The Town of Smyrna has continually encouraged residents to follow the Executive Orders of Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, as well as adherence to the recommendations and best practices communicated by the Centers for Disease Control.
“Citizens within the Town of Smyrna have questions and the Town staff has worked diligently to respond to those inquiries on a daily basis since the pandemic threat began,” Mayor Mary Esther Reed said. “We have proactively shared information via press releases, video messaging, our social media platforms, our local channel 3, and on our website. I am so proud of our personnel and their dedication to continuing to serve each of you. We are a vibrant, resilient community and I know we will emerge from this stronger than ever.”
On March 13, the Town announced closure of its Parks and Recreation facilities, Event Center, and Golf Course in order to emphasize the necessity of social distancing and discouraging gatherings of 10 or more people within the same immediate areas.
Understanding the difficulties some of our utility customers may experience financially, on March 17, the Town announced that our Water, Sewer and Gas providers will not terminate service or apply late fees for the duration of the Governor’s State of Emergency.
Effective March 20, Town Hall was closed to the public and operational modifications were made to continue to serve citizens.
