STOCKBRIDGE – Facilities owned by the city of Stockbridge remain closed to the public as a precaution against the coronavirus COVID-19.

The facilities are closed, at the very least, through Friday. During this time, staff will telework and not physically report to city offices or facilities. Voicemail messages to individual phone extensions can be left daily and will be returned as soon as possible.

City emails will be active as normal during this temporary closure so community members are welcomed to utilize email use as well.

Staff contact information can be found online by visiting the city’s website. City sponsored in-person events have been suspended at this time.

“We are constantly evaluating changing health data to determine when to responsibly re-open our offices and facilities for both staff and the public,” said Randy Knighton, Stockbridge city manager, in a release. “The health and well-being of everyone continues to be at the forefront of all decision-making. Our dedicated staff members are diligently teleworking and continuing to serve our citizens. We are in this together.”

During the temporary physical closure of offices, Stockbridge residents are encouraged to use online payment services for utility billing by visiting the city’s website.

City customers can also call 1-866-248-4696 to pay monthly water and sewer bills. Additionally, residents should call 404-234-7056 for all city emergency water concerns during this closure.

The city has extended another 30 day pay grace period for water and sewer customers during this critical time for the community.

Stockbridge community members are welcomed to contact City Manager Randy Knighton for any matter pertaining to city government operations by emailing
