Ozark taking steps to minimize COVID-19 exposure

Ozark Mayor Bob Bunting and the Ozark City Council are diligently working to help insure the health and safety of residents, employees and visitors. These steps are being taken to minimize the impact of COVID-19 in the community by limiting exposure.

All city offices will remain open with limited access. The public is asked to use the front door of city hall as all other entrances will be locked.

Before entering, everyone will be asked a few health questions and temperatures will be monitored by trained Fire and EMS Personnel. Only five people at one time will be allowed entrance.

Municipal Court payments may be made in person, online at www.ozarktickets.com or you may call the magistrate at (334) 774-9311.

Business license renewals, building permits and garbage payments can be made in person or call Beth Grider at (334) 774-7032.

All other questions may be directed to the city clerk’s office at (334) 774-5393.

All recreation programs, including youth sports, are suspended until further notice.

The swimming program is expected to open as scheduled in April.

The Crawdad Festival has been postponed until late May. A date will be announced as soon as possible.

The tennis courts, Dale County Lake and the playgrounds are still open to the public. “We ask that you limit gatherings to no more than 10 people as encouraged by the Center for Disease Control,” Bunting said.
