City Update on Coronavirus

Mayor Geierman's statement on upcoming City meetings and events:

"The city manager and I have been closely monitoring the news about COVID-19 and its spread throughout the state of Georgia. To make sure our hospitals are not overwhelmed with patients, it is critical for us all to do our part to help slow down the spread of the disease.

"Because of this, the City will be postponing all public gatherings for at least the next 30 days. This includes the business forum we were planning to hold on Tuesday, March 17, as well as the Spring Fling family event on Saturday, April 4. Both events will be rescheduled as soon as possible. All parks and recreation activities will be suspended for 30 days. Starting on Tuesday, March 17, all court dates will be postponed for at least two weeks. Effective immediately, the Library will be closed through Tuesday, March 31, and all Civic Center events will be postponed for 30 days. City staff who can work from home are being encouraged and equipped to do so.

"For now, we still plan to hold our council meetings, but we strongly encourage the public to watch the video that is posted on the city's website, rather than attending in person. Those wishing to make public comment for Wednesday's council meeting are asked to submit their comment, including name, address and phone number, to between 8 a.m. Monday, March 16, and 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 17. Comments will be read into the record but must not exceed three minutes.

"My top concerns as Doraville's mayor are ensuring both public safety and the continuation of essential government services. These measures are meant to help ensure that."
