The New Ulm City Council will once again discuss plans for the eventual reopening of city facilities, today. The council will consider the exact date certain facilities will reopen and whether to limit users. The Park and Recreation Commission previously considered reopening the fitness and cardio portions of Vogel Fieldhouse in June, but would likely limit users and have reduced hours of operation. Parks and playgrounds may also reopen, but with a limit on users and with social distancing in effect. The New Ulm Library could potentially reopen in June with computer use by appointment. Hours of operation and user numbers would also likely be reduced. In certain situations the ability to reopen facilities will depend on Gov. Tim Walz’s decision to extend stay at home orders. The council will also consider extending the peacetime state of emergency until Friday, June 12.
