The City of Omro will be continuously updating this webpage with information as it becomes available.
CITY BUILDINGS: The City Hall is open to regular full-service traffic. We are looking to limit the potential exposure at municipal buildings to protect staff and the general public. Please continue to call the respective departments in lieu of coming in to learn what alternate options there are to conduct business over the phone, email or fax. We also provide a no contact table between the front doors for picking up forms for building permits, boat licenses and dog & cat licenses. There are envelopes and clean pens available if you wish to submit your payment while in the lobby. Masks are requested to be worn by those are not vaccinated, per current CDC guidelines.

GENERAL INQUIRIES: If you have a general service inquiry or need assistance from City staff, please call or email rather than visit. We can be reached at 920-685-7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We likely can complete your request or transaction without in-person interactions.
PAYMENTS: If you are looking to make a City payment, please contact us by phone to discuss options that would avoid face-to-face contact. Options may include on-line payments or use of the red and white dropbox located outside the entrance to City Hall 24/7. Envelopes for payments are located between the front doors of city hall.
