During the Special Called Meeting Thursday, May 14, 2020, the City Council approved the reopening of the following on Monday, May 18, 2020:
- City Hall
- Police Department
- Overton City Park – Playground Equipment
- Overton City Park – RV Park
The Council did NOT approve the reopening of the Community Building because of the potential to have large gatherings. The Council made the decision to reopen the Community Building when Governor Abbott reopens venues where there would be the potential for large gatherings.
When visiting City Hall or the Police Department, there will be a limit of one (1) person in the lobby at any given time. City Hall has two (2) lobbies and there will be a limit of one person per lobby. Additional customers will need to wait outside while practicing social distancing. Staff highly recommends customers and citizens wear a mask when visiting City Hall or the Police Department.
We are excited about the reopening for our citizens and want to make sure you and well as our employees are protected. Stay Safe Overton!
