Mayor Phyllis Santleben and Chief of Police Brian Jackson as your Emergency Response Coordinators are working diligently with Medina County Emergency Services to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus. We monitor the State situation daily through conference calls with the State Health agency system.
We will post and update citizens as new information concerning the virus becomes available.
At this time, the City will be adopting the spread mitigation strategies suggested by the Texas State Health Services and CDC.
The primary measure to mitigate the spread of this virus is social distancing. Social distancing involves creating 6’ feet of separation between gatherings of individuals in well- ventilated areas.
To facilitate this, we have authorized the closure of non- essential services, until further notice. Non- essential services are the Castroville Regional Library, the RV Park reservations and facilities, and the City Pool.
Tourist locations in the trust of the City are also considered non- essential and will also be closed.
Mitigating community spread will also include postponing all City Council, Boards, and Commissions meetings in public venues until further notice.
Mitigation will also include suspension of all Special Events and all City-sponsored events until further notice.
City Municipal Court will also be affected. Currently, all trials have been postponed until further notice. Individuals needing to appear in court are urged to contact the court first to inquire about resolving their matter(s) without having to appear in person at 830-931-4089. Persons may use the online payment system. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with name, date of birth, current address, citation number, and a phone number for further information.
Castroville has a special place in our hearts because of the people in it. Each and every one of you is special...our thoughts and prayers are with you.
