We have been closely monitoring the advice and direction of the CDC, WHO and state and local agencies regarding the COVID-19 situation. Our goal is to follow their advice while limiting the impact on city services and protecting city employees. Below are changes being made in that effort.

-Beginning, Monday, March 16th, the Irondale Public Library will be closed to the public until further notice.
-Municipal court sessions, typically held every Thursday, have been postponed until April 16th. The municipal court office will remain open to conduct other court related business.
-We will be encouraging the public to do any license renewals, permitting and payments online for business licenses, water bills, driver’s licenses, garbage sign up, sales tax, court payments, etc.
-We will be adjusting staff so that they are all able to practice social distancing recommendations as much as possible.
-The safety day scheduled for Saturday, March 21st is being postponed with the future date to be announced.
