Parks

Playgrounds and basketball courts in City parks closed until further notice.

Based on the strong recommendation of the governor and state health officials, the City of Montgomery has closed all basketball courts starting immediately.  Park staff has placed closed signage at the courts.  Residents should continue to enjoy Montgomery’s beautiful parks and paved walking paths.

Families must stay alert and discuss with younger members why it is vital to continue to maintain a 6-foot distance from others and practice the CDC-advised precautions, such as washing hands for 20 seconds and coughing into your elbow.  The best way to prevent illness from the COVID-19 virus is to avoid exposure to this virus. The best way to save lives is to stop the spread of the virus.

The City is in constant communication with state, county, and local leaders and is making decisions that are in the best interest of the community.

Your compliance with the State of Ohio stay at home order will save lives and speed up the conclusion of this order.

Other Services

Montgomery Police and Fire Departments will continue to operate during this time.

Rumpke Trash and Recycling collection will continue to take place as scheduled. Simple Recycling has suspended curbside textile recycling effective immediately.
