City Hall is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
Study Session @ 5 pm in Old City Hall – Courthouse Second Floor
On September 1, 2015 City Council will hold a study session to discuss potential uses for the second floor of the historical Jacksonville Courthouse.
Throughout the duration of “extreme fire hazard” status there will be no smoking allowed at Britt Festivals.
During the current extreme fire danger conditions, the City of Jacksonville recommends that you avoid the following:
1. Using BBQ grills and backyard fire pits or pans of any type if burning wood or charcoal
2. Smoking in areas of dry combustible vegetation
3. Mowing dead, dry-‐grassy or weed-‐covered areas with power driven equipment (the Stouts fire was started by a lawn mower)
4. Running any power equipment without adequate spark arresters
5. Storing flammable or combustible liquids with rags in closed areas
6. Driving or parking on dry grass
7. Using power tools during high temperatures and after 1:00pm
The above is by no means a complete list. Please contact the fire department at 541-‐899-‐7246 or stop by the station at 180 N 3rd St. for additional information. Remember, Jacksonville does not allow open burning. Keep a garden hose or fire extinguisher (recently inspected) nearby when doing any activity that might start a fire.
