San Augustine Council Update


Our main concern at the City is to ensure continued essential services while the emergency exists, and to cooperate fully with Federal, State and County Agencies.


Since the last Council meeting the City is taking the following steps: (in no specific order)

Code enforcement is being deferred to avoid interactions with the public and avoid financially stressing residents

City Hall is periodically being disinfected, and we are limiting the number of folks physically allowed in the buildings as well as restricting how the building is entered
As I mentioned in the last Council meeting we have discontinued rental of City owned buildings as well as temporarily stopped other use by local groups

The ball park has been closed out 21. There were some large groups using the ball court
There is a Coronavius page on the City Website at and constant updates are being made to FB about any updates on City Services or things we get from official sources such as Texas Municipal League or the Centers for Disease Control

I spoke to the Co-op, and we are not expecting any outages with the supply grid/generation
We are not expecting supply disruption for treatment chemicals at either the Water or Waste Water plants

The Library is closed, and where possible staff is working inside to clean and do other activities in anticipation of re-opening

Although we are not publicizing this, no resident’s utilities will be terminated for nonpayment during the crisis

The City PD will cooperate in any way possible with State and County to enforce the Shelter in Place Order issued by the County while I was drafting this update. I have attached it hereto
None of our employees are currently ill, and we are doing our best to limit interaction with individuals outside the organization or groups within. Staff meetings have either shifted locations to keep social distance or have been suspended for now


The situation is highly fluid, and we will be reacting for a while. No one has been through this.
