McMinnville city administrator Nolan Ming announced Tuesday that due to declining numbers of positive cases of COVID-19 in Warren County over the past several weeks, the city is making accessibility changes to city properties.

“As of Sept. 29 we are at 8.1 cases per 100,000 over the past 14 days. It was based on this guidance as of last week that we decided to reopen all city lobbies and the wellness center at the mall,” said Ming.

The wellness center at the mall is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

“Group exercise classes are being held on the pool deck and you can check the city website for the schedule,” Ming said. “The Park Theater is now open and available for events with restrictions in accordance with the Tennessee Pledge guidelines.”

Ming reported all lobbies are now open including Bell Street and community development which is now back on the second floor at city hall. Police, fire, and public works lobbies are also now open.

“The elevator project has finally been completed at City Hall,” Ming said. “Work is underway on the third floor and the basement at City Hall to prepare for the police department to relocate from Red Road. The move is scheduled for Oct. 5.”

“First floor painting, flooring, and a new walk-up window has been completed at City Hall and HVAC work is currently in progress,” Ming said. “When complete, the administrative, utility billing, taxes, and business license staff will all relocate to the first floor of city hall from Bell Street. The move is scheduled for Oct. 19.” 

Ming invited anyone with questions to call 931-473-1200.
