Welcome to Chatom
During this time of uncertainty I want to assure that all essential services in the Town of Chatom are well maintained and will remain so. I would like to emphasize the “6 foot distance between persons” rule while shopping and at our local restaurants. We, as always, are here to support all of our citizens and businesses. If you are in need please do not hesitate to call our office during regular business hours.
With God’s grace and all of us coming together to help each other we will come through this and continue to enjoy our blessed lives.
