Ringgold, GA (March 17, 2020) - Out of concern for the health and well-being of our neighbors, the Catoosa County Board of Commissioners will restrict in-person access to the general public at its regular and special called meetings beginning Tuesday, March 17, and continuing through the duration of the statewide public health emergency declared by Governor Brian Kemp. As the Board will continue to conduct necessary County business, the public will have real time virtual access to meetings via livestream on the Catoosa County Government Facebook page.
This action is in response to the coronavirus/COVID-19-19 outbreak and is necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the County during this public health emergency and is otherwise authorized under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. Sec. 5-14-1(g)). Citizens will not be permitted to attend meetings of the Board of Commissioners in-person. People who have specific business on a published meeting agenda of the Board of Commissioners may be invited by the Board on a case-by-case basis to attend and participate in a meeting for specified limited purposes. Anyone who signed up to speak during the public comments portion of the March 17, 2020 Board of Commissioners meeting will be notified when normal meeting procedures are resumed and given an opportunity to address the Board at that time.
We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding. For the latest information on Catoosa County’s response to COVID-19 please visit www.catoosa.com.

Proposed Approval of Resolution to Close Inside Dining at Restaurants – (Chad Young, County Attorney)
3/20/2020 As schools across the region close, we have been truly inspired by community efforts to keep neighbors and families nourished. We commend our school systems for quickly developing logistics of food pick-up and deliveries for all children. Several business owners across the region have inspired us with their generosity as they open the doors of their restaurants so that students of their community may eat at no cost.
Use our interactive food site map to find a pick-up spot near you. Please note that the duration of meal service and service schedule differs among counties.
