In an effort to reduce community exposure to the COVID-19 virus, Farragut Town Hall and Community Center are closed to the public until further notice. The Knox County Clerk and Trustee office located at Town Hall is also closed. Town of Farragut staff continue to report to work and provide services to the community. The Town’s permitting process continues online. 

Farragut parks are open for passive use only. All park playgrounds, restrooms and athletic fields are closed. Please practice social distancing on greenways and trails.

In response to Governor Bill Lee's executive order regarding virtual public meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic, Town of Farragut public meetings will be held virtually until further notice.

In response to the negative impact of COVID-19 on the business community, the Town has issued a Temporary Sign Order that allows Farragut businesses to have temporary signs. Read the provisions here. The temporary policy ends on April 27. For a list of Farragut businesses that are currently open, please visit farragutbusiness.com/covid.html.

The Tennessee Supreme Court has suspended all in-person court proceedings through April 30. When Farragut Municipal Court resumes on May 11, anyone exhibiting symptoms consistent with those known to be associated with the COVID-19 virus may be prevented from entering the courtroom or may be asked to leave the courtroom. Anyone cited to court, appearing as a witness, or desiring to attend any sessions of the Town of Farragut Municipal Court in person for any reason that has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus should contact the Court Clerk at 865-218-3363 or at jhatmaker@townoffarragut.org and make that fact known before appearing in court.
