From Amite Mayor Walter Daniel
As the nation, state and towns are slowly opening up, we must stay vigilant! Continue social-distancing, hand-washing, wearing a mask and be aware of your surroundings. By continuing to do these things, our town and our families can return to the “new” normal as soon as possible.
Our next Amite Town Council meeting will be held Tuesday, June 2 at 7 p.m. At this time, I believe we can be open to the public with precautions. Only 25% of the regular capacity will be allowed inside. If anyone would like to submit a question or statement for public comment, please submit an email to Office Administrator Susan Frazier, firstname.lastname@example.org before noon on Monday, June 1.
As of now, we are continuing our curfew from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. We will reevaluate this situation as the opening of the town progresses.
More of our businesses are opening every day, so little by little our town is returning to its hustle and bustle. I encourage our residents to “Shop Local.” Our businesses are here when we need them, so now is the time to support them as much as we can.
We are preparing to open the doors of City Hall soon. Please again remember to respect other persons space, wear your mask and be patient. You can still call City Hall at 985-748-8761 anytime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday – Friday to handle business over the phone.
A big shout out to our city workers for not missing a day picking up garbage, keeping our water and sewer running and continuing to maintain our streets.
They have gone above and beyond to insure all city functions are being handled properly and in the way we are accustomed to.
Times are rough right now, but through compliance and prayer our town and our residents will come out of this better and stronger than ever.
