Town Hall, including Post Office, is closed to the public until further notice.  Please call or email departments directly for service or contact the main email or telephone line to be directed to the correct department. 

Town Leaders are actively engaged in monitoring COVID-19 developments through direct contact with their governmental partners at the State and Federal levels and are planning and acting accordingly pursuant to the best information and advice from national, state and county public health experts and officials.

In light of recent federal and state health and safety guidance, the Town, by a unanimous resolution of the Town Council upon a special meeting called by the Mayor on March 17, 2020, has implemented an action plan to protect the health and safety of citizens and employees, effective immediately. Mayor Bien-Willner also issued a proclamation on March 17, 2020 that corresponds with the declarations of emergency by the President of the United States and the Governor of the State of Arizona to ensure that public health and safety are preserved and that the best practices from health experts are continually being followed until we emerge from this current situation together.  Along with the other preventative measures explained in the links below, "social distancing" and restricting social gatherings to 10 persons or less are to be observed in the Town of Paradise Valley.

In order to ensure the health and welfare of our citizens and our employees, Paradise Valley Town Hall in-person services are being curtailed in accordance with State, Federal and local recommendations regarding COVID-19 effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020. The Town’s intention is to continue to provide as many services as possible while having our employees work remotely. 

The Mayor and Town Council, the Town Manager and key personnel are meeting and reviewing COVID-19 response recommendations and requirements constantly. We will post updates here as information changes.

Rest assured that all critical Town services, including specifically Police, Fire, and ambulance services will remain ongoing and intact, although with some additional safety protocols to protect first responder and citizen safety at all times.  Please continue to use non-emergency numbers for any situations that do not require emergency attention.
