Noblesville Temporarily Suspends Brush Pickup, Bio-bag Collection

March 25, 2020 - The City of Noblesville has had to temporarily suspend brush pickup and bio-bag collection due to the COVID 19 crisis, since neither is considered an essential duty. The city will notify residents when it will resume these services.

On another note, Republic Services has asked the City to suspend selling overage bags until the COVID 19 crisis is over. Republic Services will pick-up whatever is set out, but they are asking residents to refrain from setting them out for now if they can. Republic will suspend picking up bulky items (which they do as an additional charge to the resident) until the crisis is over too. These moves are all being done to protect their employees for any additional exposure.


Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen Declares Local Disaster Emergency

March 23, 2020 - Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen announced today the declaration of a local disaster emergency as part of a multi-faceted strategy to address the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The executive order will be effective starting March 25, 2020.

“Issuing a local disaster emergency in Noblesville works in conjunction with Governor Holcomb’s stay-at-home order and strengthens enforcement here in our city,” Jensen stated. “I ask you only leave your home if you work at an essential business, are getting necessary supplies or must leave for health and safety purposes.”

Jensen is asking nonessential businesses to close and for residents to stay home and avoid unnecessary travel. This preventative measure to suspend in-person contact is necessary to avoid the spread of COVID-19, particularly in relation to individuals in higher-risk segments of our population.

Jensen has directed Noblesville police and fire departments to take reasonable action to enforce this order with the understanding that this is an unprecedented time.

“We understand this is a difficult time where business owners have to make sacrifices for the greater good, but the long-term health of our community far outweighs the short term prosperity of staying open for business,” Jensen said.

Grocery stores, pharmacies and other essential businesses will continue to operate. To view a full list of essential businesses and to view Gov. Holcomb’s Directive For Hoosiers to Stay At Home, click here.

Noblesville City Court has been suspended until May 2020. If you have a hearing, please contact the City Court at (317) 776-6344 or click here. All ticket payments may be made online, mailed, or placed in the drop box. 

The City of Noblesville government remains operational to continue to provide essential service to ensure the safety and well-being of residents. However, all city buildings will close. The city would like to remind the community that all permit applications, forms, and online bill-paying can be accessed or downloaded from the city’s website at www.cityofnoblesville.org.

Jensen asked constituents to be informed on state and federal preventative recommendations and appreciates the sacrifices local residents and businesses are making for the benefit of the community. For local resources and to stay up to date on the latest Coronavirus information, click here.

Noblesville City Hall Remains Open, Some Employees Will Work Remotely

Starting Tuesday, March 17, employees who can feasibly work from home will do so. Mayor Jensen has consistently relied on public health officials’ guidance and requirements to make decisions and protocol adjustments as the situation involving COVID-19 has evolved and will continue to do so.

Public meetings like Common Council, Board of Works, and Board of Zoning Appeals will continue as scheduled. The city will be using enhanced technology options where available, in association with social distancing and other precautionary measures recommended by public health officials.

If you have business at City Hall or other city buildings, please contact the appropriate department via phone or email to determine if there is an alternative option for accomplishing the work. The city thanks its residents and guests for their patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
