TAYLOR, Texas – In response to recent announcements by Williamson County and the Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) in response to the rapidly changing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Taylor is announcing several additional adjustments to City services, including the cancellation of the Blackland Prairie Days celebration scheduled for May 2, 2020.
Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell issued an order on Wednesday, March 18, stating that community gatherings of 10 people or more anywhere in Williamson County have been prohibited for the next eight weeks to slow the transmission of COVID-19. The ban on public or private gatherings, part of Orders adopted by Judge Gravell, took effect at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, and will continue until Monday, May 11, 2020, unless otherwise extended or terminated by the Williamson County Judge or by action of the Williamson County Commissioners Court.
In response, the City of Taylor has cancelled or postponed several upcoming events, including the following:
All City buildings, including City Hall, Public Works, Utility Billing, and Maintenance, will be closed to the public until March 31. Residents will still be able to contact City Hall employees through telephone or email. To contact City Hall, call 512-352-3675.
There currently are no changes to public safety and City of Taylor water and sewer services. However, beginning Monday, March 23, all residential collection services are reduced to “cart only” in order to reduce chance of contact of our personnel with solid waste via manual pickup. Additionally, Residential collection services are impacted accordingly:
City Council will meet on Monday, March 23, at 6 p.m. to discuss the possible extension of the Disaster Declaration. Leisure activities at Parks are still permitted, but residents are asked to follow Judge Gravell’s guidelines of no more than 10 people per gathering.
