As an effort to follow the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendations to help limit potential exposure to the Coronavirus, the Town of Spring City will now be limiting public access to city facilities as well as our public parks. Therefore, starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020, City Hall and the Audrey Pack Memorial Library will be closed to the public. However, the staff and all city employees will be available to help you if needed. We are not closing city parks at this time. However, playground areas, pavilions, the dog park, tennis courts, etc. will be closed.
We will not be taking new park pavilion reservations during this time. If you have already reserved a pavilion for a future date, and we are still following these guidelines, we will be happy to refund your money. We have also cancelled all non-essential meetings to include any currently scheduled commission meetings.
These measures will remain in effect thru March 31, 2020. However, will be subject to change given future needs or recommendations. We will keep you posted on any changes to this policy.
