City of Fallon remains open for business with precautionary measures
The City of Fallon announced today that City Hall remains open for business, but with a focus on reduced in-person interactions in order to help mitigate the possible spread of COVID-19. In response to the CDC’s guidelines and out of an abundance of caution, The City of Fallon is encouraging all customers to make utility payments by phone, online viafallonnevada.gov/residents/utilities or use the four (4) utility payment dropbox locations throughout the city.
