Due to an electrical fire in the mechanical room of the police department early on Sunday morning, the Sanford Municipal Center is closed to the public and employees for Monday, January 22.
Important: The Customer Service Department will not be able to take walk-in or telephone payments for Monday. Therefore, no late fees will be assessed and there will be no cut-offs for that day. Online payments will be accepted as usual.
The department plans to be operational at the Public Works Service Center by Tuesday.
The Sanford Police Department will set up the Mobile Unit in front of the municipal building for those who need police assistance while the building is closed. The 9-1-1 Telecommunications Center will operate from a remote site.
Other affected departments include Administration, Engineering, Human Resources, and Legal. No other municipal facilities were affected.
For questions or concerns, contact the Service Center at 919-775-8247. For after-hours emergencies, call 919-775-8268.
