FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — The City of Franklin city hall will now be closed to the public for their safety and the safety of employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, City Administrator Eric Stuckey announced.

Services at city hall will continue online or by phone.

"In light of Governor Lee's strengthened mandate requiring Tennesseans to stay home and our own City Stay at Home order, I've decided it's best to close city hall," said Stuckey. "We will continue to have a group of essential employees still at work to perform city services, but the building will be closed. Citizens can call or do business online, just not in-person."

City meetings will continue virtually. Citizens can watch them online at the Franklin website, on the Franklin YouTube page or the Franklin Facebook page. Citizens will still be able to comment on topics at the meeting. Information on city meetings can be found on Franklin's website.

All other essential city services are expected to continue as usual.
