By the end of January, City Hall offices will be temporarily re-located for renovations to begin at City Hall. Due to offices moving, City Hall will be closed to the public on Thursday, January 28, 2021 and Friday, January 29, 2021.
The following is a list of where each office will be relocated beginning February 1, 2021:
Beginning January 21, 2021, the Mayor’s Office, City Manager’s Office and the Human Resource Department will be relocated to the old City of Douglas Gas Department located at 316 E. Bryan Street (next to the Douglas Housing Authority).
City Clerk, Customer Care Center, Customer Service, Billing, Collections, and Meter Technicians will be moved to the old SunTrust building located at 800 S. Peterson Avenue.
Community Development, Animal Control, Code Enforcement, Grants, Inspections & Permits, Planner, and Public Information will be located at the Ashley Slater House, 211 S. Gaskin Avenue.
Finance will be located at the old Electric Department building located at 321 S. Pearl Avenue (next to the railroad tracks).
Beginning February 4, 2021, City of Douglas Utility Customers should go to the old SunTrust building (800 S. Peterson Avenue) to pay their utility bill, request utility services, or make changes to utility services. Citizens wishing to apply for jobs may apply online or in person at the old Gas Department building. Bid openings will be held at the new Douglas Utilities building meeting room located at the Municipal Services Complex, 100 Public Works Way. City Commission meetings will continue to be held at the C.E. Weir Center (307 E. Bryan St.) on the 2nd & 4th Monday each month, unless otherwise publicized.
At times, phone lines may be temporarily out of order and citizens are encouraged to remain patient as this transition is underway. The relocation of offices can be expected for approximately two years. Once renovations are completed, City Hall will house all of these departments and divisions in one location.
