Chattanooga, TN – On Friday, February 26th, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke is scheduled to sign an Executive Order that will reopen City Hall, the Development Resource Center and the Chattanooga Public Library branches to the public.
Although these facilities will once again be open for citizens to visit, the City is still requiring all those visiting to wear masks per Health Directive No.5 from Mayor Jim Coppinger and the Hamilton County Health Officer.
The current Hamilton County Mask Mandate runs through at least March 31st.
The City has stated they will provide masks to those without them, while supplies last.
City Hall is currently open for residents who are in need of paying their 2020 City of Chattanooga property taxes.
However, residents can also pay their taxes on the chattannoga.gov website or at any First Horizon location within Hamilton County.
Hours to pay taxes in person at City Hall are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday, February 27 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The City’s Youth and Family Development Centers will still remain closed to the public.
However, five centers are operating at Virtual Learning Centers for those enrolled in HCS At Home.
While the library branches will be open, it will be for limited computer use, printing, copying, faxing, and appointments for notary services, passports and local history research.
Those wishing to check out or return books can continue to do so via curbside service.
The Avondale Branch remains closed until the City reopens its YFD Centers.
While buildings will reopen for public access, many City services can still be accessed on the chattanooga.gov website.
