City Council meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM. Agendas are posted at City Hall.


WE HAVE MOVED!! City Hall is now located in the Alma Flippo Memorial Library at the corner of S. Main Street and E. Garner Avenue. We have handicap access on the East side of the building and a drop box on the front of the building (directly under the window to the left of the steps). We are having some difficulty with our phone and internet - so please be patient as we are at the mercy of the provider.


UPDATE: NEW online payment, credit card payment (in office, online or by phone) and ACH bank draft options should all be up and running! For Bank Draft, there is a form to be filled out in the office and will require a voided check.
