As many of you know, Fentress County Government buildings have been closed to public access to protect our citizens and our employees since March 20th, 2020. As of Tuesday, March 31st, 2020 the decision has been made to keep Fentress County Government buildings closed to the public and by appointment only. This will remain in effect until Monday April 13th, 2020 and will be reevaluated at that time. This will now include the closure of the South Fentress Park per the Governors Executive order 22 Section 4 paragraph (d). The Fentress County Library will remain completely closed to the public.
Our Senior Center will be continuing the meals on wheels program to our seniors. The new curb service drive thru has been very successful and we appreciate all of the volunteers and churches who have went above and beyond to serve our most vulnerable population. Reminder you must call ahead the day before if you are a member and reserve your meal. Contact Alice or Kelly at 931-879-7249.
This is a new update for Solid Waste on how to handle your household waste, Through April 13th,2020 our Solid Waste department will have normal business hours at each convenience site. We will have an attendant at each site to direct you on where to place your trash and recyclables. For their safety we Will NOT assist you with placing your trash in the compactor. If you are elderly or disabled you can remain in your vehicle and the attendant will assist you with your household waste. If we are assisting you with your trash please place it in your trunk or in the bed of your pickup. With any heavy loads please try to use the woodyard convenience site located at 3275 South York Highway.
We are all trying to adapt and make the best changes possible to protect our employees and citizens. Please understand that we are following all Executive Orders and want to strongly encourage you to do the same.
Jimmy Johnson, Fentress County Executive.
