Prairie Village – On Thursday, Prairie Village Mayor Eric Mikkelson issued a supplemental declaration of a State of Local Emergency to reflect the Emergency Health Order issued by the Local Health Officer of Johnson County.
The declaration removes faith-based activities, weddings and funerals as exceptions from a prohibition on gatherings of more than 10 people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Until further notice, Republic Services will not be picking up small bulky items. Drivers will only collect trash and recyclables that fit inside bins.
At this time, there are no impacts to yard waste in Prairie Village. However, if that changes we will let you know as soon as we do.
As a reminder, you can find a list of City services impacted by COVID-19 at www.pvkansas.com/COVID19
Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is asking all Johnson County residents to complete a short survey in order to understand how many people in Johnson County have or do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The survey is available April 7 through April 10 at 10 a.m. This short survey asks about your symptoms or lack of symptoms, demographic and contact information.
The survey should be completed for every member of the household. The information is confidential and will only be used by JCDHE to determine how COVID-19 is spreading in the community.
You will be asked to do this same survey several more times in the next few weeks in order to compare results.
Here is the agenda for Monday's City Council meeting. City Hall will remain closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the Governing Body will participate by video call-in only. The public will be able to view the meeting at https://www.facebook.com/CityofPrairieVillage.
All comments for Public Participation must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to 5 p.m. on April 6 to be shared at the meeting.
Congratulations to Colby Brim on his recent promotion to Public Works Maintenance Worker II.
From Public Works Field Superintendent James Carney:
"We interviewed him two years ago for a Maintenance Worker I position. During the 'Do you have experience with....' portion of the interview, questions went something like this:
Snow removal? No.
Sports field maintenance? No.
Tree, shrub, or flower bed maintenance? No.
Playground maintenance? No.
Commercial drivers license? No.
Mowing? Just around the house.
He said he was honest, dependable, and punctual.
There was a common theme from his references: Honest, dependable, punctual, AND hard-working.
We hired him. Turns out what he said was true. What his references said was also.
Last week I was privileged to inform Colby Brim that he had earned his promotion to Maintenance Worker II."
We're happy to have you as part of the team, Colby!

Today is #CensusDay! By now, all residents should have received their invitation by mail to participate in the 2020 Census. One of the most important things you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up. https://2020census.gov/
The Governor has set up an online form for businesses to verify if they are "essential" under the statewide stay at home order: https://governor.kansas.gov/KEFF/
Here's more information about the statewide order. Thanks to the League of Kansas Municipalities for providing us this poster.
