Please note, however, that the majority of City of Suffolk facilities, as well as the Treasurer’s Office and the Commissioner of the Revenue’s Office inside City Hall and their satellite offices at the North Suffolk Library, remain closed to the public until further notice due to the impacts of COVID-19.
Alpha Personnel for the Suffolk Police Department, and others as directed by their Supervisor, should report for duty as usual.

The North Suffolk Library and Morgan Memorial Library, as well as the East Suffolk Recreation Center, Whaleyville Recreation Center, and Suffolk Art Gallery will be opening at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2021, for any pre-scheduled events and activities, in addition to the Parks & Recreation KidsZone Camp at the King’s Fork Middle School Joint Use Facility.
In anticipation of potential inclement weather, the Public Works Department began loading and brining operations at noon today. We will be conducting these operations to give some coverage to bridges and elevated roadway surfaces. We do not anticipate an expanded use of brine for this event due to a period of rain preceding any potential snow.
We have 24 pieces of equipment, including snowplows and spreaders, fueled and ready to put into service if needed. We are fully stocked with sand and salt.
Drivers should exercise caution in their driving by driving alert and attentive, keeping their speed down, allowing a safe distance from the vehicle in front of them and avoiding sudden directional changes. Drivers should also leave a safe distance from Public Works vehicles to avoid being hit from material being spread on the road.
To report roadway issues, citizens can contact Public Works at 514-7600.
