The Town of Smyrna is reopening Town Hall to the public, effective Monday, June 1, 2020. Modifications have been made to ensure the safety of citizens and personnel. Citizens will continue to have the option of conducting business online, by phone, or by mail.

“Our decision-making is guided by maintaining the safety of our citizens and personnel,” explained Brian D. Hercules, Town Manager. “We have safeguards in place to ensure adherence to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as Governor Lee’s Tennessee Pledge, while we conduct business and deliver services to our citizens.”

Citizens that need to apply for new utilities services, apply for a transfer of service, or apply to disconnect service can do by visiting Town Hall or by calling 615-355-5740.

The Town’s meetings that are judicial, require a vote, and are essential to conducting business have been held throughout the pandemic, with modifications in place. Those meetings include Beer Board, Board of Zoning Appeals, Planning Commission, and Town Council (excluding Town Council Workshop). We continue to encourage any citizen that does not have an item on the agenda to consider watching the meeting on our local channel 3, via Facebook (@townofsmyrnatn), or YouTube (search Town of Smyrna).
