask.  If you do not have one with you, we will provide one to you.

You will then be asked to wait in the reception area for a staff member to escort you to where your appointment will take place.

Then you will attend your appointment.  Most appointments will be held in the Council Chambers where physical distancing can be adhered or where a plexiglass divider can be used.  Note: appointments may also be held outside in the screened-in gazebo.

Once your appointment is over, you will need to stop at reception again and fill in the time you are leaving on the Visitor Log sheet.  Staff will then release the lobby door for you to exit.

A FEW OTHER NOTES

Our debit machines now have covers to allow for disinfecting after use.

If you are just dropping off an item for staff (building permit application, tax payment etc.) our drop box is still available 24-7 in the front lobby.
