Citizens urged to reach City of Clarksville online or by phone.
Clarksville, TN – Citizens are urged to communicate with City of Clarksville Departments and offices by using online services, email, telephones, mail and drive-up windows and drop boxes to help reduce the resurgent spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus infections.
“With increased community spread of COVID-19 in Tennessee, and Governor Bill Lee’s new Executive Order limiting gatherings to 10 people, we’re taking steps to limit access to many City facilities,” Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts said Monday.
“We are going to keep providing services at a high level, but I strongly recommend during this ongoing public health emergency that residents first make contact with the City Department they need either online or by phone before visiting an office,” stated Mayor Pitts.
The best way to find information about City Departments is to access www.cityofclarksville.com and click on the “Departments” tab. Each department’s page offers a wealth of information, links to forms, email addresses and phone numbers to call for assistance, if needed.
If anyone must conduct business face-to-face, please call or email the specific department before coming to an office. This will help with the CDC’s recommendation for social distancing, and you may be able to complete your business remotely.
Here is some additional advice from specific departments:
