Rochester City Hall will be closed on January 30 due to extremely cold dangerous weather. A post on the City's website says, "Only essential services, including that of public works and public safety departments will be active."

City Administrator, Steve Rymer said, “As a city of compassion, we encourage all members of our community to put safety first. The expected temperatures are dangerously cold. By limiting your exposure, you also help our public safety teammates limit theirs. This is a great reminder to keep a watchful eye out for neighbors and take extra care for family pets. We encourage our community to use your very best judgment when being outside in these coming days.”

The Rochester Public Library will also be closed on Wednesday and the Mayo Civic has cancelled all events planned on that day.
