In order to ensure that we have municipal staff available to continue to meet municipal operations we will be closing the office and shop to the public.  This is part of the Village of Linden’s Business Continuity Plan and risk mitigation.  We are taking this step based on the ongoing developments both outside and within Alberta and in the actions being taken by other jurisdictions.  The risk of exposure is still considered low in Alberta.
