City of Petersburg Government offices will close on Friday, January 21 because of snow and freezing temperatures. All non-essential employees will work from home. Essential employees will report to work. If any city worker is unsure of their status, please contact your supervisor or department head. 

There will be a 2-hour delay in bus service in the City on Friday.
