OZARK, Ala. (WTVY) -- The City of Ozark is Taking Precautionary Steps to Minimize COVID-19 Exposure

Ozark Mayor Bob Bunting and the Ozark City Council are diligently working to help insure the health and safety of residents, employees and visitors. These steps are being taken to minimize the impact of COVID-19 in our community by limiting exposure.

All city offices will remain open with limited access. The public is asked to use the front door of City Hall as all other entrances will be locked. Before entering everyone will be asked a few health questions and temperature will be monitored by trained Fire and EMS Personnel. Only five (5) people at one time will be allowed entrance.

Municipal Court Payments may be made in person, online (www.ozarktickets.com) or you may call the Magistrate at 334-774-9311 for assistance.
Business License renewals, Building Permits and Garbage Payments can be made in person or call Beth Grider at 334-774-7032 concerning questions you may have.

All other questions may be directed to the City Clerk’s Office at 334-774-5393.
► All recreation programs, including youth sports, are suspended until further notice.
► The swimming program should open as scheduled in April.
► The Crawdad Festival has been postponed until late May. A date will be announced as soon possible.
