New Albany Mayor Tim Kent confirmed that city offices will remain closed Wednesday due to icy conditions and in anticipation of more bad weather.
As with Union County, the city will not collect garbage Wednesday, either, because the Three Rivers Regional Landfill remains closed.
While many main streets in New Albany had one lane clear, everything that had melted was expected to refreeze Tuesday night, making driving much more hazardous.
City schools are already scheduled to move to virtual learning Wednesday.
Anyone with a light, gas or water emergency may call 662-534-1041. A dispatcher is on duty 24 hours a day.
For the benefit of city employees, Mayor Kent said that although City Hall will be closed the staff will be working on payroll.
Closing decisions are being made on a day-to-day basis.closing, emergency, garbage, mayor, New Albany, Northeast Mississippi, Union County
