The health and well-being of our citizens, employees and the community is a top priority for the City of Watauga. We understand the concern and uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are committed to being responsive to the needs of the community as the situation evolves.
In coordination with Tarrant County Health Services and in response to the declarations of a State of Emergency by the County, State of Texas and the President of the United States, the City of Watauga is following recommendations to minimize the potential for spread of the COVID-19 virus. Included in these recommendations are the closures of the Hector F. Garcia Community Center and the Library to the public as well as the cancellation of Watauga sponsored events for the next 2 weeks, effective immediately.
City offices will remain open at this time, however, City Administration strongly recommends that citizens utilize alternative methods of contact with staff including the use of the City’s online payment portal and contact via phone or email. Please remember that the City is expecting heavier than normal call volume, so the wait times may be longer than usual.
We strongly encourage you to use the City’s digital applications. You can access updates on the City’s website.
If you haven’t registered for emergency updates through the City’s Civic Ready application, you are encouraged to do so. The Civic Ready notification tool will be utilized to provide emergency updates. All other updates may be found on the City’s website and the City’s Facebook page.
With the health and safety of our citizens in mind, the City would like you to know:
The City will continue to keep the public updated and appreciate the cooperation of all concerned.
