Description: 

Although the story does not make its location explicit, Jefferson's town hall is presumably near the courthouse, and home to both the Mayor's and the Sheriff's offices. Mayors from two different generations try to resolve the problem of Miss Emily's taxes; the last one asks her to come to the Sheriff's office to pay them, "at her convenience" (120).
