City of Grovetown to Extend Government facility closures until May 13, 2020, passed April 8, 2020

The City of Grovetown has extended its temporary closure of government facilities.

City Council held a Special Called meeting Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 5:00 pm where it repealed its old resolution and voted on a new one which extends the government facility closures to May 13,2020.

The City has established an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in City Hall. The EOC is handling all calls of a non-emergency nature. Our Department of Public Safety remains operational and will respond to calls for service as they always have. If you have a question, you are encouraged to call the EOC between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at (706) 863-4576, OPTION 1.

The City repealed its older resolution to add new language that complies with Governor Brian Kemp’s Shelter in Place Order. Public Safety officers and firefighters are now referred to as “Critical infrastructure.” Also, all City employees are “on-call” or in “stand-by” mode, which means they must be ready to come to work when called upon. Also, residents will see no service cut-offs nor will they acquire late fees throughout May 13, 2020.

The Mayor and City Council ask that you continue to follow the guidance of President Trump, Governor Kemp and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes avoiding public gatherings of more than 10 people, staying at home if possible - especially if you feel sick - contacting your primary care provider before traveling to a clinic or emergency room, washing your hands frequently, disinfecting often touched surfaces, and avoiding physical contact.
