SNELLVILLE — With a goal of being proactive to reduce resident and employee exposure to the Corona Virus, the following actions have taken place and will be in effect through April 2.
All departments will remain staffed and operational, but city business will be conducted by phone and electronically. Public access to city buildings will be restricted to appointments only and to absolutely necessary in-person meetings. Contact information will be posted at all locations.
“Developing and implementing changes such as these is a tough balancing act,” said Mayor Barbara Bender. “We are a public entity owing our existence to our citizens and restricting access for them is a difficult step. However, city leaders have a responsibility to guarantee a safe workplace for our employees and a greater responsibility to our state and nation as a whole to do all we can to arrest the spread of this virus across our country. Hopefully these will be short term changes, but we will be reassessing every day and keeping in touch with you as we try to continue to do the right thing for all concerned.”
City facilities covered by this action include: Snellville City Hall, Snellville Senior Center, Snellville Police Department, Snellville Public Works Office/Recycling Center and Snellville Parks and Recreation Offices at Briscoe Park.
No public events or meetings will be held or scheduled during this time period within our facilities.
Those who need to do business with the Planning and Development Department can call 770-985-3514 to make an appointment or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The occupation tax due date will be extended to April 30, to delay the need for physical access to our Planning Department within City Hall.
Municipal Court has been canceled. To speak to a Municipal Court Clerk call 770-985-3500. If you have a case scheduled you will get a notice in the mail with your new court date. As always, tickets can be paid online by visiting snellville.org.
