During today's press release Smith County Judge has issued a Stay in Place order to begin at 11:59pm. The City will remain closed to public walk in traffic but will continue to receive utility payments through the night drop box, online, or over the phone. To ensure the well being of our staff we will be modifying the office so our employees can work remotely from home and only coming into the office as needed. The utility workers will begin a staggered shift to comply with social distancing and for their health and safety during this time. We ask that you only go out in public places if necessary and use good judgement when you do. Please remember to share facts not fears. Thank you for bearing with us through this pandemic and stay healthy.
