CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Clarksville’s Revenue Office and Clarksville Municipal Court will close their service windows in the lobby of City Hall next week to help reduce the resurgent spread of coronavirus infections.
The windows will remain open through the close of business at 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31 to accommodate customers who need to contact the offices in person. Thereafter, the windows -- including the state Department of Motor Vehicles service window -- will be closed Friday to observe New Year’s Day and remain closed until further notice starting Monday, Jan. 4.
“With increased community spread of COVID-19 in Tennessee, we’re ratcheting up our efforts to limit access to many City facilities,” Mayor Joe Pitts said. “We will keep providing services at a high level, but these measures are necessary to keep citizens and our workforce as safe as possible during this ongoing public health emergency.”
Mayor Pitts urges residents to make contact with the Revenue Office, City Court and other City Departments either online or by phone before visiting an office. A guide to pandemic-related operational changes and how to reach City Departments is online at http://bit.ly/3p9RwpY.
