PINSON — The city of Pinson has closed several non-essential city facilities in order to combat COVID-19. Mayor Hoy Sanders made the announcement on Tuesday, March 17, 2020.
All non-essential city facilities, including Pinson Public Library, Parks and Recreation, Bicentennial Park, and the Pinson Community Center are closed until further notice.
The Pinson Public Library will provide curbside service for materials beginning Tuesday, March 17th.
The City of Pinson Planning Commission will not meet next week.
“There were no zoning cases, and due to the state of emergency, the meeting is canceled,” said Sanders.
The city council will continue to meet regularly, but there will be changes.
“We will keep business to the absolute minimum and public comment will only be allowed on a case-by-case basis and must pre-register,” Hoyt explained. “Although it remains a public meeting, attendance is discouraged as recommended by health authorities. We will adjust seating to provide for recommended social distancing.”
The city said it will keep online information updated and will attempt to live-stream its April 2 meeting.
City Hall is open but officials are asking for telephone or email communication for business needs.
“We encourage citizens to limit all non-essential contact or departures from home as directed during the emergency,” Hoyt said.
Senior Day Activities are canceled for March.
