CLARKSVILLE-MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – Montgomery County and Clarksville City government offices will remain closed Tuesday because of the continuing winter storm and hazardous travel conditions.
Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts and Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett announced the closing in a joint statement Monday that urged residents to stay home and off the roadways.
The mayors said City, County and State road crews are working hard to make major thoroughfares passable, but with more precipitation and bitterly cold temperatures on the way, they decided it was in the best interest of the community to close government offices on Tuesday.
“Let’s just focus on staying home so public safety and street crews can do their jobs,” Mayor Pitts said.
Mayor Durrett added: “This is a major winter event, and I do not expect conditions to get much better until the end of the week. I encourage everyone to stay home, if possible."
City and County public safety departments will be on duty as usual and all essential services will continue.
