COVID-19 is a situation that continues to change by the day, which is why Huntsville, Madison and Madison County leaders have been holding daily briefings.
Thursday, Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle made a point to mention that for now, local government will remain operational.
"To the people out there city hall is open. We will remain open and it is important for your government to remain open. We are still picking up your trash. Public safety officers are still in place. We are still issueing building permits. We are still doing inspections and we are still building roads because we are going to make sure that the city stays open."Mayor Tommy Battle
