A Letter from Mayor Billy P. DavisMayor 2

May 6, 2020

Dear Residents,

In the last 10 days, Gov. Abbott has slowly lifted restrictions when it comes to the opening of businesses and staying at home. More businesses like hair salons, barbershops, nail salons and tanning salons can open this Friday. Hopefully, these businesses in our city will do so and start to rebuild their clientele.

With the Governor’s three-phase plan in mind, our City administrators have put together a three-phase program. We are currently in Phase 1 where city staff is safely preparing to open City Hall by appointment only and other City buildings like Public Works and the Animal Shelter beginning next week with the implementation of Phase 2. If all goes well, Phase 3 will begin May 18.

During our process, we will continue to follow the direction of Gov. Abbott and adjust our plans if needed.

We have been warned about a possible uptick in COVID-19 cases as the state slowly opens. However, we can still do our part by washing our hands, not congregating in large groups, maintaining social distancing, and wearing face masks when possible. In our city, we’ve had 16 cases with six recoveries and fortunately no deaths. If we remain diligent, hopefully, we can keep our cases down.

Thank you for your patience and persistence in overcoming this pandemic.

Dear Residents,

 Local businesses have always been a valuable asset and play an essential role in our community. Since the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, many of our businesses have taken a big hit to their bottom lines and have shuttered their doors and laid off or furloughed employees to remain viable. 

 The Crowley Economic Development Corporation approved the Crowley Cares Economic Grant Relief Program in a joint meeting with the City Council on Monday night. Hopefully, the businesses that qualify for the grant will take advantage of it to help them retain employees and provide other necessities while we weather this storm. Let’s continue to frequent our businesses the best that we can.

 We still don’t know how much longer we will be navigating this pandemic, but we do know we are making progress in getting back to the new normal.

 Thankfully, Governor Abbott announced on Monday his plans to re-open the state in phases beginning Friday. There is still a degree of uncertainty regarding the safety of lifting the stay-at-home order. So, please continue to practice caution with social distancing and follow the guidelines sent down from the state as you venture outside and return to work. (See link for CDC guidelines below).

 Also, our city administrators are currently developing a plan to re-open City Hall, the Library, the Animal Shelter, and other city facilities. Please stay tuned for those announcements.

 Together, we are getting through this.

 Mayor Billy P. Davis

 Dear Residents,

As we continue with orders to stay at home as the country and the world attempts to flatten the curve due to the effects of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we thank you for your patience and – at times - long-suffering as we navigate through unknown territory in fighting this deadly disease.

 We have given sound advice from reputable health agencies as well as our federal, state and county leaders on how to combat COVID-19.  We do this by remaining at home, washing our hands, not touching our faces, social distancing when out, keeping our shopping to a minimum or shopping alone, if possible, and wearing masks and gloves if you feel inclined. 

 In Crowley, our City Offices, Public Works, Animal Shelter, Library, Recreation Center, playgrounds and pavilions are closed to public access.

 Fortunately, and thanks to our residents for adhering to social distancing, the trails and open areas in our parks remain open for you to enjoy the fresh air while jogging, walking, biking or participating in exercise activities. 

 Currently, the State of Texas has the Texas Order allowing authorities to levy fines up to $1,000 or imprisonment for up to 180 days – or both – for those not adhering to these guidelines.

 Here in Crowley, we have chosen to pass along the advice of the experts on what to do and not do through our social media sites, the city website, and other forms of communication, and encourage you to govern yourselves.  We want it to continue that way, but we need to strengthen our resolve. 

 We are deeply concerned for the people who have been furloughed or lost their jobs.  Many are struggling to put food on the table and pay the bills. We know there are many businesses – small and large – that are struggling as well. 

 Together, we will get through this, but it will take a renewed effort and continued diligence, and as boring, frustrating, and disheartening staying at home and social distancing may be, it is a necessity for a while longer.

 If you aren’t following these guidelines, please start. If you are following these guidelines, thank you, and please continue to do so.  If we all make these sacrifices, we will minimize the risks to everyone.

 Let’s show that Crowley does care!

Warmest Regards,

Billy P. Davis, Mayor
