Murfreesboro City Hall

Murfreesboro City Hall closed to the public effective Wednesday.

The temporary closure follows executive orders, including Executive Order 17 by Gov. Bill Lee and an emergency declaration on Saturday by Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland. The city’s declaration became effective at 6 p.m. Saturday with specific measures effective at midnight Monday.

“City employees will continue to deliver critical services to our residents throughout this challenging time as we battle the coronavirus threat,” McFarland said. “More than ever, Murfreesboro citizens will continue to rely on us to deliver critical services and support while we navigate these unprecedented days together.”

City Manager Craig Tindall said city offices will remain open with limited staff. Critical services like water, public safety and so forth will operate. For solid waste pickup, residents are asked to not set out brush, limb, and grass clippings. Commercial landscapers must haul away all debris.
