'Stay diligent, informed,' Coffee County Administrator says

Stay diligent and stay informed.

That is some of the advice that Coffee County Administrator Rod Morgan gave to those attending the Coffee County Commission meeting March 23.

At the Monday morning meeting, participants were seated the requisite six feet apart in accordance with Alabama Department of Public Health requirements during the current COVID-19 threat but Morgan said that alternate venues for the commission meetings are being explored.

The commission is working with all county officials to provide for public access to government resources and continuing services essential to public health and safety,” Morgan said. “Evaluations of public access to buildings are ongoing and may be modified based on federal or state actions, as well as local conditions.”

Information about county offices and links to individual can be found online at www.coffeecounty.us. “The vast majority of transactions—including payments, recording documents and viewing documents or maps—can be conducted online,” Morgan said. “If it is necessary to come to a county office, please limit any visits only to those persons essential to conduct a transaction and respect social distancing guidelines by standing at least six feet apart.”

The circuit clerk’s office will continue to process payments and filings but will be available in person by appointment only. There is a secure drop box outside of the clerk’s office in Elba and Enterprise for payments and documents. The Elba Circuit Clerk’s office is available by phone at (334) 897-2954 or call (334) 347-2519 for the Circuit Clerk’s Office in Enterprise.
