My citizens, at the close of 2020, I want to address you and give you my compliments for your response to a very distressful year. We have witnessed things with our own eyes that we never believed possible a short time ago. We went from 2% unemployment to 22% unemployment in a few short weeks. We went from minor illnesses to a world pandemic almost overnight. We saw blame for the virus being animals, scientists in labs, political figureheads, etc., but no solution came quickly. Now it seems that a vaccine has been manufactured that might bring an end to this nightmare. If this new vaccine works, we might have a better year in 2021, let us hope for that.
During all the distress you the people of Hamilton have had great courage to go out and work and keep our children in school which is especially important for their futures. I am so proud of you all for keeping the faith in a most difficult time. We will all surly look back on 2020 as a year that made history.
On a brighter note the community will soon be enjoying food from our new Domino’s Pizza restaurant and our new Arby’s located inside the new Love’s Store and Truck Service Center. Also, we are doing business at the new NAPA Auto Parts Store. The downtown court square area is just full of new businesses. What I am saying is that as we enter the new year let us try to find something that we can be grateful for.Sincerely,
The City of Hamilton is actively monitoring the Coronavirus outbreak, and continuing to assess plans that city officials and the public should take. While this is a time for concern, we greatly caution against any state of panic. The Mayor's office is in communication with the CDC, FEMA, and the Alabama Department of Public Health through our Emergency Management Agency, as well as our local hospital. The Authorities in each of these organizations recommend that we all take precautions as we would for a flu outbreak. Things such as frequent hand washing for 20 seconds, refraining from touching your face or nose, when coughing or sneezing do so in the cuff, elbow, or use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose, also the continuous disinfecting of tables, chairs and doorknobs. The public inquiry line for Alabama Department of Public Health is: (334) 206-5347.
Please be assured that our greatest interest is to help advocate for healthy community, and we ask that all of the wonderful people who live, work, and visit our city assist us by taking the mentioned precautions.
