Pelham’s central web-location for all information related to the COVID-19 event.

Message from the Mayor Gary W. Waters

I would like to thank everyone for helping us to serve you better. I can tell by the low volume of traffic on the highway that many of you are making a genuine effort to stay at home. During this time of "Social Distancing" the safest place for you to be is at home. If you will stay at home, wash your hands and check on your neighbors, we will get through this thing. Keep up to date with our website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. We will continue to push information out as it becomes available.


How You Can Support Local Business

The City of Pelham understands that the following weeks will be difficult for many of our local businesses and employees. We encourage citizens to continue to support Pelham’s local businesses.  Below are a few constructive ways to support our local and small businesses in this time.

  • Buy gift cards or certificates: A little here and there can hold small businesses over
  • Shop online: Check Facebook, Instagram and other social media outlets for business websites or stores
  • Order takeout and/or use drive through and curbside pick-up options
  • Tip generously
  • If you are a business with employees working extended hours, consider bringing in meals from a Pelham restaurant.
