address this issue. We also caution our residents concerning 

alternate heating sources in terms of potential carbon monoxide 

hazard as well as fire hazards.

   We strongly recommend that residents exercise good

forecast of inclement winter weather for Andalusia

Written by Staff

Due to the forecast of inclement winter weather, all nonessential city offices, i.e., the adult activity center, library, golf course, Johnson Park, etc., will be closed. City Hall, including utility offices, will be open, but not completely staffed to monitor weather and to direct operations, if conditions deteriorate. Citizens are urged to stay home and off streets and roads especially if ice develops. Police, Fire, Public Works and all utility departments will be fully staffed and ready to respond should conditions warrant. Please use extreme caution if travel becomes necessary and remember to take care of the elderly, children, pets, and remember to use appliances, extra heaters and generators properly. Please connect generators directly to appliances and not to power sources. Not connected properly, generators can cause deadly accidents.
