Century closes down town hall

Two employees test positive for COVID-19; checks, money orders only for utility bills


July 30, 2020

Century Town Hall closed its lobby doors last Friday, July 24, for the health and safety our its staff and public following two employees who tested positive for COVID-19.

“I'm bringing one person in a day, but only to answer the phone,” said Century Mayor Henry Hawkins. “We are taking payments, through the drop-box, we are doing what we've got to do. We cannot take cash because there is only one employee present and they will not be in a face-to-face situation, so there is no way to prove the amount.”

Hawkins said all town employees have gotten tested since then.

“Somebody is always there, we just don't greet the public,” said Hawkins. “We are still taking work orders and other departments are working still.”

Hawkins said town hall has been cleaned and disinfected.

Customers can still make payments with checks or money orders using the drop-box next to the drive-up window, but no cash payments will be accepted.

Credit card payments will be accepted Friday, July 31 and Wednesday, Aug. 5, with other dates added as needed.

Anyone who needs further assistance can email Town Clerk Kim Godwin at [email protected] or Mayor Hawkins at [email protected] or contact city hall at 850-256-3208 during business hours from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, until further notice.
