We have received a lot of questions regarding the possibility of Dixie Youth and Little League starting team practices on Union County Recreation fields. Union County is still under an executive order from Governor Henry McMaster, which limits gatherings on county property to 50 persons or less. Union County will allow practice to begin on Union County-owned ball fields Monday, May 18th, provided that recommended CDC social distancing guidelines are followed and we do not exceed the 50-person limit set by the governor. Parties should contact the Timken Sports Complex staff at 864-427-0150 with any questions regarding use of county fields. Each league will be responsible for implementing measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and providing for the safety of their participants. Law enforcement is authorized by the governor to disperse crowds of 3 or more which are deemed to create a public health safety issue.
The Union County Courthouse will be reopening to the public on Monday, May 11th, from 9-5. They will be requiring those coming in to continue to practice social distancing measures. The Clerk of Court’s office and Family Court office will be open by appointment only, due to limited space to be able to maintain social distancing. For an appointment, call the Clerk of Court’s office at 429-1630 or the Family Court office at 429-1632.
City Hall will reopen to the public on Monday, May 4, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. Precautions are in place to follow COVID-19 guidelines such as social distancing and proper hand sanitization.
City of Union employees will be prepared to safely handle customer transactions. We ask that citizens and customers practice appropriate safety measures by socially distancing by six feet and utilizing the hand sanitation stations that are in place. We also ask for your continued patience during this time, as we expect lines and wait times to be longer than normal.
The City of Union is continuing to monitor COVID-19 with local, state, and national leaders. We are continuing to work very closely with our local governments, authorities, and the health officials to stay abreast of any new information that becomes available.
Joe Nichols, City Administrator

--CITY OF UNION--TEMPORARY POLICIES--EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MARCH 23, 2020
In an effort to lower the spread of COVID-19, we will be implementing the following temporary policies effective March 23, 2020:
CITY HALL WILL BE CLOSED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
We encourage everyone to use the drive-thru window, on-line services, or call by phone to conduct your business at City Hall.
We will be placing a doorbell at the main entrance to assist anyone who feels it is absolutely a necessity to see someone to conduct their business in person.
The City will suspend disconnection until March 31, 2020 due to the State of Emergency issued by Governor McMaster. We will comply with any mandates from the Office of Regulatory Staff after March 31, 2020.
As an added benefit, we will not charge the 1.5% convenience fee if you pay by credit card over the phone during this time.
The City of Union will continue to read meters and process billing. We encourage everyone to pay their utility bills on time, and any past due bills will have to be paid in full once the State of Emergency is lifted.
The City of Union is monitoring COVID-19 with local, state and national leaders. We are working very closely with our local governments, authorities and the health officials to stay abreast of any new information that comes available.
The City of Union will continue to provide the service that our customers rely on every day during the emergency.
