City council meets in person for first time since March

Gatesville City Council met at City Hall Tuesday, marking the council’s first in-person gathering since their March 24 meeting. Meetings since March 24 had been held via video teleconference until Tuesday.

Social distancing was observed and masks were worn by all city officials in attendance to meet the governor’s current coronavirus disease 2019 prevention restrictions.

Council members began the meeting with discussion and approval of an ordinance to follow all of Governor Greg Abbott’s future guidance in regard to COVID-19. The intent of the ordinance is compliance with the governor’s orders to allow the reopening of businesses and COVID-19-related restrictions or the revocation of restrictions.

“We will essentially implement the procedures the governor puts in place,” City Manager Bill Parry said.

Council members also heard a briefing from Anna Barge, special projects coordinator, Central Texas Council of Governments, about CTCOG’s Elder and Vulnerable Adult Justice Program.
