Staffing issues related to COVID-19 have caused a temporary closure in the City of Henderson, Kentucky.

City officials say the collections lobby in the Henderson Municipal Center is temporarily closed due to staffing issues related to COVID-19 exposures.

The collections lobby would typically be used by residents looking to pay utility bills and make other payments.

Customers who would typically use the service are now being asked to use the drive-through windows of the building located at 222 First St. until the lobby can be reopened, or use another method of payment like the dropbox in the parking lot of The Depot Welcome Center on Water Street.

To conduct business with other offices in the Henderson Municipal Center (such as the business licensing office or administrative offices), visitors are being asked to use the First Street entrance and ask the receptionist to contact the office they need.

Because of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in the area, the City of Henderson is requiring all employees, customers, and visitors to wear face masks while inside all city-owned facilities.

The city didn't say exactly how long the closure of the collections lobby would last.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
