An Update From City Hall...December 23, 2015

On behalf of your Mayor and City Council, and your entire staff at the City of Clinton, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year! Here is an update from City Hall...

·       Christmas Holidays: City business offices will be closed on Thursday, December 24, and Friday, December 25, in observance of Christmas. Public Safety personnel will work a normal schedule except for DPS administration. Public Works personnel will be available if needed. There will be no sanitation service on the 24th or 25th.


·       CNNGA: Heavy rains resulted in the partial collapse of a roof structure at the CNNGA offices. CNNGA customer service personnel have been relocated to the M. S. Bailey Municipal Center temporarily.


·       Sanitary Sewer: The heavy rains this fall continue to cause challenges with our sewer system and inflow and infiltration of rain water is high. Personnel are working with some residents who have reported problems to try to identify solutions to those problems.


·       Sanitation: Citizens are reminded of the sanitation schedule adjustments that will take place in January. All customers should have received a letter explaining the changes, a new sanitation schedule, and a flyer outlining what the city collects and what it does not collect in the mail this week. Next week, city crews will place a sticker on every garbage can that explains the changes and a door hanger on every residence that also explains the changes. During the first few weeks after the change, DPW personnel will work with customers as needed to make sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.
