The state has released its first set of CENSUS 2020 numbers and Comer leads all of the citys in Madison County and close to 87%.  Please, if you havent already, complete your Census 2020 form and get it mailed in.  The National Census has shortened the time period to get the forms tunrned in by 30 days.  Please try hard to get your form in by the last day of August.  Every Comer Citizen matters and each Census Form for the citizens of Comer means money for our city. 


***Please do not pile limbs up at the end of your property unless you have contracted someone to come and get the limbs for you.  The city does NOT pick up limbs and neither does AAA Garbage Service.

CUSTOMER COMMENT****7/30/20  "The Comerian"

"The fresh baked bread is unbelievable!!!  Ill be back weekly!!!"



****NOTICE***** Hand Sanitizers**********

Please excercise safety every chance you get.  Dont forget to wash your hands and when you do, wash them for at least 20 seconds.  We have recieved word that you should NOT use certain types of hand sanitizers that contain Methanol.  You may Google this to get more specific information and I believe there is a list of type that they are reccomending that you not use.




Over the last several weeks, our city workers and police officers have noticed piles of limbs accumulating around town.  The City does NOT pick up limbs as we do not have the capabilty.  If you have limbs piled up on your property at the street, we are kindly asking you to have the limbs removed.  Failure to not comply couldbe an ordinance violation.
