Message from the Mayor Gary W. Waters

"Leaders of our ESSENTIAL Pelham businesses,

The first comment I want to make is ALL of our businesses are ESSENTIAL. Some businesses are required by federal mandates to temporarily close or make operational changes, but they are still ESSENTIAL. Secondly, we are in the City of Pelham and in Shelby County, and we are not going to dictate to you how to run your business and when you should be closed to the public. You are quite capable of adhering to the federal mandates on your own.

Thank you for all you do for this community."
